Methodology

10TH EDITION

U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms”

T

HE U.S. NEWS – BEST LAWYERS ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” RANKINGS are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and law yer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. To be eligible for a ranking in a particular practice area and metro region, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers in that practice area and metro. For more information on Best Lawyers ®, please visit www. bestlawyers.com. For the 2020 “Best Law Firms” list, the methodology for the initiative remained the same as in the previous nine years. Clients were asked to provide feedback on firm practice groups, addressing expertise, responsiveness, understanding of a business and its needs, cost-effectiveness, civility, and whether they would refer another client to the firm. Clients also had the option to write in the names of law firms with which they’ve worked on other matters and within practice areas beyond those on which they were asked by the submitting firm to comment. Some clients chose to write comments about their experiences with the law firms. These comments are for reference only and were not used as data points in the formal evaluation process. Lawyers also voted on expertise, responsiveness, integrity, cost-effectiveness, whether they would refer a matter to a firm, and whether they consider a firm a worthy competitor. We asked this group to vote on law firms that have preeminent national presence within specified legal practice area(s) they know well. For the sixth year, a Law Firm Leaders Survey was implemented to provide personal insight on the legal landscape surrounding the nationally ranked practice areas. In addition to information from these surveys, the rankings incorporate the 7.8 million evaluations of more than 110,000 individual leading lawyers collected by Best Lawyers in its most recent annual survey. In addition to lawyer and client feedback, law firms were asked to provide us with general demographic and background information on the law firm and attorneys, and other data that speaks to the strengths of a law firm’s practice areas. All of the quantitative and qualitative data were combined into an overall “Best Law Firms” score

10

for each firm. This data was then compared to other firms within the same metropolitan area and at the national level. Because firms were often separated by small or insignificant differences in overall score, we use a tiering system rather than ranking law firms sequentially. The first tier in each metropolitan area includes those firms that scored within a certain percentage of the highest-scoring firm(s); the second tier, those firms that scored within a certain percentage of the next highest scoring firm(s), and so on. The national rankings were based on metropolitan rankings as well as on the number of offices each firm had with a metropolitan ranking and on the level of legal activity in each metropolitan area. The number of tiers included in each practice area or metropolitan area ranking varies. Of the 14,931 firms that were eligible to submit information for the ranking process, 14,365 firms, including a large number of one-person firms, received rankings, and 9,422 of those firms received first-tier national and/or metropolitan rankings. Metropolitan areas are defined by assessing the population of eligible law firms geographically to guarantee enough comparative data to produce accurate results. There are eight states that had high percentages of eligible law firms located in one large metropolitan area. Because there were also eligible law firms outside of those metropolitan areas, but not enough to create accurate results for separate metropolitan rankings, results were produced for the entire state. The states that fall into this category are: Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Utah.

Practice area rankings were produced both nationally and within 188 metropolitan areas across the United States. Because some practice areas have minimal presence in particular legal markets, or because there was not enough data garnered for proper evaluation, some practice areas that are covered in our research are not represented in the national rankings or various metropolitan rankings. The 2020 “Best Law Firms” national rankings cover 75 practice areas, while as many as 127 practice areas are covered on the metropolitan lists. For the ninth year, one law firm in 75 practice areas will receive the prestigious "Law Firm of the Year" recognition. Law firms receiving the “Law Firm of the Year” designation have an impressive overall performance in our research of a given practice area, representing a significant showing in the 2020 U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” initiative. ●

The 2020 rankings incorporate 7.8 million evaluations of more than 110,000 individual leading lawyers from more than 15,000 firms.

SUPPORTIVE ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP Those at the pinnacle of the profession owe it to their law firms—and themselves—to support talented attorneys in ways that ensure success.

T

HE BEST LAWYERS IN AMERICA© has always

been the preeminent guide for recognizing great attorneys, and I remember with pride the first time I learned of my inclusion. Of late I’ve read quite a few legal think-pieces detailing the obligations that lawyers owe their firms. That’s of course quite important. Here, though, I’d like to look at the other side of the coin and outline some of the vital support that firms can offer their leaders to help them succeed. The upper echelon of legal talent, like the attorneys highlighted in Best Lawyers, are smart, experienced, and hardworking, looking to deliver great service in complex matters and achieve the best possible results. Over days, months, even years, they’ll focus almost 24/7 on solving their clients’ toughest problems. But even the best know they can’t do it alone —they need a highly functional team and strong organizational support. There are plenty of basic but critical things law firms can offer their leaders to ensure maximum success. Here’s an overview.

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

It’s important for a firm to remove as many obstacles as possible from its lawyers’ paths. A professional support staff is therefore crucial so lawyers can be confident that the firm’s everyday

operations— IT, billing, marketing, administrative help—are functioning well. Partners and top attorneys aren’t absolved of all responsibilities, of course; developing future great lawyers, being a collaborative and kind colleague, and practicing good fiscal hygiene are all vital. But a firm’s “best lawyers” need to be able to focus on what they do best: practice law.

Functional and Stable Environment

The best attorneys need a stable professional environment that isn’t drama-f ille d or whose f ut ure is uncertain. Think of a soldier deployed to a combat zone who keeps getting letters from home about how bad things are: Distractions like these make it more difficult for a lawyer to compartmentalize his or her client responsibilities, and thereby maximize performance. Although many star performers are deeply involved in their firm’s leadership, others are not. When they return from battle, they need to be given the opportunity to be heard and provide input on the firm’s direction.

Freedom

Any organization should be willing to give its top attorneys some operational freedom—as long as their actions are ethical, constructive, and fair, of course.

Leaders should frequently reiterate the firm’s core values and set clear expectations but resist the urge for overcentralized management that enforces too many burdensome policies.

mental and emotional well-being or they’ll be less able to take care of clients. No lawyer gets through a career without some tough personal times and health challenges. The firm

"A firm that requires too much conformity will stifle its talent." In the world of auto racing, there’s a saying that a car simply can’t go as fast as it otherwise might if the steering is too “tight.” The same is true of running a law firm. Stay on the track; don’t wreck. But a significant amount of driver autonomy is other wise important. A firm that requires too much conformity will stifle its talent. An inclusive, diverse environment that encourages lawyers to be their best selves will function far better.

Attorney Well-Being

The firm must prioritize the overall well-being of its attorneys. This is delicate: Partners and top associates are notoriously high achievers who demand a lot of themselves and those around them. The pressure and anxiety inherent to handling high-prof ile matters takes a toll over time on even the toughest lawyer. In addition to physical health, though, lawyers must tend to their

needs to be there to offer its attorneys empathy, encouragement, and support. Yes, leadership has that obligation—it is indeed their business to proactively get involved.

Servant Leadership

Finally, firm leaders must understand that their primary (if not sole) role is to help others in the firm succeed. You don’t hear the term servant leadership much in the legal world, but it’s leaders’ most significant task. They need to leave the organization, and the people in it, in a better, more sustainable place than it was when they got there. In sum, top attorneys greatly enjoy the practice of law, helping their clients solve difficult legal problems. By providing the right level of support and removing impediments to success, law firms can help their star performers continue to enjoy their work—and deliver excellent client ser vice and superior results as they do.

PATENT (WIN) PENDING In every court proceeding, patent litigation included, there will be a winner and a loser. Everyone wants to win, but half lose. Why?

L

A W Y E R S , U N DE R STA N DA BLY,

want to win ever y thing in patent litigation, or any litigation: every discovery dispute, every tit-fortat argument. Most of these battles are of little moment. You need, instead, to focus. Which issues—one, two, or three of the most crucial factors, say—will make you a winner? If your client is the plaintiff, choose your b es t patent claims. Eliminate those that are mediocre or even good; you’re looking for the best on offer. For a defendant, select the best several defenses. You might not be able to identify them at the outset, of course, but don’t use that as an excuse to maintain 37 different defenses up to trial. In one David-and-Goliath case in which we represented the plaintiff (the underdog), we chose just one patent to assert, bypassing many other patents and a veritable chariot-load of nonpatent claims. Remember the key to David’s success: one stone in a simple slingshot, aimed with precision. Some defendants want to rely on many prior-art references, or many combinations of prior art, to show that a patent claim is “obvious.” Instead, they end up proving to a jury’s satisfaction that the claim is not obvious because they needed so many pieces of prior art. Pour your energy into only the best patent claims or the best defenses. Eschew all others.

Recognize Your Weaknesses

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

Lawyers love Kool-Aid—the kind they mix themselves, at any rate. It’s never good to drink your own, though. Spend more time understanding and appreciating the strength of the other side’s arguments. Pe o p l e u s e d t o b e b e t t e r a t this. It relies on a crucial skill called “listening.” Things have changed over the last decade or so, though: People no longer care to listen to different points of view, in politics or anything else. Attorneys have contracted this malady no less severely than others. Yet go o d law yer s will re co gnize their own case’s weaknesses, both component by component and in toto. In one battle between two co r p o r a t i o n s of d e ce n t si ze, we r e p r e s e nte d t h e d e f e n da nt . O ur


defenses were so poor that it was easy to regard this as a “damages” case for the plaintif f. A s the trial unfolded, though, it appeared that the plaintif f didn’t recognize one potential weakness. It s witnesses hadn’t been prepared for it. Surprised, we changed our trial theme to focus on this par ticular weakness. Did it work? We wouldn’t be sharing this stor y if it hadn’t. Consider the cross-examination of an expert witness. The witness is just that: the expert. That’s a problem for the lawyer. Don’t think you’ll easily pummel the expert into submission and win the case on your cross. Instead, assume the witness is his profession’s equivalent of Muhammad Ali. Wait until he’s dancing around the ring with his back to you, then jump through the ropes, give him two quick kidney punches and then jump back out. Congratulations: You’ve recognized your own weaknesses (and his strengths), and it earned you a couple points you might not otherwise have gotten.

ISTOCK.COM/RICHLEGG

Be Credible

That’s easy advice. Actually being credible is hard. This is especially true for law yers who must orchestrate the presentation of evidence across multiple witnesses. Sometimes witnesses initially seem important, but af ter a lot of work, you don’t think they’ll be credible. They think they are, of course—they consider themselves important, too— but they’re more likely to come across

"Regardless of how right you are on the facts and the law, no one will side with you unless you have a good story to tell." as literally in-credible. Cut them from your witness list. Most lawyers want to try to control situations, naturally, and as a result they want to give a witness a script and tell him or her exactly what to say and how to say it. Resist this urge. While it’s important to pick the right witnesses on the right topics to support your trial themes, allow them to tell their stories in their own words. It requires a lot more time and effort, but permitting witnesses to be themselves will result in a much more authentic presentation. Patent cases often come down to credibility battles between two technical experts. One says the patent is infringed; the other disagrees. Both have great credentials and technical chops. Who wins the jury verdict? The side with the more credible expert, of course. Now the tough part: How can you help boost your expert’s credibility? Encourage him to be more modest, even humble, and admit weaknesses. Most importantly, make him into a teacher. Ninety-nine percent of people can remember a teacher they loved.

