Mark combines this formal education with a wide array of experiences as: an attorney with a large law firm, associate with an international, bulge-bracket investment bank, and executive positions with multiple investment, development, and asset management firms. Mark not only understands his role as a counselor and advocate, his business experience of “living with” the documents that are prepared by other lawyers, means that he is always focused on the owner-perspective of each client’s short and long-term vision, not just “papering” the transaction.

Business & Employment Disputes in Atlanta

With experience representing small and medium size businesses in commercial and employment matters, Mark Battleson brings valuable perspective to his business and employment dispute practice. While the firm is lean by design, through co-counsel relationships for larger matters, Battleson Law is equipped to handle any situation with cost-consciousness and appropriate diligence/aggression. Clients find it far less expensive to have Battleson Law handle matters as sole or lead counsel, rather than paying for large firm staff, junior associates, and heavy overhead that doesn’t materially affect the client’s outcome (other than Battleson Law clients avoiding larger bills).

Battleson Law’s unique advantage of inside knowledge of having worked on the business side for a decade, provides insight on pressure points of the opposition and where to dig for information. Mark Battleson’s experience with investigations, depositions, trials, and large deal & claim negotiations is put to use in the following matters:

  • Business and Commercial Disputes

  • Employee and Business Non-Compete, Non-Solicit, Non-Disclosure & Trade Secrets
  • Wage and Overtime Disputes (FLSA – Employee Compensation)
    • Contingency-based fee (we don’t get our fees if you don’t win)

Loan Workouts for Atlanta Businesses

Many businesses in the Atlanta area use commercial loans as startup funding, to cover major expenses in the course of business, or to overcome financial setbacks. Commercial loans often have strict terms for repayment, and they can involve large amounts of money. It is all too common for a company to run into difficulty adhering to the terms of the loan, and loan default might result.

To avoid harsh actions by lenders, such as loan acceleration or action against a collateral or personal guaranty, it is important to discuss a possible loan workout with an experienced attorney at Battleson law. We take a proactive approach to negotiate a workout with lenders, which can result in updated repayment terms that are reasonable, given your company’s financial circumstances. We can also negotiate commercial lease workouts when needed. Learn how you might avoid the serious financial consequences of a commercial loan or lease default today.

Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer & Workers’ Compensation

Having formerly worked as an attorney defending large insurance companies, multinational self-insureds, and the State of Georgia, Mark Battleson brings this valuable perspective to his personal injury practice in Atlanta. Injury cases are generally handled on a contingency basis, and we don’t get our fee until you settle or win. Battleson Law’s unique advantage of inside knowledge of how insurance companies defend their claims, and Mark Battleson’s experience with investigations, depositions, trials, and large deal & claim negotiations is put to good use to get seriously injured people the justice they deserve in cases involving: Auto Accidents, Motorcycle Accidents, Truck Accidents, Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death, Premises Liability / Slip and Fall, Product Liability, Dog Bites, Workers’ Compensation & Work Related Injuries

When looking for an experienced Atlanta lawyer for Business / Corporate / Commercial Real Estate matters; when faced with Business Disputes, Non-Compete matters, Overtime Wage issues; or, when dealing with New Loans, Loan Workouts, or Foreclosure, call or email Battleson Law and we will provide a free consultation to see if we are the best option for your situation.
