Our Firm

About Greenberg Glusker

Fifty-five years ago, our founders understood that providing excellent legal service and forging strong client relationships would be at the core of their success.

Fifty-five years of dedication to that philosophy have proven them right.

Consistent, full-service, results-oriented lawyering is what distinguished Greenberg Glusker over 50 years ago and it is what distinguishes us today.

We honor the foresight of our founders who understood that solid, ethical, and effective representation leads to satisfied clients.

That's what makes us The Counsel You Keep.®

Community Involvement

Greenberg Glusker has played a significant supporting role within the Los Angeles community for over 50 years.  In addition to representing some of Southern California's top and up-and-coming talent and companies, we have been active participants in some of the City’s great art institutions, community-based organizations and non-profit initiatives, including:

Many of our attorneys help to further the cause of various Los Angeles-based organizations through their volunteer service as board legal advisors.  In fact, one of our founding members, Arthur Greenberg, has established a personal reputation for cultivating and supporting the Los Angeles art communities as a founding member of both the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).  Mr. Greenberg is also a member of the Board of Governors for the Music Center of Los Angeles.
