Kasowitz opened its Los Angeles office in 2013, expanding the firm’s top-ranked insurance recovery practice with the addition of west coast attorneys who represent corporate policyholders in state and federal courts throughout the United States. These attorneys also provide strategic counseling to senior executives and in-house counsel on how to mitigate risk and maximize their insurance recoveries. They are considered by Chambers USA
, the Daily Journal
and Benchmark Litigation
to be among the nation’s leading insurance recovery litigators.
In October 2013, the firm launched its Entertainment Practice Group, led by Los Angeles based attorneys who represent actors, directors, producers, talent agencies, business managers, lawyers and others in the entertainment industry in their most significant disputes, with a focus on maximizing the value of their clients' "backend" profit participation interests. In particular, our entertainment attorneys specialize in providing pre-litigation advice in connection with profit participation audits and negotiating audit settlements, and in litigating profit participation claims. The group is led by a former Senior Vice President and Head of West Coast Television Litigation at NBCUniversal.
