Lewitt Hackman will be adding four attorneys to its roster from fellow Encino law firm, Goldfarb Sturman & Averbach, on Sept. 1, following GSA's closing at the end of this month.
After 61 years of business, GSA will be closing its doors on Aug. 31. Partners Zane Averbach, Mark Phillips and Steven Feldman will join the firm as shareholders, and Alex Hemmelgarn will be added as an associate, the firm said.
