Los Angeles serves as a strategic operations base for many of Cozen O’Connor’s domestic and international clients. Opened in 1995, our Los Angeles office is located in the center of downtown, in close proximity to federal and state courts. Our talented litigators are licensed in California and several surrounding states and are equipped to handle complex litigation throughout the region.
Cozen O’Connor’s Los Angeles office provides a full range of services for a broad range of matters, including complex commercial litigation, intellectual property, antitrust, subrogation, prosecution of catastrophic wildland fires, complicated insurance coverage and bad faith matters, trade secrets, cyber-security, real estate, bankruptcy, employment disputes and litigation, and the defense of product liability, toxic tort, class action, and construction cases.
In addition to their commitment to professional excellence and outstanding client service, Cozen O’Connor’s attorneys and professional staff are dedicated to giving back to their community. Our Los Angeles office routinely volunteers at local homeless shelters and food banks, hosts meals for families at the Ronald McDonald House and participates in other fundraising events for those in need. Our attorneys also use their combined years of legal experience to provide pro bono legal assistance in partnership with Public Counsel, Bet Tzedek and other organizations in areas such as veterans’ law, immigration, guardianship, adoption, and Holocaust reparations.
