A Foundation of Success

Lanak & Hanna’s primary focus is construction dispute, surety claims and commercial litigation.  Expertise, experience, responsiveness and value are the very foundation of our work at Lanak & Hanna.

Clients come to lawyers with immediate issues and concerns requiring prompt, personal, efficient, favorable and correct legal resolution. Responding to these needs is our hallmark as confirmed by many of our clients ranging from the small single owner enterprise to multimillion dollar valued sureties, contractors and other business entities.

We know all areas of California construction, surety and commercial law. We should — we’ve practiced in these areas for over 40 years. No one matches the depth of experience and knowledge of construction, surety and commercial law in Southern California. We get right to the heart of every matter to solve even the most complicated legal matters quickly and efficiently.

Originally founded in Los Angeles by Frank Lanak and Joseph Hanna, we relocated to Orange County in 1987, where we were joined by Craig Bronstein in 1994. Our steady growth has allowed us to build on our successes while maintaining the same level of personalized service we’ve provided since we opened our doors in 1977. Our attorneys provide responsive and value-driven representation to every client, and we don’t stop until we get the right result.

“Our steady growth has allowed us to build on our successes while maintaining the same level of personalized service…”

Our in-depth knowledge of the construction industry and its business issues gives the firm a unique combination of practical experience and intellectual acumen we deliver to every client. Our business philosophy is client-centric: we treat our clients’ problems as our own. And we understand the importance of value for money and predictability. After more than forty years working with the construction industry, we know how to boil down a dispute to its most essential elements.

Lanak & Hanna has represented sureties in connection with claims against their surety bonds, ranging from license and permit bonds, court bonds, miscellaneous bonds to public and private contract bonds for over 40 years.
