LOS ANGELES — Farid and Farhad Novian credit the 24 year longevity of their seven lawyer litigation and transaction boutique Novian & Novian LLP to a sense of trust in Each other, Their staff and clients.
"It's kept the two of us together." said Farid, 53, the older of the two brothers. "We're a tight-knit group with respect to the office and staff. We have clients dating back to 1988 who still give as a lot of work. We've [developed] a sense of community."
The brothers liken that good vibe to the traditional support system that extended families in Middle Eastern cultures create.
They also credit their Father, who was educated at Columbia University before going back to Iran, for having the foresight lo return to the United Stales with his family in 1970, thus giving his sons the opportunity to launch a law firm.
It was the era of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and to the young Novians the atmosphere provided "a beacon of light," Farhad said, fueling their belief that anything was possible.
