Top 100 Lawyers – 2022 RECAP



Letter from the Publisher

Josh Schimmels


After 11 years, we at the Los Angeles Business Journal decided to restructure our Leaders in Law event. We will now honor our esteemed Los Angeles legal professionals in two different ways moving forward, this Top 100 Lawyers event and a Corporate Counsel Awards event in October.

The 100 lawyers listed throughout this section have demonstrated exceptional legal skill and achievements across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership and contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.

In the following pages we share biographical information on these legal thought leaders and shed some additional light on some of the premier examples of business law practitioners among us today.

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.
