Kelly Klaus and Melinda LeMoine Named Top IP Lawyers by the Daily Journal

Munger, Tolles & Olson attorneys Kelly M. Klaus and Melinda E. LeMoine were named among the Top IP Litigators in California by the Daily Journal on March 18, 2020.

The award acknowledges only 75 of California’s leading patent, trademark and copyright attorneys.

A top media and entertainment lawyer, Kelly Klaus was recognized as a go-to lawyer for the motion picture industry in protecting their most valuable assets — their content.

The publication notes that Kelly has established himself as a leader for copyright issues in the new digital media space.  With his proven record of success and his innovative legal solutions, he is frequently called upon by media and entertainment companies to handle their most significant and cutting-edge copyright and intellectual property matters.

Litigation partner Melinda LeMoine was honored for supporting clients in the media and entertainment industry for their most significant intellectual property disputes.

During the past 18 months alone, she represented Disney in copyright disputes involving the hit song “Let It Go” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, and she fought to protect the content of various studios against unauthorized streaming by pirate services like Omniverse and Setvnow.
