Locke Lord's Los Angeles office, led by Managing Partner Nina Huerta, is a full-service office focusing on litigation, general commercial transactions and corporate representation and insurance regulatory matters.
Our lawyers have litigated cases in a variety of areas, including antitrust, financial services, employment, oil and gas, intellectual property, class action defense, environmental, product liability, toxic torts, insurance coverage, excess and reinsurance matters, aviation and aerospace liability, unfair business competition and professional liability.
Our corporate lawyers have assisted domestic and international clients with the organization and reorganization of companies, mergers and acquisitions, private and public financings, asset-backed securitization transactions, governance issues, licensing and intellectual property matters, real estate investment, development and finance and employment counseling. The Los Angeles office has significant experience representing oil and gas, industrial and local government clients in environmental litigation, transactional and regulatory matters. In addition, our lawyers structure, negotiate, document and close health industry acquisitions and dispositions, as well as assist clients with complex healthcare regulatory challenges and compliance issues.
Lawyers in our Los Angeles office play a vital role in the community in which they live and work. This includes sitting on local boards - and working with community-based programs - supporting education, health and welfare, arts, children's and faith-based organizations. The Firm's work with disadvantaged high-school students at Verbum Dei High School in Watts was recently noted in a front-page Los Angeles Times story.
