About Atkinson Andelson Loya Ruud & Romo

We represent both private and public sector clients, with emphasis in the areas of employment, labor, construction, education, real estate, general business and business litigation, corporate, taxation, bankruptcy, and immigration. Through decades of dedicated commitment to high quality legal work and providing consistently practical management solutions to our clients, AALRR has earned a reputation as one of California’s leading law firms.
Diversity is part of our DNA — two of our five founding partners are Latino, and since the firm’s inception in 1979, we have consistently sought out talented, diverse attorneys to join our team. We remain committed to ensuring that the firm’s attorneys reflect the diversity of communities in which we practice and the clients we serve. The firm understands that one of the most powerful aspects of diversity is to harness the wide range of experiences, viewpoints, and perspectives that diverse attorneys bring to the table. Our focus on diversity and inclusion is predicated on the fact that regardless of the basis for ...our differences, it is those differences that make us more insightful, more creative, more empathetic, more understanding, and ultimately make us better, stronger lawyers and enrich our practice of law. The diversity of our workforce is reflective of our client base, which consists of both public sector clients — including cities and school districts — with diverse management teams and populations of students, communities and constituencies, as well as private-sector clients, who understand that diversity is key to driving innovation and retaining top talent.
We consistently garner recognition for our efforts around diversity. In 2019, we were named one of Law360’s Best Law Firms for Women in its annual Glass Ceiling Report. We also received the National Diversity Excellence Award from Associated Builders and Contractors for the fifth time. In 2018, we received the inaugural California Lawyers Association’s Law Firm Diversity Award. We were also named Best Firm in the Nation for minority equity partners for the second year in a row by Law360—and eighth in the nation for minority attorneys in general. In 2017, we were honored to receive the California Minority Counsel Program’s (CMCP) prestigious Drucilla Stender Ramey Majority-Owned Law Firm Award.
