Christine Lepera and Adam Levin Named to Variety's 2021 "Legal Impact Report"
Christine Lepera and Adam Levin were named to Variety's 2021 Legal Impact Report on April 8, 2020.
Christine Lepera has been at the center of several of the most contentious, high-profile cases in the music industry, most notably as the representative of producer Dr. Luke in his ongoing defamation case against Kesha. She was also recognized for her work as lead defense counsel in copyright infringement cases against the creators of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” Jay-Z’s “Paper Chase,” Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams,” Post Malone’s “Circles,” and Drake’s “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2.”
Currently before the court of appeal on behalf of Fox and Disney over composer Alf Clausen’s discrimination suit, Adam Levin was also at the center of the industry-altering dispute between the Writers Guild of America and talent agents last year when he sued the WGA on behalf of UTA, alleging that the union’s call for members to fire their agents violates antitrust and federal labor laws. He was also recognized for his victory in the California Supreme Court for CNN in an employment discrimination case and defended numerous other major media companies in employment disputes (Fox, Disney, Warner Bros., CBS).
