Justin Bieber
's lawyer is clocking more hours than a 7-Eleven -- the singer just settled a lawsuit with his pissed off ex-bodyguard ... after the man sued him for assault and battery.

As we reported, Moshe Benabou -- an ex-Israeli soldier who worked as Bieber's bodyguard from 2011- 2012 -- claimed Bieber berated him and punched him in the chest multiple times after a concert ... because Bieber didn't like the way Benabou handled one of his friends.

Benabou sued for assault and battery -- as well as for more than $420,000 in unpaid overtime -- demanding unspecified damages.

Now, Justin has settled up -- which is definitely a good thing considering his hectic legal schedule these days -- 3 outstanding criminal investigations in 2 countries.

Justin Bieber ... the hits just keep on coming.
