Pros: work life balance- yes, it's real here
Cons: la office could benefit from female partners
If you want hands on practical experience preparing product liability cases for Fortune 500 clients - that you will have direct contact and interaction with-- B&B is for you. The Los Angeles office (Gardena) serves plenty of high profile car, motorcycle, ATVs and medical device clients - and the firm really is a TRIAL firm. Settlements happen-- but every case is treated like its going to trial and cases are worked up that way. Routinely received cases that a client transferred from other firms to B&B so as to ensure proper trial work up-- a compliment to the quality of B&B's trial talent, attention to detail, reasonable pricing and results. Decent work life balance in terms of billable expectations. Lower pay than firms in downtown LA- but the trade off is the real life you get to enjoy outside of the office. LA office is more of a male culture-- no female partners to my knowledge, but this may have changed. The other offices have a greater female presence in leadership. Enjoyed working there.. left when a client asked me to join them in-house.
