Bradley O. Cebeci

Brad is an experienced commercial litigator who has focused his practice on payments law and ecommerce for 20+ years.

Brad routinely represents high risk merchants in high stakes disputes with acquiring banks and their third party agents – through informal advocacy (where possible) and aggressive litigation (where necessary) – to address improper billing, deficient reporting, early termination fee assessments, and excessive reserves withholding, as well as outright fraud and theft; and has recovered tens of millions of dollars in wrongly seized merchant funds for his clients. Brad has also helped countless merchants to get off MATCH; and handled numerous six and seven figure residual disputes for sales agents against ISOs, and ISOs against banks. In addition, Brad has extensive experience counseling acquirers, payfacs, gateways, ISOs, independent software vendors, sales agents, and merchants regarding card brand and regulatory compliance issues.

Brad also represents individuals and entities in a wide range of complex business matters outside the payments space, including partnership disputes and dissolutions, shareholder derivative actions, unfair competition claims, and intellectual property disputes involving trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.

Online marketers turn to Brad to protect their brands and enforce their marks, ensure their compliance with consumer protection laws, pursue indemnity against rogue affiliates, resolve their affiliate marketing disputes, and defend them against private plaintiff TCPA claims, and civil investigations and enforcement actions by the Federal Trade Commission, Department of Justice, and state attorneys general.

Brad is a member of the California bar, and is licensed to practice in the state and federal courts of California. He also routinely works with trusted local counsel to represent clients in arbitrations, state court actions and federal district court actions throughout the United States, including Ohio, Texas, Nevada, Washington, Arizona, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Brad is a fluent Spanish speaker.
