The California offices of Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, located in San Francisco and Los Angeles, work seamlessly together to help companies balance their compliance obligations with the opportunities and challenges presented by California’s dynamic and competitive business environment. Established in 2008, our San Francisco office is an integral part of our California presence. Our California lawyers work closely with firm lawyers across the nation and the globe to help manage California clients’ issues outside the state, as well as to handle matters in California for national and global clients.

Although California serves as an incubator for trends within the United States and across the globe, its rigorous regulatory climate can be especially challenging for businesses. Relying on our thorough knowledge of California-specific and federal regulations, we deftly assist companies in navigating the ever-changing demands on industry doing business in California.

Ranging from environmental, labor & employment, cybersecurity, insurance coverage, to pro bono matters, our California litigators have worked on landmark cases in headline-grabbing lawsuits and won precedent-setting victories for clients, earning recognition by The American Lawyer as a Finalist in its 2022 California Litigation Department of the Year competition.

Our California offices provide a full range of services in the areas of complex litigation, environmental health and safety law, energy and infrastructure, insurance coverage, labor and employment, and real estate transactions for Fortune 100 and other major companies in California and around the world. We advise companies in a broad range of industries including oil and gas, renewable energy, technology, financial services, retail and consumer products, and real estate investment, and finance.

Our cross-disciplinary litigators have handled significant business and class action consumer claims ranging from toxic tort to strict liability, negligence and deceptive trade practices for major technology companies, consumer product manufacturers, financial institutions, and pharmaceutical companies. We have also guided clients through distressed transactions, distressed debt and claims trading, collection and workouts, bankruptcy, creditors’ rights, receivership, and commercial litigation.

In the area of environment, health, and safety law, our practice covers the full range of state, local, and federal environmental and safety laws applicable to California operations and to products sold in California. We work with chemical, oil and gas, renewable energy, food processing, pipeline, cement, mining and manufacturing industries; utilities; trade associations; retail and consumer products companies; and municipalities.

Hunton Andrews Kurth’s energy and infrastructure team in California focuses on project finance, corporate finance, and mergers and acquisitions. Consistently recognized by Chambers and other legal and industry publications as one of the top law firms for renewable energy transactions, the team assists clients with the development, financing and acquisition or sale of energy projects, and related transactions, including corporate clean power initiatives.

In the area of insurance coverage, our California lawyers have a nationwide practice, frequently appearing in court at both the trial and appellate levels, trying some of the largest insurance and mass tort and class action cases in the country to jury, and securing landmark insurance decisions in the California Supreme Court, the 9th Circuit and numerous courts of appeal. The practice covers the gamut of insurance issues, including coverage for major property damage and business interruption losses, advertising-related liabilities, errors and omissions claims, director and officer claims, product liability claims, employment liability, fiduciary liability such as ERISA, False Claims Act liabilities, theft and other criminal-related claims, environmental and mass tort matters, and personal injury claims such as right to privacy and false imprisonment.

Our California labor and employment lawyers help employers maneuver through the special challenges created by California law, offering experienced, efficient, and strategic representation in virtually all areas of labor and employment law. We are among a small number of lawyers in the country to successfully try complex representative proof class and collective actions to jury verdicts.

In matters of real estate, our California lawyers have substantial experience in representing owners and investors in all aspects of acquiring, leasing, financing and developing office, retail and industrial property. Our experience includes developing industrial and commercial projects on Tribal lands, including advising on issues associated with compliance, construction, Tribal sovereign immunity and Tribal governance.

Our California offices are as dynamic as the cities where they reside. Both offices are led by women—Shannon S. Broome in San Francisco and Ann Marie Mortimer in Los Angeles—both named several times by the Daily Journal to its list of the Top 100 Lawyers in California. We are active in significant pro bono work and our dedication to the community extends to our involvement in local service projects. We want to contribute to the fabric of our community and be a long-term partner in improving the lives of our neighbors.

The San Francisco office participates in the Adopt-a-Family program to help families in need and Robert Half’s annual suit drive for low income job seekers. Our San Francisco office team was also one of the top law firm fundraisers on the west coast for Cycle for Survival, a movement supporting research on treatment of rare cancers.
