Being in the heart of Silicon Valley, the firm has effectively handled business disputes on behalf of traditional and startup ventures. The attorneys at the firm have handled and continue to handle a wide spectrum of business litigation matters, including partnership disputes, corporate dissolutions, breach of contract, limited liability company (LLC) issues, closely held corporation shareholder matters, contractor disputes, employment issues and insurance coverage matters. Likewise, the firm’s lawyers have handled disputes in a wide array of industries including construction, high tech, real estate, food production, legal field, property management, retail and the entertainment arena.

What Ara J Law brings to the table is the ability to provide effective solutions at a value. The biggest fallacy in the legal field is that one needs high priced big firms in order to have the best lawyers on your side. Having handled cases that were result oriented, the firm understands that getting sidetracked in peripheral issues negatively impacts the business’s bottom line, which does nothing but benefit the lawyers. Ara J Law seeks to establish long-term relationships with its business clients, with the mindset of getting to resolution in the most effective, yet efficient way possible. To the extent that it becomes apparent that an efficient resolution is not possible, Ara J Law has the experience and expertise to carry the case through trial.

Sometimes a pure hourly fee model prevents startup and small businesses from pursuing their rights. Ara J Law seeks to work with its business clients in coming up with flexible and creative fee structures that allow for more predictability and flexibility for the client. Depending on the issues in a particular case, such arrangements are available.
