Oppenheimer was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “Our litigators are simply the best at what they do, and I’m honored to lead this extraordinary group. We’re achieving major triumphs for our clients in numerous jurisdictions, including the Supreme Court, and in all stages of litigation from discovery through trial and to appeal, so it’s an exciting time.”

Chair-elect Brad Butwin was quoted as saying: “In his 34 years at O’Melveny, Randy has always been one of the Firm’s most respected, thoughtful, and eloquent voices and among the Firm’s most successful trial lawyers. He and I are committed to establishing a set of priorities designed to lead our award-winning and very busy Litigation Department to even higher levels of achievement for clients.”

Lazarow was formerly the managing partner of O’Melveny’s Silicon Valley office, as well as a member of the Firm’s Policy Committee, which acts as its board of directors. Lazarow is a leading advisor to technology-focused companies and investors in M&A, public offerings, and private financing transactions, including private equity and venture capital, as a member of the M&A and Capital  Markets Practices. He has been the recipient of numerous accolades during his distinguished career, including appearing four times on Forbes Magazine’s “Midas List” of the technology industry’s Top 100 Dealmakers Worldwide, and being recognized by publications such as Chambers and Partners (USA and Global), Legal 500, Global Counsel, IFLR, and Practical Law Company.
