About Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP

From its Los Angeles base, Allen Matkins has conquered California, opening up offices in San Francisco, San Diego, Century City, and Irvine. With approximately 200 lawyers, the firm is known as a top real estate practice in the Golden State.

Grown in the City of Angels

Allen Matkins has built its empire in the state where residents elect bodybuilders and shrug off earthquakes. Founded in Los Angeles in 1977, Allen Matkins has achieved notable success in corporate and hospitality work, as well as in the securities, employment, bankruptcy, and tax arenas. The firm has earned accolades from west coast publications like the Los Angeles Business Journal and the San Diego Business Journal. Its real strengths lie, however, in its real estate and litigation practices. The firm's litigation department has focuses in real estate, commercial, financial services, construction, environmental, and labor and employment litigation.

The firm has not only worked with local clients-like representing a public-private partnership to modernize the Los Angeles Air Force Base-but has also secured nationally known clients including Wells Fargo Bank, Sares-Regis Group, AT&T, Black & Decker, Met Life, The Home Depot, Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, and Capmark Finance.

Buying and Selling Up the California Coast

Real estate is where the firm shines-Allen Matkins has ranked the No. 1 real estate law firm in California for a decade, according to Chambers & Partners. California Real Estate Journal has also placed Allen Matkins on the top of its real estate firm list, which was based on the number of real estate attorneys in each outfit. The firm's real estate practice handles all aspects of the real estate world, including litigation over construction, land use, landlord tenant, and condemnation issues.

And handling the real estate transactions of the present is not enough for the firm; Allen Matkins seeks to predict the future. The firm has developed a partnership with UCLA Anderson Forecast, an organization of economists who attempt to posit unbiased forecasts for California's economy and the nation's. Allen Matkins and the Anderson Forecast put out commercial real estate forecasts, covering rental and vacancy rates.
