G. Larson, who is defending a Rancho Cucamonga developer in a high-profile San Bernardino County corruption case, one of the leading trial lawyers in the U.S.
Larson, an Upland resident, was among 37 attorneys from the Los Angeles-based law firm Arent Fox included in the Legal 500 Series' list of leading trial attorneys.
According to its website, the Legal 500 Series has been published for more than 20 years and provides the "most comprehensive worldwide coverage currently available on legal services providers in over 100 countries."
Larson is a former federal judge and former chief of the organized crime section of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles. As a defense attorney, he now specializes in white-collar crimes, complex business disputes and intellectual property matters, among other things.
Larson is defending Rancho Cucamonga developer Jeff Burum in a conspiracy and bribery case in which three former county officials are also named as defendants.
Burum, former county Supervisor Paul Biane, former Assistant Assessor Jim Erwin and Mark Kirk, former chief of staff for Supervisor Gary Ovitt, are accused of conspiring to convince the Board of Supervisors to approve a $102 million settlement with Burum's Colonies Partners LP over a flood-control dispute in exchange for bribes.
