Business Law

Balance, proportion and stability are crucial to business. For a small or medium-sized business, litigation can distract from core business issues and cause significant financial and resource drains. Litigation, for a business person, is the navigation of relatively unfamiliar and troubled waters. How these waters are navigated is one thing that separates out some of the highest performing businesses and professionals from the pack.

Our San Francisco business law lawyers at Leigh Law Group are experienced in working with individuals and businesses to manage litigation outcomes in a manner that is cost-effective, efficient and designed to work in concert to the extent possible with business goals.

The firm has successfully defended and prosecuted numerous business litigation matters. Our clients include media companies, manufacturers, distributors, software companies, and other small and medium-sized businesses in breach of contract matters and other business-related litigation. Additionally, our rate structure is designed to be manageable, transparent and sensitive to the realities of businesses who are working to balance limited and competing resources. We look forward to developing a long-standing relationship that allows your business to flourish in the ever-changing environment in which we live. We are prepared to represent clients on issues including, but not limited to:

CONTRACT LAW

The attorneys at Leigh Law Group have litigated hundreds of contract matters over the years, running the gamut from straightforward collection matters to breaches of settlement agreements to buy-sell agreements. We have a record of achieving our clients' goals so they can get back to what made them successful in the first place.

BUSINESS DISPUTES

We have successfully handled partnership disputes and minority shareholder disputes. In one matter, Mr. Jambeck obtained a nearly $2 million settlement for a founder of a Silicon Valley software company who had his shares wrongfully diluted via a series of onerous corporate maneuvers by an interested set of officers and directors.

SECURITIES LITIGATION

Mr. Jambeck obtained a $1-plus million judgment in a securities fraud case for plaintiffs who were defrauded in a real estate Ponzi scheme and then fought the case all the way through bankruptcy proceedings to obtain relief from the bankruptcy court.

In another matter, Mr. Jambeck litigated a suit in a Midwest state for California investors who were defrauded in a real estate scam and achieved a mid-six-figure recovery for his clients even though the matter was litigated in the home state of the defendants.
