The owners of the downtown Los Angeles tower best known as the offices of television’s “L.A. Law” are facing a fast-track foreclosure from lender Oaktree Capital Management.

Oaktree moved to potentially seize control of the 48-story glass and steel building at 444 S. Flower St. — where actors including Harry Hamlin, Jimmy Smits, and Corbin Bernsen matched wits on the television show that ran for eight seasons after starting in 1986.
