Everyone knows that the last thing a business owner or investor wants to do is to spend money on lawyers. We believe that the best lawyers are those that do everything within their power to keep their clients out of the courtroom. Whenever they do end up in the courtroom, it is an attorney’s job to fight hard but keep the costs low. Too often, we see lawyers that operate as nothing but “billing machines” that seek every excuse to bill clients outrageous sums with little or no effect on reaching the client’s objectives.



The termination of an employment relationship is one of the most difficult events a person can go through. Often, the employee that was let go has reason to believe that the termination was unfair or even illegal. At the same time, employers usually believe that everything they did was strictly a matter of good business and that no laws were broken.

At BASH & POLYACHENKO, we have experience in representing employees and small to medium-sized companies in litigation arising out of the termination of the employment relationship. Many people are surprised to learn that we are comfortable working for both sides, since typically lawyers represent strictlyPlaintiffs or Defendants in these types of cases. In fact, we believe that the ability to see the big picture from each side’s point of view provides a lawyer a tremendous advantage in obtaining the best possible outcome for a client.


Entertainment & Sports

Having lived in Los Angles for most of their lives and worked in law offices in Beverly Hills, Century City, and Hollywood, it was inevitable that Attorneys Steven Bash and Alexander Polyachenko would meet clients in the entertainment and sports industries. As a result, our firm has handled legal matters relating to media of all types (TV, film, music, publishing, advertising, internet & new media) as well as athlete and talent representation. Some of the legal issues that involve entertainment and sports law can also encompass other legal fields including but not limited to corporate, finance, intellectual property, publicity and privacy, and first amendment. We are proud of both our abilities and our affiliations with specialized outside counsel that allows us to represent anyone from the single artist or athlete to the large production company or sports organization.