Tell a Good Story

Patent cases often encompass dry, highly technical subjects. As such, law yers can get lost in the weeds and forget about the need for a simple, compelling narrative that ties everything together. This is a critical

mistake: Regardless of how right you are on the facts and the law, no one will side with you unless you have a good story to tell. A good story requires more than simply stating the facts chronologically. You have to provide the jury with a narrative that evokes an emotional response and makes them connect with your client’s story on a human level. Come up with personal anecdotes that your witnesses can tell to help them connect with the jury while advancing your case themes. In one case, we took over the representation of a medical-device defendant that had been found liable for infringement at a previous trial and was set to go to trial anew on the issue of damages and willfulness. The opposing side thought it would be enough to label us “bad guys” and ask for lots of money. But we responded with a compelling narrative told by longtime employees about how our client’s own innovations and devotion to superior patient care were the real reason for its success, not the plaintiff’s patented technology. The story was authentic; the jury found no willfulness and awarded minimal damages. Focus. Recognize your weaknesses. Make your key expert into a kindly teacher. And tell a good story. Now have fun winning!

PROPERTY RIGHTS…AND WRONGS Winning a legal battle often boils down to finding and targeting the weakest part of an opponent’s case. Four recent real estate disputes in northeast Ohio are good examples.

PR AC T IC E ,

we’ve learned that ever y case is different, and that real estate litigation puts immediate pressure on the client. Approaching a case strategically is vital to tr y to drive the matter to the quickest possible favorable result—and picking the right strategy is key. Ours usually entails focusing on the principal weakness, the most sensitive pressure point of the opponent ’s case. The right strategy needs to be laser-focused, not broad and vague. Consider these four examples:

A Battle Over Airport Expansion in Cleveland

In this instance, the Cit y of Cleveland faced an eminent-domain lawsuit brought by the adjoining municipalit y of Brook Park , Ohio, the same day that Cleveland had purchased and leased back to its owner the International Exposition Ce nte r, w h ich a b u t s Cl e ve la n d ’s Hopkins International Airport.


Fo r d e c a d e s , a ir p o r t of f icia ls had targeted this proper t y for a potential expansion to add a third international-ser vice runway and other facilities. Brook Park, in which

constitutes a prior public use. Winning that issue on the merits, though, would not have been enough at the trial level: The assigned judge apparently wasn’t going to give Cleveland a fair shake.

ISTOCK.COM/COLDSNOWSTORM

"Identifying the oppoent’s key weakness and focusing on it led to extraordinary relief once the suit was filed." the land is situated, exercised its power of eminent domain to take it for its own economic-development purposes. (Brook Park had won an earlier fight over a much smaller piece of land.) Having hired a powerhouse law firm out of Washington, D.C., Brook Park looked to win the case before a Cuyahoga County probate judge to whom all eminent-domain actions were assigned. Cleveland felt it had a valid defense of prior public use of the property—it had been meticulously planning to use the land for the airport, which itself

The city discovered that the judge had made ex parte comments to the other parties about Cleveland’s likelihood of losing the case. On the eve of the Ohio Supreme Court’s decision regarding Cleveland’s motion to disqualify, the judge resigned from the case. Once the playing field was level in front of a new county probate judge, the matter proceeded to a five-week trial. There Cleveland won based on its key prior-public-use defense. The victory, hailed by the leading Cleveland newspaper, The Plain Dealer, as a triumph for the entire region, started

the ball rolling on a global settlement between the two cities on a number of other legal issues they were likely to face in the future. This agreement ultimately led to peace bet ween Cleveland and Brook Park regarding airport expansion and various rights the latter chose to assert for property within its jurisdiction. The lesson here is that a strategy of leveling the playing field by getting b e f o r e a n ot h e r j u d g e a n d t h e n focusing on the key point of defense is what secured Cleveland the win. The city focused its fight on two important strategic points and was able to come out on top.

Rogue Architect Holds Up Project Finance

On the cusp of closing on $335 million in financing, including the issuance of public bonds, the project architect for Flats East, an 18-acre mixed-use development in downtown Cl e ve la n d , m a d e a f a t a l t h r ea t : Claiming it hadn’t been paid fees it

was owed, the firm took the position that the project was illegally using its blueprints and could not use them without legal risk to the owners of the project. The only way for the project owners to put a halt to this tactic was to obtain an unusual injunction from the state court to prevent the architect from attempting to assume control over the drawings, thereby depriving the project owners of their use. They filed suit, obtained a temporary restraining order (TRO), and were able to close the financing on schedule, just days from the TRO hearing date. Ultimately, a preliminary injunction trial was held; Flats East won again. The key factor here was focusing on preser ving the status quo and the threatened harm to the public, even though there was no written contract between the developer and the architect. It’s quite hard to obtain a TRO when no contract is in place, but success here was contingent upon focusing on other key arguments concerning the public benefit, the equities, the conduct of the architect, and in treating the drawings as having been owned by the development prior to the lawsuit. Again, identif ying the oppoent’s key weakness and focusing on it led to extraordinary relief once the suit was filed, permitting the project to proceed to viability through successful financing.

Intransigent Oil-and-Gas Investors (Finally) Sell Out

Just as site preparation was under way for a major new mixeduse development in the Cleveland

suburbs, two straggler interest holders in a low-performing oil-and-gas well on the property hijacked the project, obtaining a TRO halting construction while their interests were adjudicated. Annual royalties from the well were not substantial, and dozens of other interest holders had already sold their stake. Never theless, the t wo plaintiffs argued citing Constitutional protections that shielded their property interests. To prepare for a hearing on the motion for a preliminary injunction, an aggressive show of force was necessary to get the development back on track. Lawyers for the project took numerous depositions in an effort to give concrete meaning to ambiguous contract terms. Parsing the meaning of sloppy contract language, however, was not the strong surgical strike needed to ensure that the development could move forward. The key to a winning strategy here was recognizing that the two interest holders’ actions were fundamentally unfair despite their appeal to the Constitution. The duo had a very small economic interest in the continued operations of the oil-and-gas well, yet they had halted a major construction project that would create permanent jobs and revenue streams. The economic harm perpetrated by the two holdouts was astronomical, far out of proportion to the few dollars a year they could have earned from the well (and for which the developer was willing to pay). The cour t was receptive to this lack- of- economic-propor tionalit y argument and reset the required amount for the plaintiffs’ bond to a level they were unwilling to pay. The

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

case settled shortly after. Recognizing how best to present the inherent unfairness to the court cut right to the merits of an otherwise murky case. The developer was able to restart the project after just a short delay and completed the project, which has become a tremendous success.

Forcing Home Acquisitions via Airtight Agreement Terms

The City of Brook Park entered into a settlement agreement with the City of Cleveland that resolved a host of legal issues between the two. One unique sec tion of the agreement provided for a contract-driven eminent domain–style residence-acquisition program under which Cleveland would make of fers to purchase all homes in a particular neighborhood being eyed for future development. After completing about three-fourths of the program, though, Cleveland abruptly and arbitrarily stopped. Given the lengthy history of the project, that the underlying events occurred 10 to 20 years earlier, and that the interests of more than 100 homeowners were at stake, unfettered discovery could have been extremely t i m e - co n s u m i n g a n d e x p e n si ve. Clevelan d ’s weak sp ot , however, was the four corners of the written contract. Seeking to take advantage, Brook Park convinced the court (and, ultimately, Cleveland) to engage in limited written discovery followed by a full summary judgment procedure before deposition prac tice would be considered. Although the case is pending, we successfully played to Brook Park’s strengths.

GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE A baker's dozen tips for working with the Environmental Protection Agency.

W

H I L E T H E G O V E R N M E N T may seem like an impersonal bureaucratic behemoth, at its core it is just a group of human beings doing their jobs the best way they know how. Understanding the people who work at any government agency is key to understanding the agenc y itself. These tips can help yo u b e t te r un de r s t an d h ow b es t t o w o r k w i t h t h e Env i r o n m e n t a l Protec tion Agenc y.

1. Consider what is important to the Agency. EPA staf f are mission-driven, so tr y understanding their point of view. Approach the Agency with a compliance mindset.

2. Wisely use the chain of command and only strategically request meetings with senior-level decision makers.

Allyn Stern

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

It ’s always best to tr y and work issues out with the appropriate staff. If that isn’t possible, first- or second-level managers can resolve many problems quickly and easily in the time that it takes to get on a more senior decision maker’s calendar. You also will likely have limited opportunities to meet with senior officials, so you should use that opportunity wisely.


ISTOCK.COM/FANGXIANUO

When requesting management meetings, either do that through the staf f or provide a cour tesy notice to your staf f contact. The goodwill generated by that type of communication is meaningful.

3. Respect the staff.

The staf f are there because they strongly believe in environmental protec tion. Many of them gave up lucrative jobs to work in public service. Do not act condescendingly, and t ake care to respec t their expertise and their time.

4. Carefully consider changes to standard model terms in enforcement documents.

It might be irritating to agree to all those

model provisions in consent decrees and other enforcement documents, but typically avoid comprehensive challenges and selec t the terms that are most impor tant to you. EPA is a public-service organization that look s at the impac t of one decision on many other par ties. Precedent is impor tant and even minor changes to model documents can have a big impact. The agencies t ypically don’t agree to many of t h o s e b r o a d r e q u e s t s a n y w a y, resulting in time-consuming and ineffective negotiations. Focusing on the most impor tant terms will yield the best results.

5. Tailor Freedom of Information Act requests to the extent possible or offer to discuss in order to tailor.

If an information reques t is burdensome, discuss that with the Agency.

7. Make personal connections.

Develop a rappor t with staf f contacts. Make sure they understand why you are taking a certain position or making a request. Staff are often happy to share their knowledge and provide advice.

8. Be prepared.

Take th e tim e to research an d explain your views. Educate the staff on your business or process. Respec t fully and clearly explain what’s important to you.

11. Act with integrity.

It builds trust and helps to develop a good reputation with the Agency. Communicate clearly, openly, and honestly.

12. Be proactive if you find a violation.

The EPA’s audit polic y requires, am o n g oth e r thin gs , that yo u become compliant within 21 days of discovering a violation. If a violation is found, it’s best to proactively identify it and take the corrective actions needed before you are reported by an outside party.

