Glaser Weil LLP, based in Los Angeles, is one of the country’s premier full-service law firms. Advising a roster of diverse, selective clients – from start-ups and large global corporations to high-profile entertainers and other well-known individuals – Glaser Weil represents clients’ interests with an unprecedented level of dedication and commitment.

Glaser Weil’s litigation department cemented its reputation as a premier litigation powerhouse by earning victory after victory for its clients. The Firm constantly strives to maximize its clients’ business and personal opportunities, overcoming their challenges and problems, and always keeping them far ahead of the curve.

Glaser Weil’s litigators appear in state and federal court, in Delaware Chancery Court, in arbitrations and before administrative and other governmental tribunals. While many law firms boast a litigation department comprised of “trial lawyers,” Glaser Weil’s litigators — from the newly minted to the most veteran and acclaimed — actually try cases.

Certain litigation matters require that a case is resolved at trial. In other litigation matters, Glaser Weil attorneys work closely with their clients to avoid protracted litigation in court. In these circumstances, the Firm has demonstrated ingenuity and creativity in resolving its clients’ issues through summary disposition and alternative dispute resolution. The Firm handles all aspects of litigation, including corporate investigations and litigation assessments all the way through an appeal.

In addition to Benchmark Litigation, Glaser Weil’s lawyers have been recognized by Chambers and PartnersLaw360, the Los Angeles Business Journal, the Daily Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers, among others.

Glaser Weil’s reputation as a powerhouse extends far beyond its litigation department. Attorneys across the Firm routinely achieve significant success for their clients, including in practice areas such as real estate and construction, intellectual property, entertainment, corporate, environmental and energy, government and regulatory, tax and estate planning.

A new practice group, the Crisis Management & Response Practice Group, reflects a strategic alliance with Freeh Sporkin & Sullivan, LLP (“FSS”) and Freeh Group International Solutions, LLC (“FGIS”) that is capable of deploying vast resources and experience as a combined legal and investigative powerhouse focused on risk management, investigations, and comprehensive representation in highly complex and strategic matters.

The alliance includes Louis J. Freeh, who leads FSS and FGIS, served as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was a federal judge in the Southern District of New York, as well as an Assistant United States Attorney in that District, and Glaser Weil, who Benchmark Litigation ranks as “Highly Recommended” – one of only 25 law firms in California to earn this elite status.

The legal, regulatory and social media landscapes have evolved over the past several years and penalties for corporate non-compliance or litigation missteps can be very severe. This unique alliance provides a complete package of consultative, investigative and litigation services to help promote and ensure client compliance as well as rapid response, including full-scale litigation, when crisis erupts.

The strategic alliance provides clients with one-stop access to some of the country’s top lawyers and investigators, who can work together to provide counsel and representation regarding White Collar crime, securities and environmental litigation, and cyber security and data protection.

  • Fred Heather, co-chair of the Group and a former Assistant United States Attorney with over 30 years of practice defending corporations and their executives in complex civil and White Collar cases.
  • Garland A. Kelley, co-chair of the Group and a securities litigator with more than 25 years of experience consulting with, and litigating for, exceptional clients around the world.
  • Lawrence Hadley, co-chair of the Group and an intellectual property attorney with more than 25 years of experience in high-stakes IP matters and Chair of Glaser Weil’s Intellectual Property Department.
  • Benjamin F. Scotti, who has worked alongside Mr. Freeh for over 10 years on a number of high profile domestic and international engagements, leads the Freeh Group’s involvement in the alliance.
