We understand that lavish offices in fancy locations do not guarantee results and often inflate overhead and increase costs to both us and our clients. Instead, we believe that prestige and respect comes from doing excellent work and obtaining successful results. Moreover, we pride ourselves in not only achieving our client’s goals but doing so in a cost-efficient manner. The word “Ardent” often describes a person who is intensely enthusiastic, passionate and devoted to a cause or belief. We believe this defines our firm and our dedication to our clients and their business affairs.
Ardent Law Group ® (“Ardent”) is a boutique law firm devoted solely to the needs of businesses. We specialize in matters involving Business Litigation, Corporate/Business Transactions, Franchise, Real Estate Law, Trademark & Copyright, and Labor & Employment Law. Ardent is a multi-cultural law firm with both domestic and international clients ranging from small/medium sized emerging businesses to international conglomerates to fortune 500 corporations. We counsel companies from all over the nation and globally, including international clients in China, Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam.
Our diversity is perhaps our biggest asset as a law firm. With attorneys fluent in such languages as Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese and Tagalog, we have the rare ability to represent and understand a wide range of cultures. Ardent is committed to promoting diversity through its hiring practices, and its involvement in the community. Our lawyers have been actively involved in both national and local associations and organizations including but not limited to the Asian American Association of Orange County (AAOC); Korean American Community Lawyers Association (KCLA); Los Angeles Korean American Bar Association (KABA); Orange County Asian American Bar Association (OCAABA), Orange County Korean American Bar Association (OCKABA); Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association (SCLA); National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA); Chinese Chamber of Commerce; Taiwan American Professionals and Vietnamese American National Gala (VANG). Ardent is proud to be a CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission) Certified Minority Business Enterprise and an equal opportunity employer.
Our desire is not to be all things to all clients. We believe that poor work product often results from a firm that over-extends itself. Ardent focuses only on Business related matters. By keeping this focus, we devote our time in doing what we do best and leave the rest for others. This increases the value of services and quality we provide to our clients. When our clients do need services outside our practice areas, we routinely refer them to our vast database of referrals and contacts within the legal industry, both domestically and internationally. Our clients appreciate this unbiased approach and understand that we are here to help- even when we can’t.
One of the reasons we formed our firm was to free our clients from the standard billable hour when the circumstances make it possible. Besides the standard hourly rate arrangement, we offer a variety of flexible fee structures including contingent fees, fixed fees, mixed contingent and hourly structures and monthly retainer arrangements. We customize each fee arrangement on a case by case basis and tailor each arrangement to our client’s satisfaction.
Ardent was founded by a small group of lawyers who left larger firms because they believed in doing things differently. We believed in creating a streamlined purpose driven practice focused on providing creative, efficient and practical legal counsel in all aspects of our client’s business affairs. In doing so, we are able to bring value to our clients by providing quality legal representation to our clients at cost effective rates. What truly sets apart Ardent from other firms is our ability and desire to develop long lasting relationships with our clients and to protect their interests in a cost effective manner. Although we practice and navigate sophisticated and complex areas of law, we take pride in the fact that our professionals are all pleasant, down-to-earth, and approachable individuals who enjoy their work and value building long lasting client relationships. Many of our clients have become and remain long-time friends of the firm, which we are proud to say do so because they consider us more than just their lawyers but instead well trusted advisers and partners in their businesses.
We proudly serve businesses throughout California and nationwide. Our offices are headquartered in Newport Beach, CA with offices in Los Angeles and Diamond Bar.
