September 2019 – The national legal publication Law360 honored Kendall Brill & Kelly LLP Partner Patrick J. Somers as one of three “Rising Stars” from across the country in the Media and Entertainment practice area.

The publication said it selected the winners based on “their career accomplishments in their respective disciplines.” Law360 said it received 1,300 submissions for the Rising Star distinction, and its team of editors chose 175 honorees from that list in 39 different practice areas.

Mr. Somers joined KBK in 2017 and was named one of California’s top 40 attorneys under the age of 40 by the state’s leading legal publication, the Daily Journal, earlier this year. He has achieved several significant victories for high-profile entertainment, media, corporate, and individual clients. Among his achievements for entertainment and media clients, he has obtained a verdict in favor of a client at trial, numerous dismissals of complaints, summary judgment orders, and favorable settlements. He also has successfully defended judgments and verdicts on appeal. More>.
