Our practice encompasses a full range of legal services, including corporate and transactional, insurance regulatory, litigation and reinsurance. Our attorneys have a well-earned reputation for handling all types of matters within these practice areas. Industry specialization, combined with our depth of experience, is an important reason why Barger & Wolen LLP has emerged as a leader in the legal field.
Barger & Wolen’s attorneys are well respected by clients, courts and adversaries alike. Richards D. Barger, founding member of the firm, is a former Insurance Commissioner, appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1968. Since the inception of the firm in 1976, under Mr. Barger’s leadership, the firm has grown to over 75 attorneys, with offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Newport Beach, New York and London. Our clients span the world, and trust Barger & Wolen to represent their interests with integrity.
Another key to the firm’s success is its commitment to personal service. As a mid-size law firm, we can provide our clients with individual attention, and yet we are able and prepared to handle the most complex of matters. We staff each matter to maximize results and minimize cost. We are dedicated to providing clients with solutions that best fit their goals.
In 2010, the firm received a first-tier ranking by U.S. News and Best Lawyers® for our Nationwide Insurance practice, as well as our regional practice in Los Angeles. In addition, partners Kent R. Keller and Royal F. Oakes are listed for their work in Insurance Law. This recognition validates, for us, that a mid-sized firm can provide incredible legal services, while maintaining the competitive price structure the insurance industry seeks.
Our firm is also committed to the interests of clients in several other ways. Whether called upon to author books, articles and treatises, or to speak at national and local conferences, or at the home office of our clients, Barger & Wolen’s attorneys have devoted countless hours to educate, train and assist clients to meet the needs of their industry.
Barger & Wolen regularly attracts top students from the finest law schools in the country, and we offer an attractive, competitive and innovative place to work. We embrace challenge, a spirit that has permeated the firm since it first opened its doors.
