Introducing the Influencers: Law

Three Sacramento lawyers selected to national list of influential attorneys…

Produced by the Business Journals, this list spotlights 100 attorneys‚ including three from Sacramento, who are having an impact on business and legal matters in communities across the nation.

The lawyers featured here represent both large, nationally recognized firms and smaller, locally focused businesses. Some are long-tenured executives while others have found success relatively early in their careers. And while some might be familiar industry names and others less so, as a group nationally, these individuals are having an impact on matters of business and law in myriad areas.

The Sacramento lawyers on the list are Gary Bradus, managing partner of Weintraub Tobin Chediak Coleman Grodin Law Corp.; Malcolm Segal, CEO of Segal and Associates PC; and Bill Warne, chairman of Downey Brand LLP.

These executives were identified in conjunction with editors and staff writers across The Business Journals’ network of more than 40 publications, including the Sacramento Business Journal. Each has been featured as part of The Business Journals’ continuing coverage of the newsmakers in those cities. These are executives to know for entrepreneurs and companies that are looking to expand their businesses to new locations or to grow further in the cities in which they’re now operating.

From the Sacramento Business Journal

Malcolm Segal has built his career working as a defense attorney for some of the most notorious defendants in Sacramento courts, often pitted against prosecutors from his professional alma mater, the U.S. Department of Justice. Prominent people come to Segal & Associates when they face allegations that threaten significant jail time or to end their careers. People come to him when they have everything to lose, according to Segal, “because I can find a solution.”

It was another fabulous event hosted by the Sacramento Business Journal at Cafeteria L in downtown Sacramento. Malcolm Segal was honored as one of Sacramento’s Best of the Bar. All of those awarded had been nominated and then vetted by a panel of their peers. When it comes to searching for legal help, there’s nothing more reliable than a list compiled by professionals who have worked extensively with (and even against) one another.
