Kaba and Chou Named Among Top Minority Attorneys

Mr. Kaba was noted “as a diverse, young attorney, who is quickly becoming a trusted advisor, serving as co-lead or second chair on the firm’s most significant matters.” In the last year alone, he obtained a complete defense victory for Caltech after a four-week jury trial in Los Angeles; prevailed in the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals on his argument that a social network is immune from liability for third party statements under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act; defeated a $100 million suit against Bausch Health Companies; obtained dismissal of two Title IX federal lawsuits filed against Caltech; obtained a preliminary injunction on behalf of Amgen against the State of California in a case setting new precedent for the pharmaceutical industry; and defeated the SEC’s motion for contempt against Elon Musk related to his tweets.

Ms. Chou was recognized for her successful career as a Deputy Chief in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California, where she represented the United States in hundreds of criminal cases, including computer and internet fraud, intellectual property, money laundering, bank fraud, tax fraud, and racketeering offenses. She successfully tried over 10 cases as lead counsel and won every one of her appeals before the Ninth Circuit.

The Los Angeles Business Journal recognized lawyers considered to be particularly impactful on the legal scene while serving as trusted advisors in the LA region, along with maintaining the highest professional and ethical standards, and for contributions to the Los Angeles business and legal community at large.
