Twenty Years and Counting: Michelman & Robinson, LLP Celebrates its Platinum Anniversary

Michelman & Robinson, LLP (“M&R”) is pleased to announce and commemorate the twentieth anniversary of its founding on June 1, 1999.

M&R is a leading midsize law firm known for its powerhouse litigation, transactional and regulatory teams that represent a who’s who of clients in the advertising & digital media, banking & finance, entertainment, hospitality, insurance, retail & apparel and technology spaces, among many others. The firm’s lawyers do so out of headquarters in Los Angeles, offices in Irvine, San Francisco and Chicago and its anchor in New York City.

Over two decades, M&R has realized measured, yet explosive growth, and with that have come tremendous accolades. A small sampling – M&R has been designated a “Best Place to Work” multiple times; its earned repeated recognition by The Legal 500U.S. News & World Report has given the firm’s commercial litigation practice group a Tier 1 ranking; Vault has called it one of the best known and most sought-after midsize law firms in the nation; the Los Angeles Business Journal included M&R in its Top 100 Southern California law firms; and Law360 honored its commitment to minority lawyers.

The recognition comes on the heels of remarkable successes over the years. M&R lawyers have made (and changed) law; have shielded clients from billions of dollars of exposure; have won multi-million dollar verdicts; have closed deal after significant deal; and have otherwise left their mark in the courtroom, in the boardroom and in the lives of the people who’ve counted on us time and time again.

Sanford Michelman, the firm’s co-founder is thrilled to celebrate the milestone. He says, “By nature, I’m rather forward-thinking, but to look back 20 years and remember the day Mark and I launched M&R is really something. We started out with big ideas, ambitious goals and an approach to law and business that was different from the rest, but not much else. Fast forward, and we’ve become a hard hitting, national firm known for our tenacity and unmatched client service excellence – that’s a lot to be proud of.”

What co-founder Mark Robinson is most gratified by is M&R’s work product, “we know our clients’ businesses from A to Z and what it is they want to achieve, and that’s entirely reflected in our work and remarkable track record of wins over the past two decades.”

Adds Dana Kravetz, M&R’s firm managing partner for the last 10 years and Chair of its Hospitality Industry Group, “It’s a great feeling of accomplishment to reflect back on 20 years of growth and successes, but what I’m most excited about are the opportunities to come. In my view, our nuanced understanding of client industries and uncompromising attention to detail means that the sky continues to be the limit for M&R and the extraordinary folks that work here.”
