May 18, 2021. Buchalter is pleased to announce the arrival of new Shareholder Artin Betpera, who joins the firm’s Orange County office. Betpera is the newest member of the Litigation and Class Action practice groups.
“I am thrilled to welcome Artin to the Firm,” said Adam Bass, Buchalter President and Chief Executive Officer. “His depth of litigation experience and knowledge about the Telephone Consumer Protection Act is a significant asset in our commitment to providing the highest quality full-service legal services.”
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) is a specific focus of Betpera’s practice. He has successfully defended several high-stakes TCPA class actions in jurisdictions throughout the country. Drawing from this experience, Betpera has helped enterprises across multiple industry sectors effectively mitigate TCPA risk arising out of complex outbound calling and texting operations.
Betpera also has a deep understanding of consumer financial services litigation, having started his career at ground-zero of the 2007 financial crisis. His experience in the broad array of litigation resulting from the crisis led him to manage a significant volume of litigation for some of the country’s largest financial institutions.
“I am so pleased to be joining Buchalter and bringing my experience with the TCPA, and consumer financial services litigation to the Firm” said Betpera. “Providing an enjoyable and seamless client experience has always been a focus of my practice, and I am confident that Buchalter’s impressive full-service capabilities will allow me to grow my practice with this goal at the forefront.”
Betpera is also committed to being a leader in diversity and inclusion. While at his prior firm, Betpera was instrumental in founding HBCU Succeed, an initiative designed to provide students of historically black colleges and universities with high quality professional development programming and meaningful networking opportunities.
