Arthur N. Greenberg

Partner Emeritus
Fax 310-201-2302


Founding partner Arthur N. Greenberg views his more than 60 years of  law practice as “a complete professional life and an intellectual, emotional and personal challenge beyond my highest expectations. I have solved many, many problems for clients who have expressed their appreciation and gratitude and I have had the great pleasure watching our firm, which started with three lawyers, grow and prosper.”

In Court, In the Spotlight

From the time of his graduation in the first class of UCLA Law School, Arthur's practice included complex litigation and multi-million dollar business transactions over decades involving high-stake legal matters and legal firsts.  Selected by his peers, Mr. Greenberg is included in the book “Best Lawyers in America.” He feels too young to have been referred to as a “Legend” in a recent edition of the publication “Super Lawyers of Southern California,” a term frequently used by others to describe him.

Defining a Firm, Shaping Southern California

As Arthur’s many legal achievements shaped the firm and Southern California’s evolving legal landscape, he simultaneously established a strong philanthropic tradition at the firm. This was an expression of both a professional obligation and a personal belief  that as lawyers, all of us are required to help maintain the philanthropic and cultural life of our community. As such, Arthur became a contributor to, and officer and director of, numerous organizations serving the community, the state and the nation. In addition, he has been joined in such organizations by other members of the firm.

Arthur continues his active role as the firm’s legal lion and is a regular guiding presence to his colleagues. His vision for the firm remains as it was at its founding in 1959. He says, “I want Greenberg Glusker to be known as dedicated to achieving our clients’ goals in an honorable, ethical fashion and as a firm of lawyers with the highest skills, intelligence and integrity.”