13. Stay calm.

Re c e i v i n g a l e t t e r d e m a n d i n g information—or worse yet, a hefty fine—can be frustrating, scary, and infuriating. Release those emotions and gain a cool head before talking with the Agenc y. Communicate clearly and be well organized and prepared. bestlawfirms.usnews.com

BAKER, DONELSON, BEARMAN, CALDWELL & BERKOWITZ, PC bakerdonelson.com

A SEA CHANGE ON LAND Autonomous vehicles will revolutionize almost every area of the law. Here’s a look at what’s rapidly approaching. It may be closer than it appears.

T

HE MAIN QUESTION

concerning autonomous vehicles is “when,” not “if.” They’re coming. And traversing the on-ramp to Level 5 SAE autonomy will likely put one in mind of the explosion of the internet in the late 1990s. (The Society of Automotive Engineers has established five levels of vehicular autonomy; Level 5, at which the car completely drives itself, is the highest.) The transformation will be fast and furious, so to speak, and the law will have to chase after and catch up. What will be affected won’t just be one or two obvious areas of the law, such as product liabilit y and regulatory oversight. The impact will be greater than that—which is why our firm, Baker Donelson, has assembled a multidisciplinary team of attorneys to address virtually every legal facet that autonomous vehicles (AVs) will affect. Among them:

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

Next-gen 5G cellular connectivity is just starting to roll out across major U.S. cities. Because AVs will need to “talk” to a variety of infrastructure—traffic lights, toll readers, other vehicles—5G coverage is critical. Current 4G LTE connectivity is simply not fast enough to transmit and receive the massive amount of data necessary to make a system of AVs operable. Tele coms w ill n e e d to has ten the rollout of their 5G networks to support AVs and other “Internet of Things” components, all of which will compete for bandwidth. As such, these companies must look beyond their current tower-based coverage models toward distributed networks— which then raises the question of infrastructure itself.


will be a greater shift toward drop-off and pickup lanes (like the ride-share lanes increasingly common at airports today), rather than expansive parking lots whose sizes are based on the square footage of the establishment they ser ve. Parking decks in of fice buildings and multi-family residential complexes will begin to be repurposed; fewer homes will have a garage. This exciting transformation in land use will be managed largely at the local level, and cities at the forefront will be the first to reap the true benefits of the AV revolution.

Infrastructure

Government at all levels, from Washington down to local municipalities, will have to work with private companies to build out the infrastructure required for AVs to communicate. There will be antennae everywhere, almost literally— atop streetlights, telephone poles, and traffic signals, even embedded in roads— to ensure no dead zones. Governments simply don’t have the funds to cover this colossal expense. Public—private partnerships make the most sense for this piece of the puzzle, so governments will have to permit such collaboration— and then encourage it.

Data Privacy and Hacking

AVs are essentially computers on wheels. Even non-autonomous vehicles have been hacked; consider the nowfamous example of a Jeep being shut down on a highway in St. Louis (in a controlled experiment, it bears mentioning) in 2015. One of the biggest hurdles for carmakers and component suppliers, then, will be reassuring customers that the vehicles they’re riding in cannot be hacked. That will require a tight partnership bet ween telecom companies and infrastructure providers, as well as mandates that customers religiously update their cars’ software (preferably over the air, rather than having to bring a vehicle into a dealership). Data privacy is a second concern. AVs will generate enormous amounts of data about vehicle locations, which creates a golden marketing opportunity. Say you’re in an AV that knows you stop at a certain coffee shop every morning on the way to work. On this day, though, it suggests you stop at a different place, and offers you a $2 coupon. Some might appreciate this; others will surely find it intrusive.

There are implications for the insurance industry as well. Although insurers have tried to lure customers with tracking devices in exchange for discounts (with little success), cars will now themselves generate granular data about time of use, miles driven,

Liability

routes taken, and more. Will customers want to trade this information for lower premiums? Automakers, on the other hand, will for the first time be sitting on a trove of valuable information with many potential buyers. Car companies will therefore need easily comprehensible privacy and data-sharing agreements for their customers to opt into or out of.

Real Estate

Beyond the obvious considerations presented by connectivity-boosting antennae in ever more numerous locations, both public and private, in the long term people’s real estate needs will change, and thus so will zoning and land-use laws. At present, most car owners use their vehicle for only a small portion of the day. Did you drive to work today? If so, what’s your car doing? Sitting in a garage for eight hours or so. As AVs become more popular, the great American tradition of car ownership will dwindle. Autonomous vehicles will likely be owned primarily by large fleet companies and summoned at will— similar to what happens now with carsharing companies, but with far more availability and consistency. When fewer people own cars, there

accidents and deaths will plummet. Until every last AV achieves Level 5— and even after, of course—accidents will occur. While today the question of who or what is liable for a wreck is relatively straightforward, it gets blurry with AVs. Assume, for instance, that your AV (which you aren’t driving) runs a red light and hits a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Are you at fault, like a dog owner whose pooch bites the mailman? Is the carmaker? Or is it the Tier 1 supplier of the AV software and components, which the automaker bought off the shelf and installed in its vehicle? What if the car company specified what kind of AV software it wanted, down to the lines of code, and the sof tware developer simply provided it without real-world testing? Right now, in most states, the assignment of liability would be left to the courts, as the federal government hasn’t spoken on the issue. All these questions, to be worked out in the years ahead, will af fect the law in ways great and small. The journey is only beginning—and law yers who stay keenly at tuned to these developments will be best equipped to help provide directions. bestlawfirms.usnews.com

OU MIGHT HAVE SEEN

a drone smacking a car ’s windshield in a recent Farmer’s Insurance commercial. Perhaps you saw a drone, as one of the authors did, hovering over a winer y in the Midwest countryside. Or maybe you attended an outdoor wedding recorded by a camera drone flying overhead (a real case, discussed below). All these examples illustrate drones’ increasing prevalence—a trend that brings with it risks to insurers, the insured, and the public at large. As is often the case with emerging r isk s , g ove r n m e n t r e g ula t i o n is struggling to keep up: The Federal Aviation Adminis tration changed its drone regulations in 2016 and has already issued two more sets of proposals that, broadly speaking, attempt to maximize drones’ utility while minimizing their risks. Insurers are likewise expanding the use of drones in their everyday business (to inspect disaster damage, for example), but at the same time considering excluding drones from some policies while adding

coverage in others. Cases involving drone-related uses and liabilities, meanwhile, are working their way through the courts. We discuss these developments below, with a focus on aerial (as opposed to aquatic) drones.

Increasing Drone Use

Aerial drones, also called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are a component of “unmanned aircraft systems,” which also encompass ground control, data linkage, and related equipment. Drones have military, commercial, and recreational applications; they’ve also spawned new industries, as we’ll get to. The U.S. military was the earliest user of drones and related technologies, and drone tech has been deployed by the armed forces of numerous countries— consider the incident a few months ago when the U.S. Navy used electronic jamming equipment to take down an Iranian drone it viewed as a threat to a ship stationed in the Strait of Hormuz near the Persian Gulf. Disaster investigation and recovery are among the most common uses of

"Insurers were responsible for 17 percent of commercial drone use in 2018." drones, which explains why the insurance industry plays such an important part in expanding their commercial role: Insurers were responsible for 17 percent of commercial drone use in 2018.1 A drone can safely and efficiently assess damage when disaster conditions make it difficult for field adjusters to reach a site. For this reason, in early 2019, the FAA gave State Farm nationwide permission to fly drones during natural disasters, even beyond the operator’s line of sight or in populated areas, which the agency had not previously permitted. Insurers used UAVs during the 2018 Camp and Woolsey wildfires in California, as well as after a series of deadly tornadoes in Alabama in 2019. In Europe, drones helped first responders target their efforts to save Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris during the April fire there. As fires burn in the Amazon, drones take

photos. They fly over disaster areas to assist journalists’ reporting and help responders locate those trapped by lava or landslide. They can deliver medical supplies to areas otherwise accessible only by canoe. 2 Drones’ nonmilitary uses go well beyond disaster response and include a variet y of commercial and even ar tistic applications. Construction companies use UAVs to sur vey job sites and determine whether a building surface is level. Real estate firms employ them to photograph every angle of a completed project for advertisements. Insurers use them to manage property risks: UAVs can image and create a 3D map of an insured property, offering insight into the vulnerabilities of low-lying areas. One equipped with an infrared camera can see wet spots on a roof that might lead to damage.

UAVs performed reconnaissance for one hedge fund allowing them to see excess inventory cause by a railway strike, enabling the fund to successfully short the sector. 3 Drone enthusiasts can play ThunderDrone, in which participants fly real drones in simulated combat. Drones recently spray-painted a mural in Turin, Italy.4 In addition, drones have spawned entire industries. Building sof tware f o r dr o n e s a n d d e f e n din g f r o m aerial incursions have each become a niche business. Companies sell UAV detection equipment that can prevent drones from entering sensitive or private areas. A company under the auspices of Alphabet (the Google parent) recently released an app to help manage UAV traffic in Australia. The drone detection and management industry was estimated to be worth $1 billion in 2017.5 In the U.S., Las Vegas police subcontracted with a drone defense company, Dedrone, to assist with security during the final 2016 presidential debate. Dedrone also provided security for the annual global conference in Davos, Swit zerland, and has a contract with Fort McNair in Washington, D.C.

FAA Drone Regulations

Regulators are trying to keep up with it all. In 2016, the FA A issued rules concerning recreational and commercial UAVs. Less than three year s later, th e a genc y release d proposals that would signif icantly change the regulator y landscape. In general, these new proposals are designed to subject all commercial and recreational uses to a single regulator y scheme, and to expand the permit ted uses of UAVs. Such expansion will in turn depend on the development of “remote ID” te chnolo g y enablin g th e FA A to identify and track drones as they fly, much like it does now with airplanes. 6 The 2016 regulations (14 C.F.R. §

107.11-51) apply to “small unmanned aircrafts”—those weighing less than 55 pounds including cargo—but exempt drones operated by hobbyists. These non-hobbyist drones are heavily regulated. They must: • fly at or below 400 feet, and at or below 100 miles per hour; • fly within the operator’s line of sight and only during the day; • fly only in areas that are away from other aircraf t, non-par ticipating individuals, stadiums, sporting events, and emergency response efforts. Drone operators may apply for waivers on some of these restrictions. Th e res tr ic tions , though , may change for all operators based on regulatory actions the FAA initiated in early 2019. The agency proposed to allow commercial and recreational UAVs to fly at night and over nonpar ticipating individuals, albeit with some restrictions remaining. 7 Separately, the FAA has requested comment from the public to help inform future regulations regarding public safety and national security concerns related to UAVs.8 These future rules might include restrictions on the types of cargo drones may carry, or limitations on their speed and altitude. These two proposals would bring hobbyist and commercial drones under the same regulatory umbrella, clearing the way for expanded use of commercial drones by reducing the likelihood of hobbyist interference. The FAA has not yet issued final rules for night use or operations over people, nor issued proposed rulemaking stemming from its request for public input . No regulations increasing flexibilit y for drone users will be finalized until remote ID technology is developed. Although Congress directed the FA A to promulgate remote ID regulations by July 2018, it has not yet done so. UAV operators will therefore continue to work under the 2016 rules for the foreseeable future.

