Blank Rome LLP today announced the Firm will open an office in Los Angeles, California with five new partners, Lawrence C. Hinkle, Andrew F. Kim, Warren A. Koshofer, Glen A. Rothstein and William S. Small.
In addition to complementing the Firm’s corporate and commercial litigation, dispute resolution, product liability, toxic tort defense, environmental, insurance coverage, real estate, and labor and employment practices, Blank Rome hopes to use the Los Angeles office to expand their presence in entertainment law and new media.
“California is one of the most dynamic markets in the country. Our Los Angeles office will provide the initial launch for our West Coast growth strategy, as well as natural synergy with our growing office in Hong Kong, as we continue to build our national and international platform,” noted Carl M. Buchholz, Managing Partner and CEO. “Blank Rome is already serving more than 200 clients with a California presence, and we are pleased to welcome this team of exceptional lawyers to Blank Rome. Their reputations and experience will add to the depth and breadth of our well-established national litigation and real estate practices, providing additional value and service to our clients across the Firm.”
