Profile

P.J. Javaheri is founding partner of ThruLaw, P.C., a boutique personal injury law firm (www.ThruLaw.com), as well as California Disabiltiy Rights Center that handles social security, disability and special education claims for claimants throughout California (www.CaliforniaDisabilityRights.org).

After receiving his J.D. from University of California at Hastings in 2005, Javaheri joined Winston & Strawn, LLP, a world-class international law firm where he sharpened his skills as a corporate and finance attorney. In 2009, he launched Juris Law Group, a boutique transactional law firm founded on the principles of efficiency and streamlined overhead (www.JurisLawGroup.com). With the success of this model, Javaheri later founded ThruLaw, P.C. and California Disability Rights Center. In recognition of his skills and dedication to his vocation, Javaheri has been named to the California Super Lawyers Rising Stars list 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Mr. Javaheri concentrates his practice on representing companies of all sizes and major corporations.  He currently serves as outside general counsel to many food processors, including Golden West Food Group, Inc., Golden West Trading, Inc. and Completely Fresh Foods, Inc.  In his role as general counsel, he has negotiated and secured several national license agreements.

Javaheri is an entrepreneur and active member of the California Bar.  He serves an advisor and general counsel to companies, and for nearly a decade, has helped take ideas from sticky notes and whiteboards to fully developed, robust companies. In addition to continuing to manage the law firms he founded, Javaheri also holds several executive level positions, such as General Counsel for a large food company, COO for a venture capitalist firm, Managing Director for hospitality venues, and founder of Power Liens (www.PowerLiens.com).

Javaheri is most proud of two things thus far in his career: helping children with special education needs through his work at the California Disability Rights Center and striving to help his profession better serve clients' needs by founding Power Liens. 

Javaheri is equally devoted to his wonderful and supportive family. He has been married to his lovely wife Jasmin for 6 years and they have two young boys, Elan and Liam (ages 1 and 3). Javaheri believes strongly in the importance of family and developing strong ties to the community and is an active member of Wilshire Boulevard Temple. In 2014, Javaheri was honored with an appointment to the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities (LATLC) Honorary Board of Directors at its highest, Diamond Level.

  • At a time when landlords are credit-crunched and strapped for cash, they may find it difficult to complete tenant-improvement work, resulting in late delivery of the premises to the tenant., Delivery Delays Complicate Leasing, California Real Estate Journal, California Real Estate Journal
  • The AIR Commercial Real Estate Association, whose contract forms have been the industry standard for 50 years, has debuted a users manual that explains in plain English every paragraph within each form., Forms and Functions - AIR's new user manual explains widely used forms to brokers, California Real Estate Journal, California Real Estate Journal
  • As available credit tightens and asset values decline, it will become increasingly difficult for borrowers to keep debt service payments current and repay existing indebtedness at maturity, whether via refinancing of that indebtedness or selling the underlying real property asset. As these borrowers default on their loan obligations, what happens? This article presents a brief review of some of the factors that lenders consider following a loan default., Contributing Author, “After a Default — Working the Alternatives”, ABA Section of Business Law, Practical Resources for the Business Lawyer
  • Single-purpose entities (SPEs), also referred to interchangeably as single-asset entities or special-purpose entities, are much maligned modern real estate transactions. In financing, lenders require SPEs, seeming to hold out the presence of an SPE as a talisrnan that will ward off all future evil, while borrowers complain about the upfront and long-term costs of complying with the lender's requirements. In a purchase and sale agreement, a buyer struggles to obtain representations and warranties that survive the closing, and then must face the added challenge of negotiating for recourse to an entity that will not have any assets once the property is sold and the cash distributed. Yet, that same buyer, wearing the hat of the landlord in a lease, willingly accepts the benefits of holding title to a building in an SPE while seeking guaranties from would-be tenants who fail to bring the proverbial 'deep pocket' to the table. But all of them - landlord, tenant and lender alike - will welcome the protections of SPE ownership when a 'slip and fall' plaintiff commences litigation against anyone and everyone imaginable. The reputation of the SPE was not helped by the association of SPEs with many of the abuses attributed to certain transaction structures now eternally linked to Enron. Yet, Enron and its advisors did not invent the SPE; SPEs have long played myriad roles in real estate transactions in the USA. This paper aims to provide a brief overview of some primary advantages and disadvantages of using SPEs in US real estate transactions.  , Contributing Author, “Single-Purpose Entities in U.S. Real Estate Transactions: Are they Worth the Hassle?” , Briefings in Real Estate Finance