State and local governments have a role here as well, albeit one limited by federal preemption. In Singer v. Newton, a federal district court struck down 9 sections of a local ordinance in New ton, Massachuset ts, about drones because it conf lic ted with federal regulations. Specifically, the ordinance required that hobbyists register their drones with the cit y an d prohibite d op eration out of the operator’s line of sight without express permission or a permit from the city. The rule’s stated objective was to protec t the privac y of cit y r e s i d e n t s . T h e c o u r t ’s o p i n i o n highlighted that “a wholesale ban on drone use” would conflict with federal law and be preempted, but also noted that the FAA has said that state and other privac y laws may provide protec tion for individuals whose privac y has been af fec ted by others’ use of a UAV. Although th e FA A w ill remain th e pr imar y regulator y authorit y for drone operators, we expect further disputes i n t h is a r ea s t e m m i n g f r o m t h e interplay between federal regulation and state and local laws.

UAV Risks Create an Insurance Need

Drones present real risks. The risk of property damage, for example: In September 2017, a U.S. Army security helicopter was accidentally damaged by a UAV during the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York.10 There’s a risk of bodily harm as well: In 2016, a wedding guest was a ll e g e dl y injure d w h e n t h e photographer’s drone hit her, costing her the sight in one eye. She filed a negligence suit against the photography studio, which led to related insurance litigation discussed below. Drones also present a significant risk of business-interruption loss even in the absence of property damage. Three major airports experienced multiple

shutdowns in late 2018 and early 2019 when UAVs flew into restricted airspace. 11 Gat wick and Heathrow airports in the United Kingdom, and Newark Liberty International in New Jersey, grounded flights and stranded hundreds of thousands of people out of concern that the drones would attack planes. To sum up, drone-related risk s include: • first-par t y loss, including harm to the UAV or harm to the UAV operator ’s own proper t y, and r e s u l t i n g i n t e r r u p t i o n of t h e company’s business; • third-par t y liabilit y, including bodily injury, property damage, liability for invasion of privacy, and third-party business interruption; and • malicious attacks through hijacking and c yber-hacking, which can result in both first-party losses and third-party liabilities. Although the FAA does not require drone owners and operators to carry insurance, it has highlighted the potential liabilit y drone operators face and has encouraged them to secure appropriate coverage.12 We focus next on insurance coverage for risks to commercial drone owners and operators, and to third parties. Insurers have begun to address drone-related risks specif ically in cer t ain p olicies . Som e expressl y exclude drone-related losses and liabilities, while others specifically cover such risks, whether as standalone specialty policies or through endorsements of other policies. Co m m e r c i a l G e n e r a l L i a b i l i t y p olicies (CGL s) t y pic all y cont ain aviation exclusions, which at least one court has applied to drones. In Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance Co. v. Hollycal Production, the case in which a drone allegedly hit a wedding guest, a federal cour t granted summar y judgment 13 for the insurer (the motion

was unopposed) based on the plain language of the polic y ’s aircraf t exclusion. Around 2015, standard CGL policies began to incorporate specific drone or “unmanned aircraft” exclusions. However, some Business O w n e r p o l i ci e s (w h i ch co m b i n e b o t h f i r s t- p a r t y p r o p e r t y a n d general liability coverage) also offer endorsements designed to provide coverage for drone-related losses, including first-party loss due to theft and third-party liability.14 Mos t c y b er-insurer s have not yet specifically addressed drones or aircraft-related losses and liabilities. To the extent that the cyber-hacking of a drone caused physical damage, many cyber-insurers could point to exclusions in their standard cyber policies. For example, a recent cyber form from the insurer AIG contains an exclusion for “Loss… arising out of, based upon, or attributable to any Bodily Injury or Property Damage.”15 On the other hand, most cyber policies should respond to cybersecurity breaches that expose or damage data collected or transmitted via the unmanned aircraft system. If hackers breached the communication s ys tem connec ting the op erator and the drone, they could capture proprietary information gathered by the latter—but some cyber policies specifically exclude the unauthorized collection of information under certain circumstances. For instance, a form from insurer Chubb excludes coverage for “the unauthorized or surreptitious collection of Personal Information by the Insured or the failure to provide adequate notice that such information is being collected.” Major media insurers’ forms generally provide coverage for claims arising out of the “gathering” of material by the policyholder or on its behalf, without limitation as to how such material is gathered. That means the policyholder may be protected under its media policy for claims alleging that drone

use resulted in a violation of privacy, including wrongful entry or trespass by “manned or unmanned aircraft.” Policyholders using drones to collect information should be sure their media policies cover information gathering regardless of how it’s collected. Aviation insurance is also available to cover both first-party losses and thirdparty liabilities from UAVs, either as part of a general aviation policy or as a freestanding UAV-specific policy. Dronespecific insurance t ypically covers both first- and third-party risks. Once such policy is offered by a company called Verifly, which provides ondemand commercial and recreational UAV insurance based on the location and duration of the drone operation, sometimes for as short as a one-hour flight. Others offer coverage for firstparty losses due to equipment failure, damage to the drone, and injury to the drone operator. AIG also provides the option to add cyber and other coverage for commercial drone use. Many other insurers, from droneinsurance.com to AGCS, offer UAV-specific coverage.

Conclusion

Co m p a n i e s u s i n g d r o n e s f o r commercial purposes confront rapidly evolving technology and business opportunities, changing regulations, increased exposure to liability and firstparty loss, and an insurance market that is adapting to all these emerging and evolving risks. Even companies that do not themselves use drones can face UAV-related risk exposure. As with other emerging risks, some insurers are in the process of attempting to exclude drone-related risks from standard forms in property, general liability, and other traditional insurance lines while offering new specialty products or specific endorsements covering those risks (for an additional premium). These newly minted exclusions and coverage grants can vary widely. They warrant close review and expert attention.

litigation, judicial recusal—or lack thereof—can affect the public’s perception of the judiciary as unbiased and objective. This past September 14, on the eve of the bellwether opioidlitigation trial in Ohio, defendant giant retail pharmacy chains and drug distributors filed a motion to recuse the presiding federal district judge from the highly charged case. The stakes were high; just days earlier, a separate state case in Oklahoma resulted in a $572 million judgment against opioid manufacturer Johnson & Johnson. Stakes were high as well in a recent Illinois class action, in which a state Supreme Cour t justice refused to recuse himself from litigation involving State Farm following a $1.2 billion verdict against the insurance giant for replacing genuine manufacturer automotive parts with af termarket parts for millions of policyholders. The judge, Lloyd Karmeier, had accepted “dark money” contributions from State Farm during his election campaign immediately prior to his decision—yet he remained on the case and, in fact, cast the deciding vote to overturn the verdict. Protracted litigation over Judge Karmeier’s refusal to recuse himself was later settled for $250 million. (“Dark money” refers to campaign

co n t r i b u t i o n s f u n n e l e d t h r o u g h nonprofit groups that are not required to list their donors. The actual source of the funds is therefore deliberately withheld from the public eye, and not revealed in campaign disclosures or to the media.) The rules governing recusal merit closer scrutiny. Recently, the American Bar Association clarified one such rule regarding judges’ ties to lawyers, and what sorts of conduct would demand recusal. Model Code of Judicial Conduct Rule 2.11 states that impartiality can be reasonably questioned when the judge, his or her domestic partner, or a “person within the third degree of relationship of either of them,” is a party or lawyer involved in the proceedings. “J u d g e s n e e d n o t d i s q u a l i f y themselves if a law yer or par t y is an acquaint ance, nor mus t th ey disclose acquaintanceships to the other lawyers or parties,” the sevenpage ABA memo, released this past September 7, stated. “Whether judges must disqualif y themselves when a party or lawyer is a friend or shares a close personal relationship with the judge — or should instead take the lesser step of disclosing the friendship or close personal relationship to the other lawyers and parties—depends on the circumstances.”


ISTOCK.COM/JACOBLUND

"Shell corporations and dark-money groups that aren’t required to disclose their donors gave more than $176 million to the type of political action committees known as Super PACs." Acquaintances are t ypically people with whom a relationship is “coincidental or relatively superficial,” a c c o r d i n g t o t h e A B A’s F o r m a l Opinion 488. Generally, they might be individuals who run into each other at their children’s school functions or at local businesses, or who socialize with mutual friends. In the context of the legal community, the opinion m e ntio ns th os e w h o at te n d th e same bar groups or who may have represented co-parties in litigation at one point. “Generally, neither the judge nor the lawyer seeks contact with the other, but they greet each other amicably and are cordial when their lives intersect,” the memo added. In the Illinois litigation, the plaintiffs alleged that Judge Karmeier had associated with top State Farm executives outside of court. He also accepted dark money from State Farm through tort-reform organizations that served as conduits for contributions in his race, which cost millions of dollars.

T h e A B A’ s M o d e l R u l e s o f Judicial Conduc t do not spell out when recusal is appropriate under these circumstances, so it is left to the judge’s discretion. There is no recourse, even if the judge’s decision appears to stretch the rules or a conflict is apparent. As many as 38 states hold elections, either partisan or non-, for judges. What ’s really at stake, then, is the public’s confidence in the integrity and independence of the judiciar y in the absence of election-funding transparency. What happens to such confidence when judges’ campaigns are being bankrolled by organizations that dole out money to like-minded candidates for various offices? During the 2018 election c ycle, the Center for Responsive Politics repor ted, shell corporations and d a r k- m o n e y g r o u p s t h a t a r e n ’ t required to disclose their donors gave more than $176 million to the type of political action committees

known as Super PACs. “The surge in dark-money giving came as Super PACs spent nearly $818 million in the 2018 elections,” the Center noted, “a monumental increase from the $345 million they spent in the previous midterm cycle.” C l e a r l y, s i z a b l e d a r k- m o n e y donations become an issue of greater salience when they case doubt on a judge’s abilit y to be objec tive. Those who donate large sums do so to benefit themselves in some way; it is not a selfless act. All 50 states require individual donors who make campaign contributions outside of PACs to do so openly, and the list of donors (and amounts) is made public, as well it should be. Yet Congress and the cour ts still allow dark money to undermine the integrit y and independence of the judiciar y through its shroud of secrecy. Until legislators and judges take steps to prevent dark-money donations outright, the ABA and state bar groups should formulate specific opinions as to how such donations to ju d g es o u ght to b e han dl e d. Judicial candidates themselves should consider meaningful disclosure by taking a “no dark money” pledge when running, so that even the appearance of propriety, as required by judicial rules, is upheld. The wink-and-nod understanding of philosophic or ideological expectations mus t come to an end, so judges will fe el comp elle d to disqualif y themselves from court decisions that affect companies’ bottom lines. The administration of justice through the courts is where everyone is equal before the law. Dark money undermines that fundamental constitutional right when donors are unknown, and contributions are unknowable.

