HECHTSOLBERG NAMES MICHAEL “MICKEY” MAHER MANAGING PARTNER
SAN DIEGO, August, 2013 –Hecht Solberg Robinson Goldberg & Bagley LLP (HechtSolberg), a San Diego-based law firm with more than 40 years of serving real estate and business clients throughout Southern California, announces that Michael “Mickey” Maher has been named managing partner.
Maher succeeds Darryl Solberg who has served in that capacity since 1997. Solberg remains an active partner in the firm, focusing solely on practicing law and client relationships.
“I have enjoyed serving HechtSolberg as managing partner, but am excited and energized to once again be able to devote my full attention to practicing law without the responsibilities of management,” said Solberg. “Mickey and I will continue to work closely together to ensure a smooth transition.”
The firm made the managing partner announcement simultaneously with its adoption of a new strategic plan that all firm attorneys were intricately involved in developing.
“After celebrating our 40 year anniversary in 2012, we are now keenly focused on building upon our deep San Diego roots to serve real estate and business clients statewide,” Maher said. “We are very proud to be representing clients on a variety of matters, not only in San Diego but in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area and other key markets throughout California. We look forward to growing the visibility and reputation of the firm as a highly regarded real estate and business boutique, while retaining our culture that values and respects the role we have played in local history.”
Maher recognized Solberg’s leadership as being instrumental in guiding the firm successfully through the recent five-year downturn and allowing it to enter the current recovery cycle as a nimble, responsive organization. The firm emerges with a strong, highly knowledgeable team of lawyers who are recognized for providing high value, practical real estate and business advice and delivering exceptional client service.
“Darryl’s mentorship during some of the toughest years the industry has faced since the 1930s has been of tremendous value to each and every one of us, and has allowed our firm to emerge with the depth of expertise and resources to support our clients through the next economic cycle,” Maher said.
