As the city’s oldest law firm, O’Melveny helps clients in the Los Angeles area and beyond tackle their most important legal matters and achieve critical strategic goals, whether completing a company’s initial public offering or defending a company in complex, multi-billion dollar litigation.
We counsel clients in areas including white-collar defense and corporate investigations; intellectual property; mergers and acquisitions; capital markets; class actions; and international data privacy and cybersecurity. Political leaders, Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and those in need of pro bono legal assistance are among those who turn to us for guidance on critical legal issues.
When Henry O’Melveny founded the firm 130 years ago, Los Angeles was little more than a bustling village on the western edge of the American frontier. Like the city, the firm has grown, and today our Los Angeles team is part of a network of hundreds of lawyers across the US, Asia, and Europe who work together to help our clients succeed in an increasingly complex global economy.
