September 2022 – The Daily Journal today recognized Kendall Brill & Kelly LLP Partner Philip M. Kelly as one of California’s Top 100 Lawyers.

The publication, which annually recognizes 100 accomplished attorneys in California and highlights their successes from the past year, specifically honors and interviews practicing attorneys “whose legal work changed the law, an industry or society in the last year.”

In its writeup, the Daily Journal honored Mr. Kelly as a named partner who “has achieved significant victories in cases involving some of the biggest names in traditional and new media.” In particular, the publication highlighted his representation of CBS Broadcasting in ongoing arbitration with actor Chuck Norris’ production company, Top Kick, in a $30 million breach of contract dispute involving the hit TV show ‘Walker, Texas Ranger.’ It also noted his work as lead counsel defending social media giant TikTok, Inc. in a well-publicized copyright infringement lawsuit.

In his interview with the Daily Journal, Mr. Kelly spoke to the cooperative nature of KBK’s team and the value it brings in effective representation: “I think people thrive when you’ve constructed a team that works well together and has all the right pieces – that’s the way to successfully represent a client.”