The DOJ assessed a fine of over $296 million but required the company to pay only about $81 million while crediting $214 million paid to Brazilian authorities. 4 Notably, despite the fact that the DOJ deemed Technip to be a recidivist, having settled in 2010 regarding a similar bribery scheme in Nigeria, 5 it appears to have credited Technip for payment of the Brazilian fines. 6 The DOJ’s April 2019 agreement with Standard Chartered Bank, also

In that settlement, arising from an investigation into sanctions involving Iran, the DOJ assessed a fine of $480 million, but initially required SCB to pay only about $54 million while crediting nearly $427 million in monet ar y penalties paid to state, federal, and U.K. enforcement authorities. 7 The DOJ contemplated f ull credit for those penalties despite taking the position that SCB made “inadequate disclosures…prior to entering the [original] 2012 [Deferred Prosecution Agreement] of known deficiencies in SCB’s sanctions compliance program.”8 Other recent resolutions, including agreements with Fresenius Medical Care9 and Petrobras,10 similarly appear

to signal the DOJ’s willingness not to pile on. The department’s policy is consistent with the overall trend toward more global anticorruption enforcement and multinational information sharing and coordination. In 2017 alone, the DOJ reportedly received cooperation from approximately 20 countries in cases brought under the Foreign Corrupt Prac tices Ac t (FCPA). 11 In cer t ain ci rc u m s t a n ce s , t h is co o p e r a t i o n may lead to the DOJ’s deference to foreign enforcement authorities. For example, on August 20, 2018, the DOJ informed Güralp Systems Limited, a British engineering firm, that it would n ot p r o s e cu te t h e co m p a ny f o r possible FCPA and money-laundering

violations involving alleged corrupt payments to an earthquake official in South Korea.12 The DOJ indicated that “not withstanding evidence of violations of the FCPA,” it had closed its inquir y, in part because of “the fact that GSL, a U.K. company with its principal place of business in the U.K., is the subject of an ongoing parallel investigation by the U.K.’s Serious Fraud Of f ice for violations of law relating to the same conduct and has committed to accepting responsibility for that conduct with the SFO.” 13 Another mat ter sugges t s that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission may be taking a similar approach. On September 4, 2018, ING Groep N.V., a Netherlands-based financial-services company, announced that it had agreed to pay a fine of €675 million ($780 million) and disgorgement of €100 million ($115 million) to the Dutch Public Prosecution Ser vice to resolve “investigations regarding various requirements for client onboarding and the prevention of money laundering and corrupt practices.” 14 ING indicated that as a result of the

settlement agreement, it expected to resolve an investigation by the SEC “without further payment or the imposition of further conditions.” 15 I n d e e d , t h e f o ll o w in g day, I N G announced that it had received a formal notification from the SEC that the agency had closed its investigation into the bank without enforcement action.16

Takeaways

These re cent resolutions with Technip, SCB, and others seem to indicate that the DOJ is applying its policy against piling on and that companies facing cross-border investigations have a greater opportunity to reach final, comprehensive resolutions of those mat ters in a fair and coordinated fashion. In any investigation, businesses should account for the high likelihood that enforcement authorities across jurisdictions are sharing information and that the company may face simult aneous requests from multiple jurisdictions. Although some countries, including in Europe, generally will not prosecute a person or company for conduct that

was already prosecuted elsewhere,17 there is no internationally recognized principle of double jeopardy, so the possibility of successive investigations by multiple authorities remains. Still, in the DOJ context, companies should consider the potential benefits of encouraging investigators, as early as possible, to coordinate with other interested authorities. In particular, timing may be crucial. In his speech unveiling the policy against piling on, then–Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that the DOJ would not “look kindly” on companies that came to the department “only after making inadequate disclosures to secure lenient penalties with other agencies or foreign governments.” While it remains to be seen how the policy will continue to develop, it is clear that a piecemeal defense of uncoordinated investigations around the globe wastes corporate resources and could compromise a company’s position if and when the time comes for settlement discussions.

HE EMERGENCE OF

the #MeToo movement has finally given sexual assault and abuse cases the public attention they so richly deserve. Victims, for their part, are bringing more cases into the civil courts against both the perpetrator of the abuse and the person or entity responsible for supervising or controlling the perpetrator. All this newfound media coverage has spurred a variety of opinions and biases among the public; civil sexual abuse lawyers need to be cognizant of these and address them in court.

The #MeToo movement has brought unprecedented attention to the problem of sexual assault and abuse. Litigating civil cases along these lines can be tricky, though. Here’s an overview.

Civil Versus Criminal Cases

“So she’s just suing for money?” “Shouldn’t this be something the criminal courts deal with?” “Why are we here if the perpetrator is already in prison?” These questions are inevitable during voir dire in every civil sexual abuse trial. #MeToo and the attendant media attention have made jurors acutely aware that sexual abuse lawsuits can lead to large financial rewards. This awareness is both positive an d n e gati ve. Juror s un der s t an d the significant impact sexual abuse can have on a victim —a potential lifetim e’s wor th of dama ge — b ut they also see a suit as a potential moneymaker and are often skeptical of a plaintiff ’s motivations. Yo ur vo ir dire m us t t h e re f o re home in on these issues to address p ote nt ia l b ias e s a n d ske p t icism .

A juror questionnaire is your best tool for this, and both plaintiff and defense counsel should be interested in learning how prospective jurors feel about civil sexual abuse lawsuits and which publicized sexual abuse cases, if any, they’ve followed. In some instances, of course, the perpetrator of the abuse will also face criminal charges, and the presence (or absence) of an underlying criminal case can have a significant impact on the ci v il trial. The prejudicial ef fec t of juror s learning that the abuse was either not repor ted to law enforcement— or that it was, but authorities chose not to pursue criminal charges—greatly outweighs the relevance this information could have. The motivations of a victim not to report, or of law enforcement not to pursue a criminal case, do not turn on the truthfulness of the victim or the legitimacy of the abuse. Judges will often grant motions in limine to exclude information about criminal charges unless a criminal plea or conviction has already occurred, making the conviction admissible per collateral estoppel principles. Collateral estoppel is available to preclude litigation in a civil or criminal proceeding of issues determined in a prior criminal action: “Any issue necessarily decided in a prior criminal trial resulting in a conviction is conclusively determined as to the parties if it is involved in a subsequent civil action.” McGowan v.

40

City of San Diego, (1989) 208 Cal.App.3d 890, 894-95 (collateral estoppel may result from prior criminal proceeding if offense was serious so that defendant was motivated to litigate fully, there was full and fair trial, issue was necessarily decided, and party to be estopped was party or privy to party at criminal trial).

Consent

Most sexual abuse cases do not involve physical force, violence, or expressed threats. More of ten, the victim is “groomed” by the perpetrator to gain the victim’s trust with intent to manipulate, coerce, even brainwash the victim into a sexual “relationship.” The perpetrator is of ten someone with a close connection to the victim: a teacher, say, or a coach, mentor, or religious leader. Jurors may think lack of force is signif icant and could therefore mischaracterize the abuse as “welcomed” by the victim, or as part of a “voluntary” relationship. But there’s nothing voluntary about it. Perpetrators manipulate and exploit their victims into believing the relationship is somehow acceptable or that the victim has no choice but to go along with it. This is especially pronounced in cases involving adults preying on minors. Consent evidence is never overt and usually takes the form of questions that hint at the victim’s participation in the abuse. (For example: Asking a victim why he or she didn’t say no, or

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

didn’t fight back, is considered consent evidence.) Some states now bar consent evidence and arguments entirely in civil sexual abuse trials involving children. California, for instance, has recently eliminated consent arguments in sexual abuse cases involving minors passing two laws: Civil Code Section 1708.5.5 and Evidence Code Section 1106(c). The former states that “[c]onsent shall not be a defense in any civil action [for sexual battery] if the person who commits the sexual battery is an adult who is in a position of authority over the minor.” Section 1708.5.5(b) further states, “an adult is in a ‘position of authority’ if he or she, by reason of that position, is able to exercise undue influence over a minor. A ‘position of authority’ includes, but is not limited to, a natural parent, stepparent, foster parent, relative, partner of any such parent or relative, caretaker, youth leader, recreational director, athletic manager, coach, teacher, counselor, therapist, religious leader, doctor, employee of one of those aforementioned persons, or coworker.” This position was further solidified by California lawmakers with the addition of subsec tion (c) to the California Evidence Code Sec tion 1106, which states that “evidence of the plaintiff minor’s sexual conduct with the defendant adult shall not be admissible to prove consent by the plaintiff or the absence of injury to the plaintiff.”


Sexual History Evidence

While most discovery procedures are available as a mat ter of right, in sexual abuse or assault cases a court order is often required before attempting to conduct discovery into the plaintif f ’s sexual conduct with individuals other than the alleged perpetrator of the abuse. California’s Code of Civil Procedure Section 2017.220 requires the party seeking sexual histor y information to f irst obtain a cour t order by demonstrating the ex traordinar y circumstances justifying such discovery, including: (1) specific facts showing good cause for discover y and (2) that the information sought is relevant to the subject matter of the action. A heightened standard of “relevancy” is also required—see Mendez v. Superior Court (1988) 206 Cal.App.3d 557, 578 (refusing to allow discover y into a plaintif f ’s sex life where defendant’s claim of “relevancy” appeared speculative). Bare causation arguments alone are insufficient to overcome the requirements of Section 2017.220. See Barrenda L. v. Superior Court (1998) 65 Cal.App.4th 794: “The mere fact that a plaintiff has initiated an action seeking damages for extreme mental and emotional distress arising out of conduct of a sexual nature does not ipso facto provide ‘good cause’

for discovery of other sexual conduct.” The California case Knoettgen v. Superior Cour t explained that the legislative intent of “encouraging victims to come forward” was behind the enactment of Section 2017.220: “The discovery of sexual aspects of complainants’ lives… has the clear potential to discourage complaints and to annoy and harass litigants. That annoyance and discomfort, as a result of defendants’… inquiries, is unnecessary and deplorable.” [Knoettgen v. Superior Court (1990) 224 Cal. App. 3d 11, 13.] The use of evidence of a plaintiff’s

instances of plaintiff’s sexual conduct in order to prove consent by the plaintiff or the absence of injury to the plaintiff. Second, California Evidence Code Section 783 prohibits attacking the credibility of the plaintiff with evidence of the victim’s sexual conduct unless and until certain stringent measures are fulfilled. See Venus B. v. Venus A. (1990) 222 Cal.App.3d 931, 937 (affirming the trial court’s decision to foreclose the defendant from inquiry into a child’s sexual history for purposes of attacking the child’s credibility—“[Defendant] failed to demonstrate the type of ‘ex traordinar y circumstances’ in which inquiry into the minor’s sexual behavior might be permitted”). U nf o r t u n a t e l y, the crime of sexual abuse will likely never be eradicated completely. However, hopefully, the continuation of the #MeToo movement will provide victims with the support and courage to face their abusers in court and provide legal protection with the enactment of new laws.

