LOS ANGELES � Bingham McCutchen has acquired about 40 lawyers from Santa Monica, Calif.-based Alschuler Grossman. With the combination, Bingham McCutchen now has 1,000 lawyers worldwide and a sizable litigation group in Los Angeles. Alschuler represents accountants in liability actions and defends businesses against securities class actions and other bet-the-company disputes. In 1999, the firm represented Arthur Andersen in defeating a $1.3 billion class action in Arizona. Currently, the firm’s clients include Grupo Televisa S.A. in its battle with Univision Communications Inc. and Blockbuster Inc. in a patent infringement dispute with Netflix Inc. Other Alschuler lawyers practice in real estate, mergers and acquisitions, securities and intellectual property. Earlier this year, Alschuler lost about 40 lawyers to New York-based Dreier after merger talks broke down with Cooley Godward Kronish of Palo Alto, Calif. The former Alschuler lawyers opened Dreier Stein & Kahan on Jan. 1. Bingham McCutchen has been expanding through several mergers and combinations since 1997. Earlier this year, the firm completed a joint enterprise with Sakai & Mimura, a Tokyo-based law firm with 22 lawyers specializing in restructuring deals. In 2002, Bingham McCutchen � then-Bingham Dana � merged with San Francisco-based McCutchen, Doyle, Brown & Enersen. A year later, the firm merged with Los Angeles-based Riordan & McKinzie, a corporate and private equity firm founded by former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan.
