Originally established in 1918 by two young men returning from service in World War I, Bishop, Barry, Drath today is a mid-sized firm representing the interests of private and institutional clients throughout California and other states across the country. The firm is located just across the bay from San Francisco, in Emeryville, California.
The attorneys of Bishop, Barry, Drath offer expertise and competence; the firm has long maintained Martindale-Hubbell’s highest peer rating of A-V. We pride ourselves in a common-sense approach that protects our clients’ interests while keeping costs at manageable levels. Our primary interest has always been, and continues to be, the welfare of our clients. We invite the participation of our clients in the decision-making process, and seek to maintain productive, enduring relationships built on mutual trust and respect.
We seek creative and cost-efficient solutions for our clients and consider the courtroom to be the last resort for resolving disputes. However, where necessary, we will take a case to trial, drawing on our successful representation of clients in hundreds of trials.
We are proud of our history and tradition, and equally proud of what we have to offer today. We invite you to contact us and look forward to assisting you wherever and whenever you need us.
