Buchalter Public Service Scholarship
In 1948, three young California attorneys - Irwin R. Buchalter, Jerry Nemer and Murray Fields - founded a firm to serve the area’s growing, post-war commercial community. As a young and thriving California practice, Buchalter Nemer began by assisting clients in business and finance, and representing them in litigation and insolvency.
As the business community grew, the firm grew along with it, diversifying and expanding to meet new and growing demands. We met the challenges of client growth by expanding the firm’s size and capabilities. We merged with a leading business firm – Gitelson, Cooper, Coyle & Savitch – in 1957, and added intellectual property, labor and employment, real estate and tax to better address the growing complexities of doing business in a growing global business community. Buchalter Nemer Fields & Younger was established in 1979 when former California Attorney General Evelle Younger joined the practice.
In 2005, the firm expanded and deepened its strong regional presence with the acquisition of Arizona-based Anderson Brody Levinson & Weiser, bolstering the firm’s existing strengths in the financial services and real estate sectors. In January 2010, nine attorneys from San Francisco land use and real estate boutique, Ellman Burke Hoffman and Johnson, joined the firm in San Francisco.
Today, from our offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County and Scottsdale, Buchalter Nemer lawyers provide full-service representation to financial institutions, corporations and business entities regionally, nationally and internationally.
The scholarship is funded by law school alumni at Buchalter Nemer.
