“Joining Buchalter offers me an exciting opportunity to take advantage of the firm’s stellar reputation in the corporate legal landscape. I am eager to work with this talented team to deliver comprehensive legal solutions to our clients,” said Rogers.
Beyond his legal practice, Rogers is a leader in the M&A community.
