Jenner & Block Partners Amy M. Gallegos, Richard L. Stone and Andrew J. Thomas have been named “Top Intellectual Property Litigators” by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal.  Profiled in the April 22 issue, they are recognized for their work in the “Copyright” area and Mr. Thomas is additionally recognized in “Trademark.”

Ms. Gallegos is noted for co-leading the team that represented broadcasters in litigation to stop Aereo, Inc. from retransmitting local television broadcasters over the Internet without permission from content owners.  Mr. Stone was recognized for the third consecutive year; his profile focuses on his role in the Aereo disputes, as well as his representation of Fox Broadcasting Company in a copyright infringement and breach of contract lawsuit against Dish Networks LLC.  Mr. Thomas is recognized for winning a motion to dismiss trademark claim on behalf of Warner Bros. Entertainment in a case about “The Dark Knight Rises” movie and for enforcing a preliminary injunction on behalf of Universal Studios in a case involving the “Fifty Shades of Grey” novels.

The Daily Journal noted that the lawyers selected for recognition “helped to advance technological innovation or transform the law while representing a range of clients” and exemplify “the impressive and diverse work done by California attorneys whose work advances the state’s leadership in intellectual property law.”
