Barnes & Thornburg LLP, Indianapolis’ largest law firm, has opened an office in Los Angeles, continuing its expansion into other major markets.

The office is staffed by five attorneys from the L.A. office of Washington, D.C.-based Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP and will be led by Akin Gump’s former managing partner of its West Coast location.

The move gives Barnes & Thornburg an established California practice with experience in litigation, labor and employment, as well as the entertainment, media and intellectual property practice areas, managing partner Alan Levin said.

“This highly talented and cohesive group of lawyers, who share our cultural values and have a proven track record in building a successful Los Angeles office, offered us a rare opportunity to expand into the Los Angeles market, which has become a strategic priority of the firm,” he said in a prepared statement.

The Los Angeles office, Barnes & Thornburg’s 12th nationwide, follows the firm’s expansion in recent years into Minneapolis, Atlanta and Columbus, Ohio.

Barnes & Thornburg has roughly 226 lawyers in Indianapolis and about 500 nationwide.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
