The Daily Journal, California’s legal newspaper of record, has selected Complex Commercial Litigation partner Nima Mohebbi to its prestigious 40 Under 40 list, which annually celebrates California-based lawyers who are making significant impact in their field.

As highlighted in his profile, Mr. Mohebbi turned in a stellar year of headline-making results on a wide range of disputes and legal work.
