Review George Kalikman

About Me

Mr. Kalikman is the managing partner of the San Francisco office and a member of the Firm's Executive Committee. He represents businesses ranging from closely held to publicly traded companies that are engaged in diverse industries including financial services, real estate investment, real estate development, telecommunications, information technology, manufacturing, music and entertainment, resort and hospitality, construction, oil and gas, agriculture, health care, and insurance. 

Mr. Kalikman's work often focuses on working closely with companies' principals to develop and implement strategies to maximize companies' value and to achieve results in an efficient and tax-advantaged manner. When appropriate, Mr. Kalikman draws on the knowledge of his colleagues in the five practice groups that comprise the Firm's Business Services Department, of which he is a former co-chair: Corporate & Finance; Tax; Real Estate; Intellectual Property; and Creditors' Rights & Business Restructuring.

Mr. Kalikman has substantial experience, both as a retained neutral and as an advocate on behalf of his clients, in the mediation of disputes between and among business partners and other parties seeking a negotiated resolution of complex business disputes. He also works closely with his colleagues in the Firm's Financial Services Litigation Practice Group, in arbitration proceedings and in litigation cases.
