Dean Zipser Co-Authors Article for OC Lawyer on Starting a New Law Firm

U/Z’s Dean Zipser collaborated with Lei Lei Wang Ekvall on an article that appears in the June 2015 issue of Orange County Lawyer entitled, “Starting a New Orange County-Based Law Firm: Then and Now.”

Both former OCBA Presidents, Dean and Lei Lei were honored to sit down with and get input from notable Orange County firm founders, including Louis J. Knobbe, a founder of the Knobbe Martens firm more than 50 years ago, and his first associate, former OCBA President Don Martens, as well as from Nicole Whyte, who successfully founded Bremer Whyte Brown & O’Meara LLP more than 18 years ago.

As the authors noted, “[t]he end result was a roundtable of sorts, where we each shared ideas and compared and contrasted then and now.“
