BKCG is now one of the Top 50 Law Firms in Orange County

Burkhalter Kessler Goodman and George LLP figured prominently in the Orange County Business Journal's annual legal issue that appeared January 12, 2008. With 20 attorneys in its Irvine office, BKCG ranked No. 48 on the OCBJ's list.

Managing Partner Alton Burkhalter was interviewed about the economic outlook in 2009 in a story entitled "Ask the Experts." He said, "Our firm represents a wide variety of California-based businesses. Our real estate and consumer-based clients are really struggling, but most other businesses seem to be holding up pretty well. For example, our firm had its best year ever in 2008, and heading into 2009 all but one of our practice groups are up. I think businesses like ours, who are diversified and not highly leveraged, will do OK in 2009. For others, they will need to adapt or face another very tough year."

Finally, an advertisement about BKCG's focus on brand protection, business law and litigation appeared on page 34.
