Leaders in Law (Recap)

Letter from the Publisher

Josh Schimmels

Welcome to our eleventh annual special section honoring the leading general counsels and firm-based attorneys in the Los Angeles area for 2021. Considering the fact that the Los Angeles region has long been known for its status as a hub for legal thought leaders and record-setting attorneys, being a standout in that field is particularly impressive.

The Los Angeles Business Journal honored the accomplishments and significant roles that attorneys play in the success of their business enterprises and also recognized accomplishments of leading attorneys in firms within the Los Angeles business community.

Candidates in various categories were recognized for exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership and for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.

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.
