Mr. Caplan graduated from the U.C.L.A. School of Law in 1978, near the top of his class.He was a Rutan & Tucker trial lawyer from 1979 to 2001 and a partner of the firm for 15 years starting in 1985.Mr. Caplan's trial practice specialized in real estate litigation (including multi-million dollar landslide and subsidence lawsuits), commercial landlord-tenant litigation, homeowner's association matters, construction defect and construction administration lawsuits, acquisitions, specific performance and lis pendens litigation, valuations, option suits, easement disputes, brokers' commission litigation, fixtures disputes and other real estate litigation.Mr. Caplan has also handled business litigation matters, including insurance policy interpretation and bad faith cases, printing industry disputes, Internet and other contract litigation, and disputes among fiduciaries.His mediation practice runs the gamut of civil litigation, including business and real estate disputes, insurance coverage and interpretation cases, employment disputes, construction defect and performance lawsuits, and product defect and injury cases.
Mr. Caplan believes that his recent litigation experience gives him a decided advantage in mediating disputes.
"If parties understand the expense, risk, distractions and personal toll that come with protracted litigation (including trial and appeal) in today's legal system, they will try to make a serious attempt to resolve their dispute.They can only do this when they have enough information to assess the risks involved so they can come to a rough approximation of the likely outcome of the case.My role is to assist the parties in getting to that level of case evaluation and bring them to the point where they can formulate an agreed solution to the problem, rather than leaving the matter to be resolved by third parties in a process that is out of their control.These principles apply to the multimillion dollar dispute where risk assessment can be the most significant factor, to smaller matters where litigation cost control predominates."-- William J. Caplan
