Nixon Peabody Names New Managing Partner in Los Angeles

Seth Levy to Lead Next Generation of Legal Talent

October 7, 2013 - Los Angeles, CA - With an eye toward investing in the future of our firm, Nixon Peabody LLP announces Seth Levy will serve as managing partner of the Los Angeles office. Levy will lead this office with a combined 55 attorneys and staff in a high-priority market for our firm’s growth.

"Seth is a smart, enthusiastic, and strategic partner. He has built a thriving intellectual property practice," said Andrew I. Glincher, Nixon Peabody CEO and managing partner. "Seth is a great example of a future-focused leader and I’m excited to see him put his leadership talents to work."

In addition to his role as managing partner of the Los Angeles office, Levy’s practice focuses on intellectual property protection, strategy and disputes, particularly in life sciences and health care. He also handles a range of technology, clinical research and entertainment transactions, and acts as outside general counsel to emerging growth companies.

"I’m excited to collaborate with my colleagues as we center our efforts on being proactive and predictive to achieve our clients’ future business goals," said Levy. "We are focused on what’s important to our clients now and next as we grow our Los Angeles office." Levy succeeds Rick Jones, who opened the firm’s Los Angeles office with Travis Gibbs in 2005, and has grown it from a small public finance practice to a thriving, full-service office.

"Rick is a gifted leader and mentor who steps down from his role with a strong team well-positioned for a bright future," added Levy. Jones will continue his busy practice representing educational institutions, nonprofit entities, underwriters and technology companies in structuring and executing financings, in matters involving disclosure to prospective investors, in issues relating to governance and on a variety of other business issues.

Active in the community, Levy serves on the boards of various organizations including the It Gets Better Project, the ACLU of Southern California and OneJustice. He has also held numerous leadership positions in the American Health Lawyers Association (vice chair and chair of the Life Sciences Practice Group) and the ABA Young Lawyers Division. He was recognized as one of the "Best LGBT Lawyers Under 40" by the National LGBT Bar Association. Levy graduated from University of Southern California Law School and received his B.S. cum laude from Cornell University.

In addition to the firm’s Los Angeles office, Nixon Peabody has West Coast offices in San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
