Specifically, Kimberly Arouh, shareholder in the litigation section and Keith R. Solar, shareholder in the real estate section, were selected to the Super Lawyers list and David L.

Super Lawyers, a Thompson Reuters business, is a rating service of lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a multi-phase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area.

Arouh represents clients in complex litigation in a range of areas, including contract, employment, land use, eminent domain, construction and real estate litigation, water rights litigation, energy-related litigation, securities and derivative litigation, class actions, antitrust litigation and merger and acquisition litigation.

Solar represents both public and private clients primarily in connection with water rights and water-related issues, matters involving the United States tuna industry, real estate matters and commercial law issues and also serves as the head of Buchanan’s San Diego office.

Plantz helps institutional lenders negotiate and document credit facilities secured by commercial real estate and assists his clients in navigating the related finance and real estate issues.
