Seasoned California business attorney Richard Burt will help guide lawyers in a future edition of a widely used handbook.

Burt has been selected by Continuing Education of the Bar to revise part of “Forming and Operating California Limited Liability Companies,” a practice guide used by California lawyers.

“It’s truly an important publication to anyone practicing business law in the state,” Burt said. “The revisions will address the effect of the new LLC act that will take effect in California.”

Continuing Education of the Bar is a non-profit joint venture between the University of California and the State Bar of California and is one of the leading publishers of handbooks for California lawyers.

Burt has also been requested to contribute to Business Law News, a publication of the Business Law Section of the State Bar of California., as well as b-bulletins sent out to members of the section. In 2013, Burt’s articles entitled “Excluding Assets from Personal Guaranties” and “AREI II Cases” on third-party liability fraud were published by the Corporations Committee of the Business Law Section of the State Bar.

Burt began his legal career four decades ago, when he started work at the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington, D.C., just down the road from his alma mater George Washington University.

Now an attorney rated “AV” “Preeminent” by Martindale-Hubbell, Burt heads his own law firm that serves the communities of the city of San Jose and of other cities in Santa Clara County, California as well as the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area. In the four intervening decades, Mr. Burt has garnered extensive legal experience at firms of various sizes: international commercial giant Wilmer Hale; the mid-sized Northern California firm Berliner Cohen; and, most recently, in practice for himself, after founding his own firm in 1984.

For Burt, it’s an honor serving as a vice-chair of judicial developments for the Corporations Committee of the Business Law Section of the State Bar of California. His service on the Corporations Committee and also previously on the Partnerships and LLC Committee has helped him leverage his broad experience to provide boutique legal services in business matters and real estate matters to clients throughout California (as well as to out-of-state clients). He prides himself on providing to each client service of big-firm quality coupled with small-firm attentiveness. Whether the client is a large business enterprise, an entrepreneur just starting a business, or a professional in private practice, his firm has the ability to help.

Burt serves the community through philanthropic and educational business activities. He’s been published in Business Law News and other State Bar publications. He’s also been a featured speaker at the CEB seminars on Organizing California Limited Liability Companies and on Buy-Sell Agreements, webinars for the State Bar of California, and in-person talks at the Santa Clara County Bar Association.
