Who We Are

Kaye, Rose & Partners, LLP was established in 1991 after its founding partners, Larry Kaye and Bradley Rose left a preeminent international law firm to open a boutique firm specializing in maritime law. Representing a handful of cruise lines, commercial shipping companies and their insurers, the firm quickly grew, staffing offices in each of California’s major port cities, Los Angeles/Long Beach, San Francisco/Oakland, and San Diego. Nearly 30 years later, during which the firm was named as one of the Top 25 Boutique law firms in California, Kaye, Rose & Partners has diversified beyond its traditional maritime practice to provide an array of legal services to businesses worldwide in the areas of corporate transactions and litigation, business affairs consulting, inland transportation, government agency regulation and traditional and new media entertainment.
