Weintraub Genshlea Chediak Law Corporation and Tobin & Tobin, a professional corporation, jointly announce the merger of their business law and litigation firms. The combined firm will be named Weintraub Genshlea Chediak Tobin & Tobin and will have offices in Sacramento, San Francisco and Los Angeles. With over
60 attorneys, the new firm will continue to focus on corporate, real estate, banking, labor and employment, litigation and dispute resolution, intellectual property, tax, trusts and estate planning and bankruptcy, among other areas.
“Our client relationships are expanding more and more throughout the state, and many of those relationships are in the Bay Area. To better meet our clients’ needs and as part of our strategic expansion plan, we looked for a firm like Tobin & Tobin – one that complements our specialty practice areas,” said Michael Kvarme, Weintraub’s managing shareholder. “Given Tobin’s rich history in San Francisco, which dates back to 1852, and our firm’s strong legal presence in the Sacramento region, this merger greatly enriches both firms. Together, we provide more depth and breadth in our shared practice areas and statewide capabilities.”
“We have long admired the work and culture of Weintraub. We share a vision of value-added, trust-based relationships and are confident that with our combined capabilities and expanded services we will be in an even better position to meet our clients’ needs” said Darrell Sooy, managing partner for Tobin & Tobin.
With headquarters in the California state capitol and offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles, the new firm of Weintraub Genshlea Chediak Tobin & Tobin combines its shared vision and pledges to be an innovative provider of sophisticated legal services to dynamic businesses and business owners, as well as non-profits and individuals with litigation and business needs. The firm will continue its strong support of the communities in which its attorneys live and work.
