Q&A With Partner Andrew Bedigian


Andrew J. Bedigian was the first attorney hired at Larson in 2016 fresh out of law school, and he has developed into a star litigator. His practice focuses broadly on both complex civil litigation and white collar defense. Andrew was a judicial extern to the Hon. Stephen V. Wilson in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Andrew earned his J.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law, and his B.A. from the University of California, Davis, cum laude.

What about Larson influenced you to move from a large law firm to a boutique in 2016?

When I was working as a junior associate at a large law firm, I feared that my litigation skills were not developing at the pace that I wanted. I was often asked to repurpose work product from prior cases, and I found myself wanting to be at a firm where the attorneys take a fresh and highly individualized approach to each case. Finding a firm with Larson’s approach – which views each case as unique and crafts a customized strategy for each client – was an invigorating point in my career.

As someone who has been at Larson since the beginning, what has it been like to see Larson’s growth over the past eight years?

I remember walking into the office in my early days at Larson when all of the attorneys were still moving in their boxes and people were hanging TV’s on the wall. There was a palpable feeling of being a part of something big, exciting, and unknown, but this came with a deep sense of collective cohesion about what our goal was – to be the best boutique litigation firm in Los Angeles. That same ethos and excitement still exists today. It’s been amazing to watch the firm achieve so many successes for its clients, and I am very glad to have been a part of the first chapter.

What do you love about being a litigator?

I love that I get to write and think critically every single day. I feel that legal arguments are more complex and oral arguments occur less frequently, so attorneys need to convey as much as they can through written advocacy and communication. I strive to become a better writer each day and make every brief I write better than the last. The depth and diversity of our practice has provided me with continuous opportunities to create fresh legal strategies and solutions that deliver results for our clients.

Why do clients come to you and the Larson team?

I approach all firm clients in the way I would want a lawyer to treat my family and its businesses. I make sure that they know they’re not alone and that they are going to be okay. Litigation is not a fun thing to deal with, and a key part of my job is to make sure my clients know – and believe – that in our hands, they will be alright.

What do you consider to be the most significant victory you’ve achieved for a client?

One of the victories I am most proud of has been the result we obtained for Best Energy Solutions & Technology Corp. in the case of California Fueling, LLC v. Best Energy Solutions & Technology Corp. When I joined the case, we had secured what we thought was a very beneficial settlement for our client. Then we were told that the lawsuit was continuing, and we had the opportunity to better our previous successes for the client through a trial victory. That was a memorable and rewarding case to work on because we delivered excellent results in motion practice leading up to trial and at trial—under a very demanding case schedule. I really grew throughout the case, having started working on it as a junior associate and eventually obtaining a trial victory for the client just as I was becoming partner.

What is something that someone wouldn’t know by looking at your professional bio?

I have a twin brother and together we own fast casual franchise restaurants in the San Fernando Valley. So, when I’m not working as a lawyer, I’m busy helping my brother make subs, pizzas, or ice cream on the weekends.

Andrew Bedigian’s practice focuses on complex civil and commercial disputes and white collar criminal defense.
