No one wants to think about the costs and stakes of a lawsuit. But it sometimes happens and when it does, we vigorously protect our clients, defending them in contract matters, trade secret disputes, employment claims, and more. We can guide your business safely through any other legal situations that arise. We have represented clients in venues throughout California, including San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles. Our office in Oakland now represents clients in the San Francisco Bay area.
Our attorneys work together using an advanced online office system designed specifically for our firm, to allow our attorneys to work on a case, exchange documents, share calendars, and communicate with each other in a unique way. This cloud-based system saves time and money, translating into savings for you. We will meet with you on a monthly basis to update you on the progress of your case, and discuss any upcoming actions and associated costs, so you are never surprised, and always know what to expect.
As a small business ourselves, we know that your money should be going back into your business. We are sensitive to the potentially high costs of legal representation, and have made a conscious decision to bill at hourly rates that are often half as much as other, bigger firms. We pride ourselves on offering reasonable and flexible rates to our business clients.
Because we optimize our caseload, we have the ability to offer personalized attention to each of our clients. Our attorneys will speak with you directly, and are always available to answer any questions or provide any updates. Following a project-management approach to litigation, we take the time to understand you, your business, and your goals, and work with you to manage the progress of the case and to control the legal expenses.
Our attorneys are adept at negotiating on behalf of your business to save costs of litigation and resolve matters quickly and efficiently. Before even filing a lawsuit, demand letters can be effective in setting forth the disputed issues to an opposing party and outlining possible solutions. After the commencement of litigation, tools like mediation, arbitration, and settlement conferences can be used to reach beneficial agreements between parties. These types of alternate dispute resolution can be cost-effective methods of resolving matters that could potentially be in court for months or even years.
Negotiating on your behalf is a skill that our attorneys have mastered, and we have a history of utilizing dispute resolution forms to resolve cases and advantageously gain valuable information and strategy from opposing parties.
