Primary Practices

A compelling and spirited litigator, Gabe P. Wright is the “go-to” attorney for his varied clientele – often handling high stakes and complex litigation.  His practice involves handling a wide variety of class action, commercial litigation, and real estate litigation matters — regularly serving as coordinating counsel for his clients. His extensive experience involves representation of clients in both state and federal court throughout California and across the United States.

Class Action. Gabe’s class action practice encompasses the defense of products liability, privacy, and consumer class actions.  He represents clients from various industry sectors including assisted living communities, financial institutions, hoteliers, hospital and medical centers, product manufacturers, and the collections industry.  His clients often face lawsuits involving the Consumer Legal Remedies Act, Unfair Business Practices, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, among other regulatory laws.

Commercial and Business Litigation. In his commercial and business litigation practice, Gabe represents clients in a broad array of business disputes, including contract disputes, corporate governance issues, shareholder and director disputes, business interference, trade secret and intellectual property, conversion, creditors’ rights, collections, commercial loan enforcement, financial elder abuse, and professional liability litigation.

Real Estate Litigation. Gabe also has a diverse and in-depth real estate litigation practice representing clients in all areas, including construction disputes, disputes over the purchase of real property, homeowners’ association disputes, and real property disputes involving easements and encroachments. In addition, Gabe handles commercial lease and property management disputes. Gabe’s real estate clients include owners of residential and commercial properties, homeowners’ associations, contractors, appraisers, surveyors, and real estate brokers.

Gabe routinely advises clients on pre-litigation strategy and represents them throughout the litigation process, from law and motion, TRO/injunction hearings and class certification through trial and arbitration.  In addition, he is the attorney clients turn to when facing litigation that goes “sideways” and need an experienced hand to advance their interests.

True to his Allentown, PA, upbringing, Gabe’s clients find him down-to-earth and approachable – whether the client is the owner/operator of a small neighborhood business or a chief legal officer of a large company. Gabe helps make the law understandable and accessible to his clients. They also value and appreciate his ability to carefully explain the reasoning behind his strategies. His clients know they are not just engaging an attorney; they are hiring someone who is a trusted part of their team and who is looking out for their best interests.

Gabe serves on Hahn Loeser’s Board of Directors, along with the Firm’s National Diversity and Inclusion Committee and is the Chair of Hahn Loeser’s San Diego Litigation Practice Group. He has been recognized for his legal skill and client service by Chambers USA and Super Lawyers.  He also holds an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
