Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding business law can be complex, but we’re here to simplify it. This section covers various topics to help you navigate legal challenges and how we. Explore the questions below to learn more about our services and how we can assist you.

What types of business law services do you offer?

We provide comprehensive business law services, including contract negotiations, commercial dispute resolution, employer advising on wage and hour and employment issues, lawsuit defense, advising on breaches of contract, and more. Our goal is to meet all your legal needs to help your business thrive.

How experienced is your team in handling business litigation?

Our law firm, led by Attorney Nick Heimlich, has extensive experience in business litigation. We have a proven track record of effectively resolving commercial disputes and protecting our client’s business interests.  Although Mr. Heimlich has many years of experience and many good results for clients, he cannot guarantee any particular outcome or result for a client or case.

Do you offer personalized legal advice for businesses?

Yes, we tailor our legal services to each client’s unique needs. By understanding your business’s specific challenges and opportunities, we provide personalized and effective legal solutions.  A big part of our firm’s focus is understanding our client and their objectives so that our advice is based upon their goals and objectives.  The best advice requires understanding the goal, not simply giving standard advice without regard for our client’s needs or wants.

What methods are used to resolve business disputes?

Business disputes can be resolved through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation. Negotiation involves direct discussions between parties, while mediation uses a neutral third party. Arbitration involves a binding decision by a third party, and litigation takes the dispute to court.  Generally speaking, negotiation is the lowest cost form of dispute resolution and is favorable if a reasonable solution can be reached.  Mediation has costs, but is far more cost effective than full arbitration or litigation.  Both arbitration and litigation tend to be rather expensive both in terms of court or arbitrator fees and legal fees.


What should I expect during my first consultation?

During your first consultation, we will discuss your business’s legal needs and challenges. Our aim here is to understand your situation thoroughly so we can offer tailored legal advice and strategies. The Consultation is about learning the key information to understand the client’s concerns and goals.

How often should my businesses consult with an attorney?

It is recommended that business owners regularly consult with a business attorney to stay updated on legal changes, review contracts, and address any emerging legal issues promptly. Doing so will allow your business to avoid costly problems that may arise in the future.  At a minimum every few months can make sense, but anytime a new significant contract is being reviewed, or a dispute involving over $15,000 or more can justify the need for legal advice.

What should my businesses know about employment law?

Employment law covers employee rights, wage and hour laws, and anti-discrimination regulations. Compliance is vital to avoid legal disputes and maintain a fair workplace.  A key rule is that the sooner you consult with an attorney, the better.  If consulted early, sometimes Mr. Heimlich is able to help suggest ways to try to minimize legal exposure.  That early discussion can offer alternatives to resolving issues or how to manage a problem.  Some key things to consider are anytime you are going to hire, fire, or change compensation structure for an employees, a consultation can make sense.  Also, an initial consultation to understand what is required of an employer is also useful.

Can you assist with wage and hour compliance issues?

Absolutely. We have extensive experience dealing with administrative bodies such as the Department of Labor Standards and Enforcement (DLSE) and can help ensure your business remains compliant with relevant regulations.  Many businesses have questions about wage and hour issues such as minimum wage, overtime, meals and rest breaks and classifying workers as employees or independent contractors.

This was the first time ever needing a lawyer for something, I was a bit frantic and overwhelmed with everything going on, but Nick and his team were very professional and honest, and made me feel at ease about my case. They were even professional and cool with the opposing attorney even though she was being unprofessional at times. In the end, they were able to settle my case and bring me a satisfying outcome. If you're ever in a bind and need a business lawyer, I highly recommend Nick and his team.

Mr Heimlich was very professional kind and knowledgeable when I give him a call. I was calling to hire an attorney for an tenant and landlord dispute. I had a particular issue that Mr Heimlich took time to completely listen to me. unfortunately the area I needed help was not an area that Mr Nick practiced. but he was not hesitant to give me some leads and direct me to the right place. he's a man of character and cares about what he does, I can only imagine his level of excellence in his area of expertise. he's a man of great character and I would recommend him for anyone to give him a call and talk to him. thank you very much Nick. thank you for caring .

I entered into a membership contract that had unreasonable cancellation requirements. I went to Nick through my company’s employee assistance program. Nick did thorough research and found that the contract term exceeded term limits allowed by California law. As a result, I was able to cancel the contract without any penalty. I was very satisfied with the outcome.

My family cannot thank Nick enough.

He was able to get us amazing results. Hands down the best attorney we have ever worked with.
