Coblentz is one of only six firms named to the Law360 California Powerhouse list in 2017. Law360 notes that "The Golden State is a global hub for innovators, serving as headquarters for companies on the cutting edge of sectors like technology, life sciences, media and entertainment, and private equity and venture capitalism, but the firms that shined brightest in 2017 were both creative and resilient, handling legal challenges for so-called disruptors as well as for the more staid, established companies, landing them among Law360's 2017 California Powerhouses."
In an interview with managing partners Danna Kozerski, Jeff Knowles, and Alan Gennis, the publication notes that "When California sports teams with championship arena dreams need legal advice on how to knock it out of the park on their new park, they know to call Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass LLP," mentioning the firm's real estate, litigation and corporate work for major sports franchises the San Francisco Giants, San Francisco 49ers, and Los Angeles Clippers.
Also noted is Coblentz's rich history in the music industry, with comments on the firm's work for Sony Music Entertainment and history representing legendary concert promoter Bill Graham, as well as the firm's expansion into Wine Country with our 2016 opening of a new major office in Napa Valley with a focus on wine, food, beverage, real estate development and hospitality. Law360 writes that "Coblentz’s future looks Californian."
