Alison Plessman and Vicki Chou again have been named to the list of “Women of Influence: Attorneys” by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
Ms. Plessman has established herself as a top litigator, representing clients in high stakes matters, including securities fraud, copyright infringement, wildfire litigation, trade secret theft, breach of contract and professional negligence matters, and white collar defense. From securing a preliminary injunction against SweeGen, Inc. in favor of its minority shareholders in an action alleging breaches of fiduciary duties, self-dealing, and securities fraud, to winning a motion to dismiss in favor of Broadcom Corporation, Ms. Plessman consistently delivers successful outcomes for high-profile clients faced with complex, challenging business, regulatory, and criminal matters.
Ms. Chou, a recognized rising star, is a partner and a key member of the White Collar and Investigations team. She is a seasoned trial and appellate attorney and recently served as a Deputy Chief in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California. Since joining Hueston Hennigan, Ms. Chou has been involved with developing strategies related to many of the firm’s complex and high-profile cases. She has been recognized as a rising star by multiple publications: 40 & Under Hot List by Benchmark Litigation (2020), Top Women Attorneys and Top Minority Attorneys List by the Los Angeles Business Journal (2020), and one of only 20 recipients of National Asian Pacific American Bar Association’s (NAPABA) 2020 Best Under 40, a significant accomplishment as the field includes those in all areas of the law, including the judiciary, academia, and politics.
The Los Angeles Business Journal recognized LA’s most influential attorneys. These women have been singled out for being 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.