"Consent evidence is never overt and usually takes the form of questions that hint at the victim’s participation in the abuse." sexual behavior is more often harassing and intimidating than genuinely probative, and the potential for prejudice outweighs whatever probative value it may have. Absent extraordinary circumstances (and a court order), inquiry into those areas should be barred, both in discovery and at trial. Id. Special evidentiary rules have also been enacted in California to protect against the improper use of sexual histor y evidence. First, California Evidence Code Section 1106 prohibits the use of opinion evidence, reputation evidence, and evidence of specific

Q&A With Spencer Crowley, Nora Martins, and Joshua Rinesmith In big cities, there has been a surge to build to keep up with demand and rising rent rates. What sort of creative efforts have been made to accommodate demand where space may not be immediately available?

While the transfer of development rights (colloquially known as “air rights”) in New York City has historically been a way to increase development potential when land is scarce, we are seeing increased interest in these types of transactions that involve land owned by public-housing authorities. In December 2018, the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) put forth a plan known as NYCHA 2.0 in an effort to raise billions of dollars to address the $24 billion in capital improvements needed for NYCHA’s public-housing developments. The plan identified over 80 million square feet in unused development rights generated by NYCHA land and included the transfer of at least a portion of these development rights as a means to generate revenue to help fund these capital needs. Private developers have started pursuing these transactions,

which require approval from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development pursuant to Section 18 of the Housing Act of 1937, but are not dispositions subject to the City's formal public review process. Other creative ef for ts that have emerged in response to the sk yrocketing demand for housing and rising rents include the use of micro-units and co-living solutions to create additional density within the same buildable square footage. Coliving, which consists of communityfocused shared living, is one of the fastest-growing housing sectors in major metropolitan areas and generally provides more af fordable housing options than more traditional housing typology. As noted below, however, this new type of housing presents regulatory challenges. In addition, the increased use of modular housing construction, which is generally quicker to complete and less exp ensi ve to cons tr uc t than traditional methods of housing construction, is being used to combat high development costs. - Joshua Rinesmith and Nora Martins, Real Estate Partners

Have state and local regulations, inspection requirements, and zoning laws made the practice more complex in the past 20 years or is it roughly the same?

Land use and zoning practice in New York City has become increasingly complex within the last 20 or so years, for both residential and non-residential development alike. On the residential front, the City has adopted two of the country’s most groundbreaking programs intended to spur the creation of affordable housing. The first of these was the voluntary Inclusionary Housing Program, established in 1987, which provides floor-area bonuses for the creation of permanently affordable housing within development projects. More recently, in 2016, the City adopted the Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program, which requires that a certain percentage of residential floor area be set aside for permanently affordable housing when there is a rezoning or certain other discretionary approvals that increase residential density. There is no doubt that these programs have added a significant number of permanently affordable rental units to


the City’s housing stock; however, these programs have also added complex regulations and necessary approvals from additional agencies that are challenging even for sophisticated developers. For non-residential construction, recent changes to the City's zoning resolution have been adopted that intend to protect industrially zoned land from being developed with certain types of commercial uses the City has determined applies pressure on the City’s traditional manufacturing sector. These regulations require special permits (which are subject to the City’s formal public review process, including City Council approval) for all hotels in manufacturing districts and for self-storage facilities in certain widely mapped designated areas. While these are new regulations that add to the complexity of developing such uses in New York City, there are other portions of the City’s zoning resolution that are instead so antiquated that they present challenges to existing and evolving business types. Such businesses include physical fitness centers, which can help combat the abundance of retail vacancies but require a lengthy public review process, and new businesses that are evolving to assist in fulfilling the e-commerce supply chain (such as smaller scale distribution and warehouse facilities that need to be located closer to nonmanufacturing areas where deliveries are actually being made). The City is recognizing the need to have more fluid zoning regulations that can adapt to changes in the commercial and manufacturing sectors, but the process for modifying the zoning resolution can be cumbersome.

In addition, the New York State le gislature enac te d the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (known as rent regulation reform) in June 2019. This series of bills created additional protections for tenants in rent-stabilized housing but also included additional tenant protections for all rental apartment including nonrent regulated units. Initial feedback from prac titioners and landlords suggests that these regulations will make it more difficult to turn over units and will potentially disincentivize capital improvements. - Joshua Rinesmith and Nora Martins, Real Estate Partners

2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Litigation – Bankruptcy

Q&A With Robert Richards, Samuel Maizel, and Tania Moyron Can you speak to an experience where you helped a client through bankruptcy and they were better off for it?

We currently represent Verity Health Systems and various related entities as their lead counsel in the secondlargest hospital chain Chapter 11 filing ever. Verity has more than $1.4 billion of debt, and many complex challenges arose, requiring strategic maneuvering and tenacity, which ultimately led to all the hospitals keeping their doors open and preserving thousands of jobs and critical health care access to residents in the community. The six hospitals in the Verity system had been financially stressed for decades, but issues related to the California Attorney General’s oversight of nonprofit hospitals had caused every effort to transfer them to a more financially viable operator failed. The most unique issues related to the transfer of two hospitals in bankruptcy to Santa Clara County, including the scope of the powers of the AG over the sale of nonprofit health care assets in bankruptcy. The

46

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

AG’s power over sales of nonprofit hospitals is virtually beyond challenge outside of bankruptcy, and the AG frequently imposes onerous financial and operational conditions on hospital buyers. In very few cases have parties challenged the AG’s powers in hospital bankruptcies or discussed the unique Bankruptc y Code provisions that address the sale of nonprofit assets in bankruptcy. Dentons crafted unique, innovative legal arguments pursuant to section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code to neuter the AG’s ability to review the sale. This resulted in a sale, which had previously proven impossible. The Bankruptcy Court consistently agreed with the Dentons’ arguments, overruling repeated efforts by the AG to derail the sale. The subsequent District Court appeal was voluntarily dismissed by the AG after Dentons filed a motion to dismiss, pursuant to section 363(m) of the Bankruptcy Code. Additionally, because of the inability of the AG to impose conditions on the County, Verity was paid significantly more for assets than would have been possible if a buyer had been subject to the AG’s oversight. This has resulted in a much greater likelihood


of full payment on over $450 million of secured debt and of some recovery for unsecured creditors. Additionally, because the AG did not have the right to review the sale since it was a sale to the County, a public entity, the sale closed approximately four months sooner, resulting in savings of approximately $50 million for the benefit of unsecured creditors. Had the deal not completed, at least one of the hospitals (and possibly both) would probably have closed, resulting the loss of significant access to critical health care in the community and job termination for thousands.

Bankruptcy filings have been trending downward, and according to some it is at a 10-year low. Do you find this trend concerning and can you speak to why this may be occurring?

The reduction in recent years in commercial Chapter 11 filings has been driven by a number of factors, including low interest rates, multiple liquidity and refinancing sources competing against each other, an overall strong US economy, covenant lite deals, and the cost, time, and risks of a Chapter 11 process compared to some other alternatives for restructuring. That said, there has been a material increase in year-over-year commercial Chapter 11 filings in 2019, and those increases are likely to continue into 2020. Bankruptcy is just one way to implement a restructuring or liquidation. There are times when the tools of the Bankruptcy Code can be particularly helpful, such as the automatic stay against creditor enforcement actions; the abilit y to rejec t burdensome contracts and leases; the ability to sell

assets free and clear of interest, claims and liens; the ability to bind holdouts in a creditor class to the Chapter 11 plan treatment for the class; and the ability to cram down non-consenting classes of creditors or interest holders in a Chapter 11 plan. There are other times, however, where these tools are not all that important to implementing the restructuring or liquidation (for instance, a voluntary debt for equity swap to deleverage a balance sheet or a business that can be quickly liquidated or sold on an out-of-court basis). Even when Chapter 11s are filed, the game plan for those cases has tended to change. In earlier recessions, businesses would often file a free-fall bankruptcy to put the automatic stay against creditor enforcement actions in place and then explore reorganization and/ or sale options. For instance, a retailer may close some of its stores shortly after the filing and then take some time while staying in Chapter 11 to see if the remaining stores are profitable and can emerge from Chapter 11. The banks who made the original loan had large loan workout groups and would seek to restructure or otherwise maximize

recoveries on their troubled loans. In many recent Chapter 11s, the exit strategy is determined before the bankruptcy filing and is ready to be implemented early in the case, sometimes on a prepackaged or prenegotiated basis with the support of certain key creditors or a stalking horse bidder. Debt positions often are sold at a discount from the original holders to private-equity funds either before or during the restructuring process, some of whom may have a loan to own strategy and others of which may have an arbitrage strategy. Many retailers liquidate all of their locations shortly after the filing even though some of them are currently profitable because the lenders are more focused on the longer-term challenges facing brickand-mortar retail businesses. In conclusion, our view is Chapter 11s remain an important restructuring tool for certain situations, and the volume of bankruptcy filings will increase further into 2020. Other alternatives to Chapter 11 will also be utilized more than they were in prior recession cycles. - Robert Richards, Samuel Maizel and Tania Moyron

Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP 2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Litigation – Tax

Q&A With Michele Borens, Robert S. Chase II, James N. Mastracchio, As tax laws have changed over the past 20 years, have they been easy to adjust to? Are there any complications that arise for clients that might conduct business overseas and need to report domestic returns?

Changes in the way that companies operate business have likely had a greater impact on tax laws than tax laws have had on the operation of business. As commerce has become increasingly multinational, it has become difficult for companies to navigate the maze of international tax rules and ensure that their income is not subject to double taxation. You can see this in the current efforts of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Those efforts are nominally addressed to tax considerations related to the international digital economy, but now have the potential to impact all businesses engaged in international commerce. It is important to understand not just the rules today, but how potential changes to international tax rules, such as those being considered by the OECD, may impact their business going forward. For clients that conduct business overseas, the structure of the overseas operations and understanding

filing and compliance obligations is critical to ensure that income is not subject to multiple layers of tax. - Partner Robert S. Chase II.

How have recent interpretations of cryptocurrency gains and assets by the IRS created complications for you and your clients?

