A Cost-Effective, Full-Service Law Firm.

Welcome to Russ August & Kabat

Russ August & Kabat was founded in 1990 by Larry Russ, Rick August and Jules Kabat. By combining their litigation, corporate and finance, real estate and intellectual property expertise, they established a law firm that focuses on the creative analysis of complex legal problems to achieve outstanding results. In 2003, Marc Fenster joined the firm, and launched the patent litigation group, now over 20 lawyers strong. The firm is proud of its lawyers and the personal attention we are able to give to each of our clients. Over the years, the firm has maintained its focus while expanding its practice areas. In the process, we have established ourselves as one of the top midsize law firms in Los Angeles. In 2014 and 2015, Russ August & Kabat was named to the Top Law Firms list by the Los Angeles Business Journal.

Russ August & Kabat lawyers have the highest level of academic achievement and practical legal experience. While many of our lawyers have been trained at the most prestigious local, national and international law firms, and can practice anywhere they choose, they have chosen to practice here, in a creative and high-quality environment.

Russ August & Kabat has over twenty five attorneys and two offices in Los Angeles. Our lawyers have clerked for federal judges, run in-house legal departments, and have headed other law firms or departments of major national firms. Our attorneys have degrees in bio-engineering, electrical engineering, physics, biochemistry and other fields that are directly relevant to our client work.

Russ August & Kabat is proud to be one of the preeminent midsize law firms in Los Angeles. We are proud to have an outstanding, varied and interesting client base. And we are proud to be a firm where our attorneys can work in a collegial, creative and results-oriented legal atmosphere.
