Lori Werderitch is a partner in the Litigation Department of Greenberg Glusker, handling a broad spectrum of matters for businesses of all sizes, high-net-worth individuals, and bankruptcy estate trustees.

An experienced litigator, Lori advises clients through all phases of litigation, from pre-litigation counseling and negotiation through trial, appeal, and collection. Lori has achieved client success through settlements and motion practice, including obtaining favorable pre-litigation settlement terms as well as early voluntary dismissals as a result of pleading challenges. She has further succeeded in obtaining awards granting dispositive motions including motions for judgment on the pleadings and motions for summary judgment/adjudication.

In all matters, Lori focuses on delivering client success with bottom-line cost-effectiveness.

In 2018, Lori co-chaired the trial team and delivered a closing argument in a breach of contract and construction dispute, resulting in a $2.1 million damages award for the client, including an award for 100% of incurred legal fees. She has also successfully tried real estate disputes and unlawful detainer actions, also resulting in fee awards.

Representing clients in a range of industries, Lori’s experience encompasses:

  • Handling complex business disputes involving unfair business practices, breach of contract, defamation, and fraud.
  • Defending employers in potential class actions arising from alleged wage and hour violations, as well as single-plaintiff lawsuits alleging wrongful termination, retaliation, and discrimination. She also represents employers in seeking Workplace Violence Restraining Orders on behalf of employees experiencing threats of violence in the workplace.
  • Successfully negotiating favorable settlement terms on behalf of Bankruptcy Trustees prior to filing adversary proceedings as well as on the eve of trial. She has also achieved winning results on motions to withdraw the reference, motions for summary judgment, and trial.
  • Representing owners and landlords in pursuit of possession, in prosecuting construction defects, and in defense of tenant and third party contract and tort claims. In addition to achieving client success as a result of trial or stipulated settlements, Lori has successfully argued to exclude opposing expert witnesses.

Lori is an avid supporter of the Alliance For Children’s Rights, dedicating significant pro bono hours every year toward securing guardianships and increased benefits for children in California’s foster care system. She also sits on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of non-profit Communities in Schools – Los Angeles, a drop out prevention program servicing LAUSD’s highest-need communities.

Lori currently serves as the President-Elect of the Century City Bar Association, as well as a member of its Board of Governors, having formerly served as its Vice-President (2018-2019) and Treasurer (2016-2018).
