Nick Heimlich, Esq.
Principal, Founder

Nick Heimlich has represented businesses and individuals throughout California and the United States involving business litigation and corporate advising. He has represented small businesses (and large businesses) against large Companies with consistent success (click here for case results). He advises each client with a strategy catered to their objectives. He advises on matters from business formation to business disputes including breach of contract, trademark, fraud, partnership disputes, and franchise disputes. (click here for practice areas).

One successful case was a $45+ million settlement recovery for a small business owner in a breach of contract case. The small business owner was owed an earn-out payment after the sale of his business to a large publicly traded Company, but the Company refused to pay. Nick led an aggressive multi-forum litigation and achieved a successful resolution within 3 months from the date the company breached the contract. Nick has defended many clients in civil litigation including business disputes, franchise law and trademark disputes.

He has successfully limited their liability saving them thousands to more than a million dollars by the adept use of factual and legal defenses combined with a comprehensive analysis of the dispute.
