Jenner & Block Partner Julie A. Shepard is recognized in the Daily Journal’s 2017 “Top Women Lawyers” list.  The publication features a profile on Ms. Shepard that highlights her recent achievements. The profile notes a matter Ms. Shepard led last year with Partner Richard L. Stone. The US District Court for the District of Columbia issued a preliminary injunction in favor of Fox Television Stations Inc., prohibiting the company FilmOn X from retransmitting the broadcaster’s copyrighted content on the internet. The profile also mentions the $940 million jury verdict Ms. Shepard and a team of Jenner & Block lawyers won on behalf of software company Epic Systems Corp. in a substantial corporate espionage case against Tata Consultancy Services. The publication notes this victory as “one of the largest trade secret verdicts in US history.”
