LA Firm Merges with Bingham McCutchen

Bingham McCutchen is beefing up its Los Angeles litigation practice by combining with Alschuler Grossman, a 40-lawyer litigation boutique.

The merger is Bingham’s eighth since 1997, a press release (PDF) says. Alschuler Grossman has experience in business disputes, securities class actions and accountant liability cases.

In 1999, Alschuler, obtained a defense jury verdict for Arthur Andersen in a $1.3 billion class action securities lawsuit filed in Arizona state court. A hat tip to the Wall Street Journal’s Law Blog, which posted the news.
