Jenner & Block

Partner Julie Shepard Named among LA Business Journal’s “Most Influential Women Lawyers”

Jenner & Block Partner Julie A. Shepard is recognized in the Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2017 “Most Influential Women Lawyers” list.

The publication notes that “there are some particularly stellar attorneys in the LA region who happen to be women” and that the list features “50 of the best.”

The Journal highlights in its profile Ms. Shepard’s role co-leading a Jenner & Block team to a recent reversal in the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit of a court decision that could have allowed the company FilmOn X to stream content over the internet without authorization from her client, Fox.

The profile adds that “Shepard is on the front lines of such cases throughout the country, having secured a series of key victories on behalf of clients against unauthorized services asserting novel legal theories to broadcast programming over the internet without the copyright holders’ permission.”
