Business Disputes and Transactions

Guiding Your Business

When it comes to working with outside legal counsel, too often small- to mid-sized businesses are either underserved with the legal services they receive or overcharged by legal fees, and often both at the same time. Thus, for many businesses in Southern California they have to choose between inconsistent or insufficient legal work and break-the-bank legal fees.

The Ledbetter Law Firm, APC offers a third way for businesses that need consistently top-notch legal services at reasonable rates that maximize both efficiency and long-term results for the business’ bottom law line. We are dedicated to helping businesses in handling business transactions and disputes, from business formation and contract drafting to all types of dispute resolution. Our firm stands by our clients as long-term partners committed to their profitability and success.

A Long-Term Partner

At The Ledbetter Law Firm, APC, businesses and business owners often come to us with a single legal matter or series of matters to be resolved, such as drafting an employment agreement or responding to a threatened contractual dispute, but then, based on our work product, will elect to work with our firm as an external General Counsel on all ongoing legal matters for the business.

Regardless of whether you or your business is seeking advice on a single transaction or dispute or looking for long-term, ongoing representation, The Ledbetter Law Firm, APC will be committed to understanding the framework and needs of your business and to achieving the immediate and big picture results which will protect the assets, intellectual property, and business interests of your operation for years to come while opening up new avenues for growth.

We work with businesses through all stages of life, from business formation to ongoing financing and through dissolution and sale. Our process is designed to provide structure to your company’s operations, safeguard your company’s assets, and meet your tax planning goals. We will also assess unseen risks and safeguard against dangers such as loss of trade secrets.

In addition to helping businesses with formation, growth, and transactions, we also have extensive experience defending and prosecuting sales and leasing issues covered by the California Civil Code, Business and Professions Code, and Commercial Code, and will aggressively pursue your business’ interests in negotiation and in court. In addition to traditional UCC sales, UCC leasing, and common law contract actions, the members of the firm have defended and prosecuted matters involving:

  • Employment and Independent Contractor Agreements
  • Buy-Sell and Service Agreements
  • Shareholder Agreements / Bylaws
  • California Unfair Competition Law (Business & Professions Code Section 17200)
  • Misappropriation of trade secrets
  • UCC / Secured Transactions
We know that, for many of our clients, their business is not just their livelihood but it can also be their life’s works, and we take our commitment to be long-term partners in the protection and ongoing success of our clients’ business very seriously.

When seeking out legal representation who you can trust with the most intimate and critical parts of your business, we encourage you to be as thorough as possible. We at The Ledbetter Law Firm, APC are here to answer any question you have about we can be of ongoing service to your business.

What Our Clients Say

“Tom was able to take the complex and daunting task of putting together an estate plan and made it much simpler by asking the right questions, focusing on what really mattered, and getting it documented the right way. His down to earth nature, ability to explain things in non-lawyer terms and his deep estate planning expertise made him an excellent fit for our family and estate planning needs.”

Vish Chatterji
“I hired Tom Ledbetter to represent my company in a contentious contract dispute. One of his main strengths was communicating to me the various procedures and legal strategies throughout the litigation. His exceptional advocacy and knowledge are why I recommend him. Tom now represents my company in drafting and negotiation all of our contracts.”
