Our Los Angeles lawyers are at the center of new business initiatives, including renewable energy, new media, real estate finance, and litigation.
Ballard Spahr’s media and entertainment, real estate finance, public finance, and financial services practices are all top-rated nationally. The Los Angeles office is nimble, aggressive, and combines the creativity of a boutique with the strength of a national firm. We have built an office that includes partners from major international law firms and noted boutiques, associates who show vision and a commitment to excellence, and staff who love what they do.
The Los Angeles office is home to the co-leader of our Real Estate Finance Group and is the seat of our Bridge Lending Team. The counsel our real estate finance attorneys provide on loan origination, joint ventures, construction lending, and leasing matters has helped major projects countrywide become reality. On the litigation side, our lawyers represent commercial landlords and shopping center owners, managers, and developers in corporate disputes, and regulatory compliance and tenant bankruptcy matters. In the entertainment area, we represent clients in the film, music, television, online media, and publishing industries. In August 2019, a Media and Entertainment team from Leopold, Petrich & Smith joined the firm, adding additional strength in script-vetting, rights clearances, and copyright litigation.
