Former TroyGould Litigation Attorney Returns to Firm


By a MetNews Staff Writer


TroyGould yesterday announced that litigator Alan Dettelbach has returned to the firm’s Los Angeles office.

Dettelbach was previously a member of the firm from 1988 to 1998, but left to pursue a career in business, serving as chief executive officer to a national post-production editing company.

In 2009, Dettelbach became a legal consultant for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy trustee for a real estate holding company with nearly $1 billion in assets and hundreds of properties across the United States.

The attorney said yesterday that he was “thrilled to rejoin my friends and colleagues at TroyGould,” having “been impressed with the firm’s growth and representation over the years.”

Dettelbach said the firm “is poised for further growth and business excellence,” and that he was “look[ing] forward to bringing that same level of energy, enthusiasm and solution-driven representation to the firm that has been its hallmark for many, many years.”

 Sanford Hillsberg, managing martner of TroyGould, remarked that Dettelbach’s “experience as a business insider will provide an edge for our clients by bringing a unique understanding of how legal strategy and decision-making affects business opportunities.”

Hillsberg noted that the attorney “brings more than 20 years of experience in a wide array of innovative business matters including securities, commercial licensing rights and real estate-related disputes” back to the firm.

Dettelbach attended the University of Pittsburgh and Loyola Law School before joining the State Bar in 1988.
