McGuireWoods continued its West Coast expansion in 2015 with the opening of its downtown Los Angeles office. Today, it complements our other Golden State locations in Century City and San Francisco. The full-service California team — backed by a firm with 1,100 lawyers in 21 offices worldwide — represents clients in banking and finance, restructuring and insolvency, commercial real estate, regulatory and criminal investigations, financial institutions litigation, class action litigation, environmental litigation and product liability litigation, among other areas.
The office includes banking and finance lawyers ranked nationally in Chambers USA, the definitive guide to leading lawyers, as well as nationally recognized environmental and class action litigators.
Our lawyers have years of experience representing banks, institutional lenders, commercial finance companies, hedge funds and private equity firms, to name a few.
The office’s class action litigators have unique skills handling sophisticated disputes. Their combined experience includes antitrust, consumer class actions, mass torts, product liability and commercial disputes. And our downtown Los Angeles lawyers have won precedent-setting trials and appeals in major environmental matters.
In furtherance of McGuireWoods’ commitment to the core value of service to clients and the communities in which we live and work, downtown Los Angeles lawyers and staff serve in leadership roles and volunteer in local organizations such as the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Public Counsel Law Center, Catholic Charities of Los Angeles, Angel’s Flight, the Constitutional Rights Foundation and Junior Achievement.
