THE SPOTLIGHT CORNER
SPONSOR OF THE MONTH
LTL ATTORNEYS LLP (LTL) is a proud supporter of APABA Silicon Valley. We are particularly pleased to have partnered with APABA Silicon Valley for its Equal Justice Scholarship program through which LTL sponsors two $5,000 scholarships to two deserving law students in the greater bay area. As a multi-year sponsor of this scholarship, LTL deeply shares in APABA Silicon Valley’s mission to foster professional development, advocacy and community involvement for Silicon Valley's Asian Pacific American legal community, and to promote justice and equality for all.
LTL is most proud of its diversity and its service to the community throughout California. LTL is a certified minority-owned law firm with 50% of its partners of Asian descent. 70% of our nearly 40 attorneys are minority, women, or LGBT. Our diversity is perhaps our biggest asset. In today’s global economy, we not only celebrate our diversity but those diverse viewpoints make us better advocates for our clients.
We are also proud of our commitment to serving our communities. We continue to devote a substantial amount of pro bono time to assist individuals and groups unable to afford legal services. Our attorneys also assume leadership positions in various non-profit organizations, and volunteer our time with local community agencies and other organizations. We do this because we strongly believe that it is our duty to give back. Just in the Bay Area alone, our attorneys have served at the San Francisco Project Homeless Connect, the San Mateo County Legal Aid Society and Stanford Law Clinic. Our attorneys also serve on the boards of the California Minority Counsel Program and California Bar Foundation.
AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, we started in 2003 as the first spin-off of trial powerhouse Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges, LLP. Our practice is devoted solely to litigation in the areas of intellectual property, commercial disputes and class actions (consumer and employment). With nearly 40 attorneys across three offices in California (Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Orange County), we serve global clients with their most complex matters throughout the country and in key international venues, including international arbitral tribunals.
LTL has recently been recognized for its outstanding client service and innovative legal work. We were named as One of the Best Firms at Developing and Implementing Alternative Fee Arrangements and as a 2016 Client Service A-Team (BTI Consulting); we were named the 2015 Law Firm of the Year by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association; we were selected to the 2014 National Law Journal Litigation Boutiques Hot List (one of ten firms nationally); and we received the 2013 Client Service Award from the California Minority Counsel Program.
Our attorneys have been honored as among the “Top 20” in California, “Best Lawyers...in America” and “Super Lawyers” by leading legal publications and organizations. Clients and opposing counsel have referred to us as “the finest trial lawyers in the country,” “outstanding, tenacious, and cost effective,” and “creative.”
WHY US? –
We have tried more cases than most firms many times larger, and our winning record is the envy of our peers. We regularly – and successfully – litigate against the largest and best known law firms in the world. We have obtained multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements, and have achieved complete defense verdicts in bet-the-company cases.
On the plaintiff’s side, in the last 4 years alone, we have recovered approximately $300 million for our clients.
We Embrace Technology.
It is no secret that most lawyers shy away from technology and tend to do things “the way they have always done it.” We are different. We embrace the latest technology tools (including artificial intelligence) which translates to high efficiency and effective management of cases. This allows us to handle highly complex cases, and levels the playing field against much larger opposing teams.
Our rate structure is much more cost-effective than those of comparable attorneys at the large firms. In appropriate matters, we offer a number of alternative fee options including contingency, hybrids, caps, fixed fees, and other options which we have pioneered.
