RBGG has been recognized for professional excellence in the 2014 Best Law Firms survey published by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers.  The firm was placed in the first tier in San Francisco in both Commercial Litigation and Appellate Practice.

As Best Lawyers noted in a 2013 write-up about the firm:

“Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld is a unique law firm—and not only because it has a reputation for attracting some of the best legal talent in the industry. Over the past 22 years, the firm has built its practice on a unique blend of public interest and complex commercial litigation, specializing in matters involving civil rights, First Amendment, class actions, employment law, antitrust and intellectual property.

In the arena of prisoners’ rights, the firm’s attorneys recently won a landmark decision in the United States Supreme Court requiring a dramatic reduction in California’s prison overcrowding in order to overhaul mental health and medical care for the state’s prisoners. The firm also won a major case in the California Supreme Court on behalf of retired public employees denied promised health care benefits, and a cutting edge case under the California Voting Rights Act on behalf of Latino citizens of Compton.

‘We feel very fortunate to be able to work on high profile cases that move and shape public policy,’ says partner Michael Bien.

But that’s not to say the 17-attorney firm isn’t just as dedicated in the commercial arena as well. The firm recently won a major patent/legal malpractice/fraud case in the Federal Circuit and successfully represented a local high tech company in major trade secrets litigation.

‘We’re able to take on sophisticated issues and resolve disputes in state, federal and appellate courts for a broad range of clients,’ says senior partner Sanford Jay Rosen.”
