Carlton Fields Has New LA Office Lead

Carlton Fields Has New LA Office Lead

Litigator Steven Weisburd recently took the reins as managing shareholder of the Carlton Fields P.A. office in Century City. 

Weisburd takes on the administrative role as the firm continues to grow its sole West Coast location. He joined the office, which launched in 2014, at the beginning of 2018. 

“It’s been nine years, but we’ve really grown in our presence in the last couple of years,” Weisburd said. “The firm has a big litigation basis and practice, but also a corporate practice. We’ve grown in that department and the real estate department. We’ve got some physical expansion that we’ve committed to. It’s a significant growth period, but really an integrated practice with the national firm.” 

Weisburd takes over from Mark Neubauer, who held the title for the past eight years. 

“Steve is an extraordinary litigator, and he is deeply committed and dedicated to this office and the firm,” Neubauer said in a statement. “I am confident that his leadership will be invaluable to our office, our firm, and our clients.” 

Prior to joining Carlton Fields, Weisburd was a partner at the downtown office of Munger, Tolles & Olson and a partner at the Dechert LLP office in Austin, Texas, where he once served as managing partner. 

Weisburd handles a variety of litigation cases for businesses and entrepreneurs, including class actions, disputes, mass torts and product liability, among others. He hailed the young talent at the local Carlton Fields office, as well as skillful lateral hires in recent years, as a recipe for success as the firm continues to grow. 

“The excitement right now is that we’ve more than doubled our size in the last few years and our commitments are to continue to that growth and expand the California practice,” he said. “The last couple of years, we’ve added a number of lawyers who have really enhanced this office. What’s really exciting for me is that we’ve got this team of younger litigators that are making their own mark.”
