Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 06, 2013
An article in the Los Angeles Business Journal recently discussed growth that has been occurring over the past year at Los Angeles business law firm Poole & Shaffery, LLP. According to the business news publication, the firm recently hired a new partner, Hunt Braly, who is expected to help the firm expand its work in the areas of land-use and governmental affairs. The Los Angeles Business Journal noted that Poole & Shaffery also opened an additional office in Walnut Creek, Calif. last year—another sign of the firm’s expansion.
The firm’s growth was discussed in an article that covered multiple new developments in the Los Angeles-area’s legal arena. The article was titled “Toyota Acceleration Claims Lead to Job Break,” and the section that highlighted Poole & Shaffery’s expansion efforts was titled “Growing Santa Clarita Firm.” (One of the firm’s offices is located in the city of Santa Clarita.)
In the business journal’s article, Managing Partner John Shaffery stated that Poole & Shaffery’s lawyers have been increasingly working on cases in which they need to determine how to deal with regulations. This is where Attorney Hunt is expected to make a difference. According to the firm’s website, Mr. Braly has a strong track record when it comes to assisting clients who have issues with government entities and who need help getting land use approvals. The new partner how heads the firm’s Land Use and Government Affairs practice groups.
Attorney Braly was quoted in the article saying that he often deals with real estate matters, and that Poole & Shaffery matches well with his legal services since the firm practices real estate law and real estate litigation. Mr. Braly is no stranger to providing legal support for development projects in Santa Clarita, as well as projects in surrounding communities. The lawyer, a registered lobbyist, has a background that involves politics. He has previously served as chief of staff for California State Sen. Ed Davis, and he also previously served as a candidate for the Assembly in the years of 1990 and 1992, as noted by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
The article also included the fact that the Poole & Shaffery’s addition of its Walnut Creek office resulted in the firm now having five offices with a total of 19 lawyers. The other four offices are located in Los Angeles, Santa Clarita, Orange County and San Francisco.
