Buchalter's Overview

Buchalter is a full-service business law firm that has been teaming with clients for eight decades, providing legal counsel at all stages of their growth and evolution, and helping them meet the many legal challenges and decisions they face. Our clients are engaged in a diverse global economy governed by complex laws and regulations, and they trust us as advisers and business partners because we are involved in their world. They rely on our forward-thinking to help them resolve problems before they arise.

At Buchalter, we practice in that spirit.

Our founding principle-providing our clients with the best business solutions-continues to lead us. We value each client relationship, recognizing that their success is our success. Our overarching goal-getting the best results for the client in a timely manner with sensitivity to cost-has engendered client loyalty, and the firm has grown from that loyalty.

Our lawyers are accessible, resourceful, skillful and adept at responding to change. Our technological capabilities keep case law and rule changes at our fingertips and client communications current, enabling us to create efficient, superior outcomes.

We strongly believe that technology is a tool that furthers the practice of law and have used that belief to develop a cutting edge platform for our firm. We use a meshed (NVPN) network to facilitate work among offices, Cisco VoIP telephony and Video-over-IP conferencing. Sharing documents is seamless through FileSite, which is also utilized to create our Client Extranets. To support our litigation matters, we use Concordance and Opticon, as well as LiveNote and Sanction. Unlike many firms, we have the capacity to process e-Discovery in-house, reducing client costs.

Buchalter lawyers are also active members of the communities in which they live and work. Leadership is a value the founding partners practiced and passed on to the current generation of attorneys. Our lawyers sit on the boards of prominent organizations, teach and lecture frequently. We actively participate in many associations and groups including the Public Law Center, San Francisco Legal Aid Society, Practicing Law Institute, California State Bar Association, the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the LACBA Domestic Violence Project, the Sojourner Center, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Phoenix and many others.

Buchalter is consistently ranked among the leading law firms by Chambers and Partners, Best Lawyers, The Daily Journal and the Los Angeles Business Journal. It is also ranked among the leading firms nationally by American Legal Media and the National Law Journal.

Buchalter's commitment to reflecting and enhancing the rich diversity of the clients and communities in which we practice is more than eight decades strong. The firm's diversity of attorneys and staff provides clients with a greater array of creative talent and alternative thinking, benefiting all.

Federal Court Prohibits Prop 65 Warning on Glyphosate-based Herbicides
Buchalter, June 2020

On June 22, 2020, a US District Court for the Eastern District of California issued a permanent injunction against requiring a Proposition 65 warning on the labels of herbicides containing glyphosate, such as Roundup.  In National Association of Wheat Growers, et al. v. Xavier Beccera, as Attorney General of the State of California, the court had previously issued a temporary injunction on commercial free speech grounds, finding that the Proposition 65 warning was false and misleading given the weight of authority showing that glyphosate is not known to cause cancer...

Buchalter COVID-19 Client Alert: Financial Accommodations for Airport Tenants in Response to COVID-19
Buchalter, June 2020

Airport sponsors and their legal counsel have been forced by the COVID-19 pandemic to exercise judgment and make tough decisions regarding the financial accommodations they will offer their commercial aeronautical tenants to help them weather the current storm.  In many ways, these decisions have mirrored the difficult decisions employers have had to make to pare down their workforces in order to survive in the wake of this public health emergency and the resultant economic downturn.  Airport sponsors are highly motivated to support their valued commercial tenants and to negotiate mutually beneficial financial terms (including rent abatement)...

Buchalter, June 2020

June 25, 2020 - While June is usually a time of celebration for many in the Buchalter community, including our LGBTQ+ and Black colleagues and friends celebrating pride month and Juneteenth, this June brought great challenges in many forms. In reflecting on these challenges and celebrations, we reflect on Buchalter’s own history. Irwin Buchalter founded our Firm in 1933, after being unable to find a law firm that would hire him because of his faith...
