Private Security Company Representation
Clients in the Security Industry
Our business lawyers in Los Angeles at Bradley & Gmelich represent private security companies, alarm businesses, Private Patrol Operators (PPO), electronic surveillance companies, security system monitoring operations, executive protection specialists, and all private security-related entities. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with the standards in the security industry, and have assisted in drafting legislation related to the security industry. We have authored training programs for the State mandated training programs, and regularly write articles for National and California security organizations. For the past decade, our attorneys have served as Legal Advisors to the California Association for Licensed Security Agencies, Guards & Associates (CALSAGA), the non-profit trade group professionalizing the security industry. Whether your company is multi-national or a sole proprietorship, for highly knowledgeable attorneys who will help manage the legal details of your security business, contact Bradley & Gmelich.
Our administrative law attorneys have comprehensive knowledge of the standards and licensing requirements in the security industry and have actively participated in drafting legislation in conjunction with the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (California BSIS), the licensing and enforcement body for California. Whether a security company faces a compliance audit, a Department of Consumer Affairs complaint, or needs to provide employees with regulatory compliance training, our knowledgeable attorneys can help. Our business formation attorneys also assist entrepreneurs wishing to re-organize or start a security-related business.
Our attorneys vigorously represent private security companies and their employees in civil lawsuits. We have successfully provided many security and alarm companies with negligent security defense, as well as representing them in actions alleging assault and battery, excessive use of force during an arrest, false imprisonment, civil rights violations, and defamation. We focus on resolving security company business disputes, from breach of contract actions to unfair trade practices and unfair competition. We provide vigorous defense to security service employers in employment law matters, such as claims alleging age discrimination, race discrimination, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and any type of employment claim.
Our litigators benefit from the advice of our appellate lawyers, who often work in partnership with our trial attorneys when it appears that a matter might proceed on appeal. Our appellate lawyers have a strong background in general civil litigation. Consequently, they are able to help draft motions for summary judgment with an eye on the appellate ramifications before the matter is even heard by the trial court. The depth and range of our experience increases efficiency in our pretrial and trial work. Our appellate attorneys are always available to assist our trial counsel, whether before, during or after trial. If an appeal becomes necessary, our appellate attorneys provide clients with skilled representation. Our success on appeal has won our firm an enviable reputation.
Contracts, Document Drafting and Review
We regularly review and draft contracts, security service agreements, employee manuals, and policy and procedure manuals, with special knowledge associated with wage and hour issues arising out of the security industry. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to clients’ needs in time-sensitive matters. We help our clients prevent future litigation by assisting them with the proper development of employee manuals, policies involving use of force, and procedure documents that will withstand future challenges.
