A California Powerhouse

Our commitment to being One City, One Firm drives our strong sense of identity, enhancing collegiality, collaboration, cross-selling and client service. Most of all, Greenberg Glusker enjoys strong brand recognition in Southern California. Within our key client industry sectors, our reputation is global.

Lateral success and retention are critical, and every hire is meaningful to us. Greenberg Glusker competes against larger regional, national, and international practices on sophisticated matters for our elite clientele. The firm is growing in its primary areas of practice and is looking to bring on attorneys who are the best in their fields, as well as those who live the values of our firm. 


Whether joining us from an AmLaw 100 or a boutique law firm, lateral partners will truly appreciate the advantages of the full-service practice at Greenberg Glusker. We find that for these partners, the transition is generally seamless for not only themselves but their clients.

“Making a lateral move after nearly 26 years with one firm wasn’t an easy decision,” said Sky Moore, who joined the firm in 2017. “However, the lateral integration team at Greenberg Glusker made it easy to not only move my clients in a seamless approach, but provided a smooth transition for my entire team who joined me. We were opening files and closing deals within the first few days of our arrival.”

After a 32-year practice at Loeb & Loeb and five years in a boutique entertainment litigation firm he co-founded, Doug Mirell says he welcomed the move to Greenberg Glusker in 2018. Attributes that attracted Doug were the quality of the firm’s clients, the diverse and full-service nature of the firm’s work, and the opportunities for synergistic relationships among the firm’s attorneys.

Candidate Process

Each lateral decision is made on a case-by-case basis, weighing the needs of our client base against the candidate's qualifications as well as the business they will bring. Although a majority of our lateral attorneys have roots in California, the firm does consider candidates who may need to pass the California Bar.

Growing Your Business

Greenberg Glusker is committed to supporting all attorneys in their marketing, public relations, and business development efforts. We provide sophisticated platforms for individual and practice area marketing plans and tactics. We offer business development and media training, as well as experienced, dedicated in-house marketing professionals and outside consultants. The firm also sponsors numerous local and national networking associations and is a member of two prominent law firm networks.

Community Involvement

As a firm and as individuals, we value and understand the importance of giving back to the communities in which we live and practice. Greenberg Glusker actively encourages attorney participation in pro-bono cases and nonprofit and charitable organizations in an effort to better our community.

The firm’s reputation for supporting organizations such as the ACLU is what drew Doug Mirell, an attorney renowned for his commitment to the defense of the First Amendment, to the firm in early 2018:

“I have long admired Greenberg Glusker’s commitment to Los Angeles’ leading social justice organizations,” said Doug. “Through its support of organizations such as the ACLU of Southern California, Public Counsel and Bet Tzedek – to name just a few – the firm has built a preeminent reputation for helping ensure equal access to justice. When it came time to move my practice, Greenberg Glusker was a firm where I knew both my practice and my clients would feel at home.”

We are always looking to hire new attorneys that would fit well with or expand our practice areas.  We would consider individual attorney candidates as well as groups. Please contact our Lateral Recruiting Hiring Partners for more information.
