Bankruptcy Firm Stutman Treister Moving to Century City


By DON PARRET, Staff Writer


Stutman Treister & Glatt, a business bankruptcy law firm and specialist of financial turnarounds for troubled companies, is relocating its Mid-Wilshire office to Century City.

Robert Greenfield, chair of the firm’s executive committee, said yesterday that the 32-lawyer firm has been “toying around” with the idea of moving west for a number of years.

“Most of our attorneys live on the Westside,” Greenfield said. “We conducted an extensive search and found the Century City office an ideal location.”

Stutman Treister signed a 10-year, $9-million lease and will occupy nearly 26,000 square feet of space on the 12th floor of the 20-story 1901 Avenue of the Stars building, which was built in 1968 and recently renovated.

The firm, which started its practice at 639 S. Spring St. in 1948, currently occupies the entire ninth floor at the Wilshire Serrano Building at 3699 Wilshire Blvd.

It has been in the Mid-Wilshire area for nearly 30 years.

Stutman Treister, which Greenfield says is one of the largest boutique firms in bankruptcy law in the nation, has represented bankruptcy cases and reorganizations such as Daewoo Motors, the Los Angeles law firm of Lyon & Lyon, Southern California Edison, Edwards Cinema and Orange County.

The firm, founded in 1948, plans to move in to its new office on July 1.
