The Daily Journal named Hailyn Chen and Bethany Kristovich 2020 Top Women Lawyers in California on Nov. 4, 2020.
The Daily Journal highlighted Ms. Chen, Co-Managing Partner of the firm, for her work as one of the University of California’s principal litigators defending the University against a broad range of high-profile lawsuits. She successfully defended the University in a class action filed by students found responsible for sexual misconduct across all ten UC campuses and recently represented the University in a lawsuit seeking to enjoin the University’s use of standardized testing in admissions decisions.
Ms. Kristovich, known for her ability to drive to resolution high-stakes, complex matters, was acknowledged by the Daily Journal for her counsel to clients in crisis. Among other many high-stakes matters, Ms. Kristovich represented MGM in lawsuits arising from the 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas and was able to reach a favorable settlement in only two years before any discovery — a remarkably fast timeline for resolving a mass tort of this magnitude.
