Some of the nation’s largest companies and best-known brands – including Wal-Mart, Herbalife, Microsoft and VIZIO – have turned to LTL to tackle thorny, high-risk and high-value litigation matters. LTL has scored an impressive string of victories – often against opposing counsel comprised of armies of BigLaw attorneys. Collectively, the firm is a lean, but powerful litigation machine. LTL has offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County and New York.