The IRS is focused on taxpayers' obligations to report cryptocurrency transactions on a yearly basis and to subject certain transactions to taxation. Last year, a major cr yptocurrency exchange was ordered to disclose inf o r m a t i o n o n in di v i d ua ls w h o engaged in a transactions over $20,000, resulting in more than 13,000 customers being notified that their data would be disclosed. In July, the IRS issued over 10,000 letters directly to cryptocurrency holder s informing them of their obligation to report taxable exchanges and to review prior-year returns for any noncompliance. In October, the IRS issued a revenue ruling and FAQ addressing virtual currency income tax–reporting issues. Of note, the IRS clarified that hard forks would be treated as a taxable event if the holder of the old currency receives new currency

after the fork. The IRS also issued draft Form 1040 schedules, which, if adopted, will require taxpayers to inform the IRS of cryptocurrency holdings even if there were no reportable transactions in that taxable year. It is clear that considerable efforts are underway to ensure that taxpayers are aware of their reporting obligations around cryptocurrency and that the IRS is on the lookout for the noncompliant taxpayer. - Partner James N. Mastracchio.

What have you found to be some of the greatest misconceptions that clients have about the tax code?

A common misconception is that an accounting method change can only be used to resolve routine matters, and clients often fail to consider one for complicated issues, including those raised by the IRS Exam. When the IRS is challenging a large deduction or proposing that income was reported erroneously, a settlement can of ten be reached, which both reduces the challenged amount and allows the additional income to be taken into account over a number of years using an accounting method change. Further, a taxpayer may thwart

Ellen McElroy, and Bradley M. Seltzer a likely adjustment if an accounting method change is f iled before an issue is raised by IRS. Because an accounting method change receives audit protec tion (that is, the IRS cannot raise the same issue on exam in an earlier year), any subsequent IRS Exam adjustment is prohibited. Additionally, when issues that are raise d in conse cuti ve IR S E xams without consistent resolution and/ or final determinations, such issues may be resolved with an accounting method change. By addressing IRS Exam matters with an accounting method change, the client receives certainty about the item’s treatment, and more importantly, receives greater input regarding its ultimate resolution. - Partner Ellen McElroy.

sales tax on sales into the state if they exceed certain dollar or transaction thresholds. In many states, these thresholds are low—having more than $100,000 in sales into the state or 100 transactions in the state. This decision has created a significant shift in sales tax collection practices for ecommerce companies and many of our clients. Companies may have state and local sales tax collection requirements in up to 45 different states. The Wayfair decision resulted in a signif icant amount of additional compliance and administration for companies. It requires determining the taxability of each item sold in every state, having a tax system or software that allows the company to charge and collect tax from customers, and handling the reporting and remittance of sales tax to each state. For ecommerce clients that may have only been collecting sales tax in a few states, the Wayfair decision radically changed these historical practices. - Partner Michele Borens.

How complicated is the cannabis tax process for growers, distributors, REITs, etc., as the adoption process expands?

With 33 states having legalized

medical cannabis in one form or another, the pace is increasingly quick, and 2020 looks like several other large states, including New York, New Jersey, and Florida may come on board. It makes sense to distinguish federal taxation issues from state and local tax issues. In the case of federal taxation, the principal problem is IRC Sec. 280E which disallows deductions or cost of goods sold offsets to income because cannabis is a Schedule 1 controlled substance. That produces federal tax rates of as high as 70 percent. This issue can only be resolved by repeal of Section 280E, creating an exception for states that have legalized cannabis along the lines of the STATES Act, or reclassifying cannabis to something other than a Class I or II controlled substance based on its medical efficacy and lack of harm to the consuming public. With respect to state and local taxes, the states are struggling with how to design tax systems. For example, California seeks to tax each stage of the process: growing, refining, testing, manufacturing, wholesale, and retail sales. The cumulative impact of all these taxes have led many consumers to seek out black-market products. Although an attempt to scale back taxes failed in the legislature this year, it is likely to be revived in the next term. In any event, the complexity of operating in and complying with a slew of differing and changing requirements is challenging. It will become more complex once cannabis companies engage in interstate commerce. - From Partner Bradley M. Seltzer. bestlawfirms.usnews.com

Q&A With Austin T. Fragomen, Jr.

Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, LLP 2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Immigration Law There has been a lot of talk over the past 20 years about changing immigration law, but not much sweeping change has actually taken place. How do you adjust to the policy memos that are often passed down in place of a change in the law?

With both the ongoing gridlock in Congress and policy issues being so complex from a legislative standpoint, Congress hasn’t been able to pass any comprehensive immigration changes since the Immigration Act of 1990. One of the ways to move policy when you cannot do it legislatively is through administrative processes, and there are various ways to do that. For example, you can publish a formal rule for review during a public comment period. This method is not popular as it can also be very controversial and timeconsuming. Another option is through a policy memo, which can provide analysis and/or recommendations with respect to an issue. A third method is through an executive order, but that tends to lead to litigation. To adjust to these changes, you must be observant. At Fragomen, we have ex tensive resources that monitor new legislative and regulator y developments and emerging trends worldwide, so we can

50

help our clients anticipate and prepare for changes accordingly.

What do you feel are the biggest misconceptions about immigration currently in the United States?

There are many misconceptions about immigration in the United St a t e s , b u t I b e l i e v e t h e m o s t significant one relates to the effect of immigration on the economy. The U.S., like most other developed nations, has a relatively low fertility rate, and the demographic reality is that the population primarily grows through immigration. The fact is that reducing immigration would negatively impact economic development in the U.S. because we would have an even greater shortage of workers than we do now. With unemployment at a low level, our economy needs more workers, par ticularly in f ields that require a high level of education or skill, such as those in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math. To reduce the number of immigrants entering the U.S. would be hugely problematic over time.

It doesn’t get a lot of headlines, but there is a skill gap between employer

U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “BEST LAW FIRMS” 2020

needs and the workforce. Employers turn to foreign labor to fill these needs for their businesses. How do you help in that process?

The primar y focus of our f irm is representing businesses and employers who have a need to hire foreign nationals because of the skills gap and are seeking to select the most qualified person for a specific job. Companies are commit ted to h ir in g t h e b e s t t a l e nt t h e y c a n . There’s a global competition for that talent, so immigration systems must be designed to enable employers to attract entrepreneurs and persons willing to make significant contributions to societ y, such as Nobel Prize winners. As repor ted in Forbes, immigrant s have been awarded nearly 40 percent of the Nobel Prizes won by Americans in Chemistr y, Medicine, and Physics since 2000. We h e l p i n t h a t p r o c e s s b y advising companies on immigration procedures, processes, and qualifications. We are trusted advisors in immigration strategy, so not only do we assist with individual cases, but we also help with future planning and other strategic needs. For example, if a company wants to establish a


new research facility, we can advise its leadership on which countries would be most at tractive from an immigration perspective, providing them with assurance that they will be able to hire the global talent they need to be successful.

What are some cases that you have worked on in the past year that you found to be most rewarding?

There is a wide array of cases that we find rewarding. For instance, providing pro bono support to unaccompanied minors from Central America and helping them to obtain asylum or Special Immigrant Juvenile Status is particularly rewarding. On the other side of the spectrum, working with persons who are well known, in the arts for instance, can be extremely rewarding. In these kinds of cases, we help these individuals navigate the immigration process and ultimately convince the immigration examiner that they are, in fact, a person of extraordinary ability. It really is a broad range of matters that has been rewarding to us. One of the things that we all enjoy in the immigration practice is that ultimately, the beneficiaries of our work are the individual immigrants, whether they’re CEOs of companies or pro bono clients.

Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP 2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Native American Law

What are some of the most pressing issues as they currently relate to Native American Law?

Some of the most pressing issues for tribes as it relates to Indian law include climate change, protection of tribal lands and resources, and the protection of tribal rights reserved by tribes through treaties and federal laws. We see litigation across the sp e c t r um a s s e r t in g t h a t a t r ib e is not eligible to have land placed into tr us t or that it s reser vation boundaries have been diminished or

This needs to change. If any fossil fuel development including pipelines can threaten or be a severe risk to a tribal community or its resources, then tribal consent should be required.

There has been a push to change the nicknames of sports teams with Native American monikers. Is this something that falls under the category of Native American Law and if so, how are disputes handled?

It does fall within Native American Law and policy. Tribes are increasingly taking steps to protect their cultural p r o p e r t y a n d a r e wo r k i n g w i t h lawmakers to repeal antiquated laws derogatory to tribes. With regard to nicknames of sports teams, there has been more progress through tribal polic y ef for ts working to change

state and local laws regarding these names than in legal challenges. This will continue to receive widespread attention by tribes and their members.

What are some things that you believe most people should know as it relates to Native Americans? Whether it is a common misconception, something that deserves attention or similar matter?

Tribes are sovereign governments that pre-date the Constitution. Many of the rights exercised by tribes were reser ved by them through treaties that ceded tens of millions of acres of land to the United States. Tribes are vibrant communities with governments that use tribal resources to provide education, social services, job training, and elder assistance to their citizens and often to non-citizens that they employ. What we k now through experience is that when tribes are empowered to address their challenges though self-determined approaches, they are far more successful politically, socially, and economically.


Q&A With Lindsay Conner

Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP

2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Entertainment Law - Motion Pictures & Television The internet and content creation tools have created a level of ease for people to create “fake” content. Deep fakes are becoming a serious threat for some and many of them involve copyrighted content. How do your teams stay up-to-date on these trends and monitor for stolen content. Practicing entertainment law in the 21st century means constantly working to master the oppor tunities and pitfalls that lie ahead, as technology and globalization transform the entertainment and media industries. To advance our clients’ business and legal goals, Manatt lawyers stay on top of what’s new today—and what’s likely to change in the next three to five years. For the theft or misappropriation of content, our primary role is to give clients strategic advice. Most clients prefer to police their own content and ask us for help when they find an infringing use. But as technology makes infringement easier, it’s harder to police. This has changed many clients’ strategies in the direction of getting content out to consumers as rapidly as possible and finding ways to monetize the content that doesn’t depend on keeping it locked up.

Has much changed in your practice as the industries make a shift from cable towards streaming services? First, it's important to note that cable and satellite delivery of content is still a huge business, ser ving a large percentage of audiences. But as younger consumers seek to watch content wherever and whenever they want, the media business is scrambling

to serve that need by streaming the content directly to consumers. It's not just the internet disruptors like Netflix and Amazon that are seeking to meet this need. The large traditional providers of content—like AT&T, Disney, Comcast, and CBS—have made big moves into the streaming field as well. At Manatt, our practice has expanded to service the business models of the streaming services and the content creators who supply their programs as well as the business models of the major studios, networks, and delivery platforms that have led our industry for decades.

in the law. The creation, copying, and distribution of content is a generation removed from the mid-1990s when the DMCA was shaped and passed. Financial models have dramatically changed. The rise of digital platforms and distribution has thrust two new forces—Silicon Valley and digital consumers—into a field that once was dominated by creators and gatekeepers. Manatt has taken a leading role in advocating for the modernization of copyright law and in advising clients how to navigate the profitable but perilous Brave New World of entertainment.

