About Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen & Shapiro LLP

Founded in 1988 in Los Angeles, Glaser Weil has established a reputation as a go-to litigation firm for corporations, tech companies, startups, celebrities and investment firms, among other clients. The firm’s practice areas include art, construction, entertainment, environmental and energy, litigation, government and regulatory, and tax, among many others. The litigation department has gotten a lot of acclaim, with attorneys being named to the “Irish Legal 100” and “Super Lawyers,” while Chambers and Partners ranked Glaser Weil as a frontrunner in the Media and Entertainment Litigation throughout the state of California.

The majority of the Glaser Weil’s attorneys have spent their entire careers working together – a trait that has created the collaborative style that works well with the firm’s low partner to associate ratio. Because of this, the firm has retained numerous clients and continues to attract more, particularly due to their “lean-and-mean” approach to staffing cases. The team’s efficiency is mirrored in their cost-effective practices, which include sending only the essential personnel to dispositions, court hearings or business meetings, and employing economic alternatives such as electronic research, paralegal personnel, video conferencing and other technologies.

The hard work of the firm’s attorneys led to a “highly recommended rating” in Benchmark Litigation’s 2015 edition and 11 attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion in  2015 Best Lawyers in America®. In 2015, eighteen lawyers were included in the “Super Lawyers Business Edition.”
