Finch Tetzlaff LLP

Finch Tetzlaff LLP helps individuals and businesses protect their interests through all areas of civil litigation, including business litigation, real estate litigation, property management, and insurance defense. Partners Brent Finch and David Tetzlaff are experienced litigators, serving clients throughout California in defense of their litigated matters.

Our practice, located in the City of Calabasas, encompasses a wide range of legal matters, including general business litigation involving contract and tort claims; general liability complaints against individuals and landlords; fraud and nondisclosure cases between buyers and sellers and brokers and agents; landlord-tenant disputes; property management disputes and enforcement; interstate and intrastate transportation; employment disputes; unfair competition; and trade secret litigation. Finch Tetzlaff LLP represents national and local businesses and individuals across several industries.

The attorneys at Finch Tetzlaff LLP have substantial experience representing clients in federal and state courts throughout California and the Western United States, litigating all phases of a case, from business planning, risk management, pre-litigation assessment, and litigation.

While the new priority for business operating in California should include avoiding litigation when possible through effective business planning, underwriting, and risk analysis, when litigation becomes necessary, the attorneys at Finch Tetzlaff LLP are your trusted partners and advisors, understanding your business, protecting your specific interests, and working for a solution that best meets your needs.

The best resolution may not require taking a case to trial. As an advocate for businesses and property owners throughout California, we strive to become a valued extension of our client’s business team, collaborating at each step, from strategic planning to case management. This partnership includes providing each client with the best possible representation, up to and including trial.

While the attorneys at Finch Tetzlaff LLP emphasize prelitigation counseling and settlement negotiations, they have successfully handled hundreds of cases in various forums, including mediation, arbitration, jury trials, bench trials, and appeals before the California Court of Appeal and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

“After experiencing significant revenue losses due to the pandemic and watching other businesses in our center shut their doors for good, we called Finch Tetzlaff for help. They quickly and expertly negotiated a lease amendment with our landlord’s counsel that includes significant rent deferral and abatement and even reduces our exposure on our personal guaranty. More importantly, we can now focus on growing our business. We highly recommend Finch Tetzlaff.”