At some point, do you believe content streamers like those on Twitch, YouTube, or other services are going to need representation?

How often are media attorneys bombarded with ideas for movies, television shows, screenplays, and other entertainment concepts? What should people understand about this practice that would improve their odds and not waste their time or yours?

Content creators (and the services that stream them) need representation right now, and Manatt is representing a number of them. The appetite for this content is huge, and the deals can be substantial. Given the fast-changing nature of this business, the stakes are high for the services and the content creators alike. Both sides need to approach deals in a thoughtful, forward-looking way that advances the long-term development of the business as well as the short-term monetization of popular creators and the platforms that help them succeed.

Technology has progressed rather quickly since the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) was passed in 1998. How far behind is the legislation on the technological advancements? Stunning developments in technology have greatly outpaced developments

Many people outside the industry see entertainment lawyers as the people who can turn their ideas into Hollywood gold. But the truth is that entertainment lawyers are not creative tastemakers looking for The Next Big Thing. That role is played by agents and managers whose job is to find and nurture talent and bring it to the attention of creative executives who make decisions on what gets produced. Entertainment lawyers are business and legal advisors to companies and talent who are making deals in the industry. At Manatt, our priority is to advance the strategic, financial, and creative goals of our clients—both corporate and talent—to carry them to the top of the entertainment and media industries.

Q&A With Cheryl L. Haas and Susan C. Rodriguez

McGuireWoods LLP 2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Banking and Finance Law

How have firms adjusted over the past 10 years in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis and the ensuing legislation such as the Dodd–Frank Act and the formation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)? Susan Rodriguez: In the wake of Dodd– Frank, proactive compliance counseling became a key need for clients. Clients wanted to know how to get ahead of and prevent the next issue instead of waiting for litigation or enforcement actions. Cher yl Haas: We have increased our regulatory counseling capabilities and now regularly advise clients on a variety of consumer and securities regulations, draf t policies, and procedures and, when needed, we p re pare th e m fo r any up co min g exams or inquiries by regulators.

As the internet continues to grow, we see certain innovations in industry. There has been a growth with online-only banks. Does this present a certain 54

set of challenges for you? Susan Rodriguez: The challenge is this: We are dealing with an evolving area where the regulations, law, and even licensing requirements have not caught up with the technology. But with ever y challenge, there is also a great opportunity. We are excited to help clients shape the industr y and pave new roads with development of innovative technologies that are designed from inception to b e min df ul of ex is tin g co nsum e r p rote c t io n law s a n d re gulat io ns .

Susan Rodriguez: Adoption of smart contract features seems to be a natural progression into the future of banking, and law firms will need to adapt accordingly. We don’t view it as a threat to the banking and financial law practice, but rather just an evolving means of digital security. Many of our brick-and-mortar institutional clients are already embracing smart contracts in their existing products and services, but they still need advice on everything ranging from implementation and compliance to dat a pri vac y and security issues. At McGuireWoods, we also recently developed a financial institutions innovation group aimed at addressing these developing areas of the law and adapting our legal practice to best serve clients in these areas.

Cybersecurity is of major importance for financial institutions. How have you helped outline plans for clients to improve their digital infrastructure?

Susan Rodriguez: Over the past few years, we have worked to build out a strong team at McGuireWoods to respond to clients’ needs in the areas of cybersecurity, information governance, and improving infrastructures. We recently hosted an event for clients with the chief counsel of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, which is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to discuss ways clients can receive information from the government on risks and collaboration to ensure secure and resilient digital infrastructures. - McGuireWoods partner Susan C.

Q&A With Justin W. Chairman

Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP

2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Securities / Capital Markets Law

FULL LIST

The IPO market has been hot over the past couple of years with so called “unicorn” companies. Often, once they are listed their price has fallen or—as with a notable co-working space—the IPO failed to launch. Have these types of companies complicated the securities and capital markets practice at all, and can you share your thoughts on them?

With their high public prof iles, the going-public stories of unicorn companies bring significant attention to the capital markets that would not be at tracted by smaller of ferings. We view this increased visibility as a positive in that it creates energy and activity in the public-offering space that can have an impact across the company size spectrum.

Further, the creative structuring that of ten happens at the higher market cap levels (such as the use of direct listings or multi-class voting structures) leads to innovation that spreads across the market. Certainly, post-offering challenges to valuation of very large, notable companies can and do put pressure on subsequent offerings, and should performance of too many of these companies suffer, or should there be too many highprofile offerings that are viewed as unsuccessful, a negative tone could expand to smaller-size deals. But from the perspective of our capital markets practice, the visibility of IPOs by unicorn companies is a net positive in terms of stimulating the overall field.

Q&A With Keith Martin

Norton Rose Fulbright 2020 "Law Firm of the Year" in Project Finance Law What sort of changes, if any, have there been in this practice area as it relates to the push for green initiatives?

Roughly 60 percent of the work of the U.S. project finance group has been on renewable energy in each of the past 12 years. It is 75 percent this year. This year has felt like 2009, when the Obama economic stimulus measures pushed the renewables market into overdrive. The main stimulus this year is looming deadlines to place wind farms in service and to start construction of solar projects to qualify for federal tax credits. We added another 12 lawyers to our U.S. group in September and October to help with the increased demand. Other sources of stimulus are growth in use of batteries and other forms of electricity storage and the number of offshore wind projects that are in various stages of development of f the Atlantic coast. We see batteries in roughly 25 percent of the projects on which we are currently working. Storage has not reached a tipping point, but it is clearly moving closer. We are counsel in a large share of the offshore wind projects currently moving to market.

What sort of considerations must be made for projects in areas that have begun to feel impacts from climate change?

Catastrophic weather events are already having a visible effect. They

56

throw off electricity output forecasts and put projects and utilities at risk. Financings and ref inancings have been more difficult in California since PG&E went into bankruptcy because of wildfires. Projects in Puerto Rico were badly damaged last year by the hurricane. Public companies are under pressure to make climate change disclosures in their securities filings.

How do you stay on top of the changes and compliance regulations that are constantly evolving, especially when you consider states and countries may have different sets of rules?

O u r g l o b a l r e a c h m a ke s t h i s easier for us than other firms. We have 224 projec t law yers globally and 58 offices in 33 countries. The project finance team did $117 billion in trans a c tio ns in th e las t thre e years before 2019. We hold monthly meetings that have the cadence of a radio show where people repor t briefly on new developments that will af fect the market, pitfalls they have run into in deals, new questions clients are asking, and similar items. We p u b l ish o u r Pr o j e c t F i n a n ce NewsWire that goes to 64,000 people in the market. Issues dating back as far as 21 years can be found on our website. Our podcasts on projec t finance subjects are regularly ranked in the top 100 U.S. business podcasts. We hold periodic webinars on topical

subjects that draw as many as 2,000 to 3,000 people. We have a dedicated "knowledge law yer" in our London office which spearheads publication of a quarterly "Storage Updater" as well as research into climate change– related subjects.

What type of person is an ideal fit for project finance law and what should an aspiring student or associate who wants to pursue this field prepare for?

The ideal fit is someone who is personable and is a good listener. He or she must also be well organized and be willing to drill down into complicated details. Project finance is a complic ate d exercise in r isk allocation. Bank s will not provide financing until they are confident that all the risks have been identified and allocated among the par ties. This can take months on large projects. A good project finance lawyer is a problem solver who is at tuned to what each par t y needs out of the deal and looks for common ground.

LEVERAGED BUYOUTS AND PRIVATE EQUITY LAW Cooley LLP

A

T THE LAW OFFICES OF ELLMANN & ELLMANN, P.C., we combine experience and knowledge in representing clients regarding criminal and DUI offenses, family law, estate planning and probate matters. Our attorneys have diverse experience with private law firms and in public practice. That perspective coupled with diligence and aggressiveness has brought success in handling a wide range of situations. We recognize that not all legal matters happen during business hours on weekdays. The stress of every situation is challenging enough without having difficulty of finding Colorado attorneys when you need one. Evenings, weekends, or even holidays, we are available to you. You need a law firm that will perform a detailed investigation of the procedures involved to make sure your rights are protected. Family law matters require not only experience, but a certain level of delicacy and sensitivity. When a child’s interest is at stake during a divorce or custody-related issue, the focus should be on the future relationships within the family. Managing Partner Kevin T. Ellmann established this law firm following many year as a Senior Deputy District Attorney in the 18 th Judicial District covering Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln counties. He brings a unique perspective from his time spent as a Senior Deputy DA, as well as solid relationships with municipal county and district court prosecutors. Martina D. Ellmann has worked in private practice and served as Assistant Regional Counsel for the Social Security Administration. Her work includes strong representation in family law matters, including divorce, custody issues, and adoption. You can count on her to bring both passion for the law and compassion for families dealing with life-changing issues.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAW - DEFENDANTS Ryan Ryan Deluca LLP

Finding oneself in the midst of a medical malpractice, sexual abuse, personal injury, or civil rights case can be overwhelming and disconcerting, to say the least. Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder welcomes its clients with arms wide open, offering them the closure they so desperately need in order to put a traumatic situation behind them. “We began as a family firm,” managing attorney Jim Horwitz says. “We work together that way, and we treat the people who come here, who seek our help, as family. That’s a very big part of who we are.” With this in mind, the Koskoff attorneys function collaboratively, especially when taking on cases that other firms may be hesitant about. These challenging cases are the ones on which Koskoff thrives – where the outcome is important for both the people involved and Connecticut overall. In addition to the work the firm does for its clients, they also make a point to educate and assist lawyers who are outside of the firm. The firm’s commitment to the legal community is evident in the number of attorneys who serve as leaders in prominent organizations. Koskoff partner Kathleen Nastri is a past-president of the American Association for Justice, the world’s largest trial bar, and managing attorney Jim Horwitz is the past-president of the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association and a past-president of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association. Many of the attorneys at Koskoff have been recognized by Connecticut Magazine as Super Lawyers, and have also been listed in The Best Lawyers in America©. The firm has proved itself as one of the leading trial firms in Connecticut and nationally, particularly for its work in medical malpractice, personal injury, and civil rights cases. Clients are often referred to the firm by other lawyers who trust that Koskoff will work diligently toward the best outcome for each individual case. Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder continually goes above and beyond for its clients and the Connecticut legal field overall, demonstrating time after time where its priorities lie. bridgeport office
