LTL is a powerhouse business trial and litigation firm.
Our attorneys are dedicated solely to litigation, trials and arbitration in three key practice areas: intellectual property, complex commercial, and class actions. Our attorneys have recovered over $400 million on behalf of plaintiffs and obtained complete defense verdicts in bet-the-company cases against claims over $500 million. We know that choosing an attorney for your case is an important decision and we also recognize that you have many choices. You want the confidence of knowing that the attorneys you hire will ensure you get the best results possible. We are such attorneys. We are not only a “safe” choice, but we are your top choice for your most complex and high-stakes matters.
We Are Sophisticated Lawyers
“[LTL] provides big firm strategic advice and case handling with an eye towards efficiency and affordability.”
Mark Goldzweig / Executive Director & Associate General Counsel, Kia Motors America
Our attorneys have excellent backgrounds matching those of any top firm in the country. Our attorneys have worked at prestigious international firms such as Quinn Emanuel, Lovells, Morgan Lewis, Mannatt Phelps, Paul Hastings, Sheppard Mullin, and Perkins Coie. Our attorneys are graduates of top law schools such as Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Michigan, and Virginia. We have been recognized by our peers and leading legal publications as among the “Best Lawyers Under 40 in America,” “Top 20 Under 40 in California,” and Southern California’s “Super Lawyers Rising Stars.” We are AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell.
We Are Trial Lawyers
“[LTL are the] finest trial lawyers I’ve faced, and I’ve faced some of the best in the country.”
Former head of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Orange County
It is no secret that most business lawyers have limited, if any, trial experience. Not us. Our attorneys have tried or arbitrated bet-the-company cases. Because of our trial experience and success, we are often hired by clients on the eve of trial. This also enables us to get better settlements because opposing counsels know that we are not afraid to go to trial. In fact, the former head of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Orange County referred to us as “one of the finest trial lawyers I’ve faced, and I’ve faced some of the best in the country.”
We Have A Proven Track Record
“[LTL are] trusted litigation counsel.”
Anh-Thu Pham / Corporate Counsel, Microsemi Corporation
Our attorneys have successfully represented entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 clients. We have tried (and won) more trials, arbitrations and appeals than most firms many times larger. Our results speak for themselves.
We Offer Creative Fee Options
“[LTL is a] crucial, trusted business partner that cost-effectively does an exceptional job.”
Michael Don / Senior Vice President, Product Development, Pinkberry
No two cases are the same, and no two clients are alike. That is why we offer a number of creative fee options to accommodate the varying types of cases and clients we serve. For example, we often handle what we call “5-to-50” cases ($5 million to $50 million) on contingency. We only get paid if you win. For straight billable matters, our rates are typically 30%-40% lower than those charged by comparable attorneys at larger firms. Furthermore, we can customize any fee arrangement that makes sense for a particular matter, including fixed fees, caps, hybrid, etc.
We Are Your Business Partners
“[LTL are a] strident advocate in the courtroom but also a business partner in the board room.”
Martin Nguyen / General Counsel, BRG Sports (Formerly Easton-Bell Sports)
Not all attorneys are created equal. Some are great for some cases, but not right for others. As such, we ensure that the right team is dedicated to your case. We will provide you with candid assessments of the strengths and weaknesses of your case and we treat our clients as long-term business partners.
