Our Los Angeles office is a growing, thriving presence in the region. Our lawyers are at the center of new business and cultural initiatives here: renewable energy, new media, innovative financing in real estate, FinTech, and high profile litigation. And we have a vision to ensure that the office reflects the vibrant international community that is Los Angeles.
Ballard Spahr brings its top-rated national presence in real estate, public finance, and financial services to Los Angeles. The firm has recruited—and actively continues to recruit—A-list trial lawyers and prominent figures in emerging markets. The office is nimble, aggressive, and combines the creativity of a boutique with the strength of a national firm. We have built an office that includes partners from major law firms and from their own boutiques, associates from many backgrounds who show vision and a commitment to excellence, and staff who love what they do.
Our commercial and financial services trial lawyers represent clients in state, federal, and bankruptcy trial and appellate courts and in arbitral forums in Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, and across the country. Our Marketplace Lending Task Force is led by a Los Angeles litigator and focuses on the representation of FinTech companies and their business partners.
Our real estate litigators defend commercial landlords and shopping center owners, managers, and developers in matters involving corporate disputes, regulatory compliance, and bankruptcy. In the entertainment area, we represent and advise clients in the music, television, film, online media, and publishing industries.
Our corporate attorneys are particularly well-known for their work in the area of renewable energy, including the financing and development of solar projects, and mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and global strategic alliances. Our Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation lawyers advise public and private companies and nonprofits on compliance, the structuring of compensation programs, and risk management issues. The office has a noted corporate receivership practice.
At Ballard Spahr, we believe our clients are best served by innovative solutions that spring from varied viewpoints and perspectives. Los Angeles and firm leadership stand at the forefront of national efforts to promote inclusion in the legal industry.
Pro bono work is a hallmark of the firm and the Los Angeles office prides itself on the reach of its pro bono cases. We have obtained pardons for prisoners under the U.S. Department of Justice’s Clemency Program and have won precedent setting cases, from domestic violence to the use of drones in film projects.
