Los Angeles – December 23, 2021: The Los Angeles Business Journal has named partners Jennifer Romano and Emily Kuwahara to its 2021 “Thriving in their 40s” list. The list highlights the “top 100 Los Angeles professionals,” and is based on “a demonstration of impact made on the profession and on the Los Angeles community.”

As co-chair of the Litigation Group, Romano focuses her practice on defending companies against consumer class actions, litigating on behalf of health care companies, and representing companies in high stakes litigation matters. The publication also highlighted Romano’s efforts within the legal community, including “the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles and Los Angeles County Bar Association’s recent call for the legal industry to redouble its commitment to programs/policies aimed to retain and advance women lawyers.”

Kuwahara is a member of the Litigation Group and has an active trial and appellate practice. She has represented defendants in a patent inventorship dispute, breach of contract actions, business torts, antitrust and consumer class actions, unfair competition law and other complex business disputes. LABJ highlighted her efforts “leading the defense to the [The Regents of the University of California’s] COVID-19 vaccine policy,” as well as her role as “an active mentor for junior attorneys, both at the firm and externally, with a particular focus on helping to guide the careers of minority and female attorneys.”
