December 2021 – Kendall Brill & Kelly LLP Partner Robert Edward Dugdale was honored again this year as one of California’s Top White Collar Lawyers by the state’s largest legal publication, the Daily Journal.

This was the second year in a row that the publication has named Mr. Dugdale one of the state’s Top White Collar Lawyers.

In recognizing Mr. Dugdale, the Journal noted that he keeps clients “free from prosecution and out of the headlines.” He told the Journal that he does this by “helping high-profile clients navigate rough waters and convincing the government in many cases to not bring ruinous criminal charges in what would have been headline cases.”

Mr. Dugdale also monitors federal developments and shares those with clients, telling the Journal that the U.S. Department of Justice recently signaled that it is “moving full steam ahead” on investigations and cases involving corporate crime.

The Journal also noted that Mr. Dugdale has been retained by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to independently investigate allegations against that organization reported over a hotline set up by the HFPA and that he represents the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon in a lawsuit filed by a district attorney’s union.
