Brent Reinke to Lead Crosby Heafey’s New Westlake Village Office


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Crosby Heafey yesterday announced that Brent Reinke will serve as managing director of the firm’s new Westlake Village office.

Formerly the managing director of Clarke & Trevethick’s Westlake office, Reinke will also be a partner in the Crosby firm’s Business Solutions Group.

Crosby Heafey Managing Partner Kurt Peterson said the new office is in a position to capitalize on the growth along the 101 Tech Corridor, which runs from Calabasas to Santa Barbara and right through Westlake Village.

“The area has developed as a home of choice for both Fortune 500 companies and emerging, exciting young companies,” Peterson said.

Reinke’s practice focuses on the mergers and acquisitions, advising emerging growth companies, corporate securities and finance, and the formation and capitalization of start-up businesses.

He currently represents numerous emerging growth companies, ranging from start-ups to corporations to multi-national corporations.

“Brent’s wealth of knowledge, quality of work, and history in the San Fernando Valley and Ventura gives our firm a tremendous foothold in the emerging 101 Tech Corridor,” Peterson said. “During the last five years we have pushed hard to build a statewide corporate and intellectual property practice that compliments our century old, nationally recognized litigation practice. We feel Brent is an important piece of that puzzle.”

Reinke was named as one of the “Emerging Business Leaders in the 101 Tech Corridor” by the San Fernando Valley Business Journal.

He is also the founder and chairman of the Gold Coast Venture Forum, an organization which provides assistance to emerging growth companies located in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.

Reinke has lectured extensively to business owners and professional business groups on various business law topics.

He earned his law degree from Loyola Law School, where he was an American Jurisprudence Award recipient.
