Letter From the Publisher
Welcome to our seventh annual special supplement honoring LA’s most influential attorneys. The Los Angeles Business Journal Leaders in Law Awards and accompanying special special supplement, is an opportunity for us to celebrate the outstanding work performed by the remarkable individuals and teams of attorneys that form the in-house counsels for our leading businesses here in Los Angeles while also honoring the leading light attorneys at the many terrific law firms in our region.
In the following pages we hope to shed some additional light on some of the premier examples of business law among us today. These are the honorees and finalists we singled out for exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.
Our celebration of these examples of legal excellence took place at our Leaders in Law Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, October 24th at the L.A. Hotel Downtown. The list of prestige finalists – each an example of excellence in their respective fields – made it particularly difficult to arrive at the honorees. We applaud each of the finalists and honorees – all of whom are described in these pages. It should be noted that each of the finalists and honorees featured in these pages has played a key role, not only in the success of their companies or clients, but in the success of the Los Angeles financial community as a whole. So to all the great legal experts profiled in this volume, we say thank you!
We hope you enjoy this special section, which contains some unique insights on what exactly it means to be a leading attorney in today’s business climate.
