Tim Horton’s practice is focused on protecting the interests of business enterprises of all sizes—and the people who own and run them—in high-stakes controversies with their peers, competitors, investors, and the government. Tim advises clients on compliance issues to manage risk, conducts investigations for them when potential trouble arises, and represents clients in state and federal courts in a broad range of controversies. Tim represents his clients in business litigation, corporate governance disputes, trade secret and employment issues, as well as matters involving allegations of securities violations, breaches of fiduciary duty, financial and accounting fraud and insider trading.
Reflecting the ever-growing importance of technology and a global economy, Tim’s clients are often leaders in innovation and include overseas companies that are doing business in, or are listed in, the United States. Tim works with these clients to protect their businesses and the value they have built, including safeguarding their intellectual property rights from competitors and other outsiders—both prospectively with advance planning and well-crafted contracts, as well as through effective litigation when conflict arises. Tim represents clients across industries including technology development, manufacturing, energy, pharmaceuticals, consumer products, and professional services.
Tim earned his Juris Doctor from the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law. He holds a double Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History from the University of California, San Diego.
Before founding his own firm, Tim practiced for more than 15 years with two prominent international law firms. Tim is admitted to practice in all California state courts, and each of the federal U.S. District Courts of California.
