About The Firm

Julie Arias Young and Harry Zinn

The business of the law is to make sense of the confusion of what we call human life -- to reduce it to order but at the same time to give it possibility, scope, even dignity. Archibald MacLeish

Young & Zinn LLP is a full service boutique law firm practicing all aspects of employment law and litigation. Formerly known as Young, Zinn & Bate LLP, the firm combines the expertise and sophistication of a large firm practice with the highest level of service and efficiency tailored to each client’s specialized needs with a focus on practical, real world solutions. Each of its two partners practiced for many years at one of the world’s largest and most prestigious employment law groups before forming their own firm over seventeen years ago. Julie Arias Young and Harry Zinn both have been recognized as California “Super Lawyers” for each of past twelve years in employment and labor law and employment litigation, and both are AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell. The Firm also qualifies as a certified Women-Owned Business.

Firm clients include world-renowned prestigious private universities and cultural institutions, national retailers and insurance companies, multinational manufacturers, large public utilities, Major League Baseball clubs, entertainment and venture capital entities, law firms, and other employers of all sizes and endeavors. The firm also represents senior executives in non-litigation matters, including contract and severance negotiations and intellectual property issues.

We take pride in our role both as true counselors - working with our clients to devise creative and practical solutions to the wide range of challenges they face - and as fierce but professional advocates in litigation, arbitration, and before administrative agencies.
