December 2023 — The Daily Journal, California’s leading legal publication, has again honored Kendall Brill & Kelly LLP Partner Robert E. Dugdale among California’s Top White Collar Lawyers. This marks the fourth year in a row that the Journal has named Mr. Dugdale to its annual list recognizing the state’s best attorneys in white collar defense and investigations.

The Journal cited Mr. Dugdale’s skill in navigating “the legal complexities of high-stakes situations,” and highlighted as a recent example his ongoing representation of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the County of Los Angeles in a politically motivated criminal investigation involving raids launched by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s against outspoken opponents of its former leader, Sheriff Alex Villanueva.

As a KBK Partner, one of the region’s leading trial lawyers, and a former federal prosecutor who specializes in white collar defense and government investigations, Mr. Dugdale’s nearly 20 years of expertise in the federal system has served his clients well, with a winning record of keeping clients free of prosecution and out of the headlines. In addition to this latest award, he has earned numerous accolades, including his ongoing Chambers ranking as one of California’s Top White Collar lawyers and the CLAY Award.
