John F. Stephens Featured in Los Angeles Times' "Leading Lawyers" May 23, 2018

Goldberg Segalla partner John F. Stephens, leader of the firm's Los Angeles office and west coast operations, was featured in the 2018 Los Angeles Times "Los Angeles' Leading Lawyers," an annual supplement from Leaders in the Law that recognizes "exceptional lawyers and law firms" practicing in the greater Los Angeles region. Nodding to John's reputation as one of the city's top attorneys (he's also earned recognition numerous times from Super Lawyers, The Los Angeles Business Journal, and other publications), the Los Angeles Times feature notes that "For more than twenty years John has been riding the coming crests in emerging tech, new media, and the law — and his passion is counseling and protecting others, from the wavemakers to the individuals and small businesses caught up in the swell."

As chair of the firm's Cybersecurity and Data Privacy practice and vice chair of the Sports and Entertainment practice, John serves as counsel to a fascinating cross-section of businesses and individuals at the forefront of technology, entertainment, and new media —  including the world's largest live entertainment company, national publications and Hollywood studios, giants of finance and insurance, and insured individuals and business from a vast array of industries. John "handles novel IP and media transactions, provides insurers with comprehensive coverage counsel, ... advises clients on data liability and breach-response practices," and also "crafted a 'soup-to-nuts' suite of legal services for live entertainment festivals and events, which has become the proven model for the most prominent companies in that field," the feature notes.

As a "Los Angeles Leading Lawyer," John is also profiled on the Leaders in the Law online directory of top attorneys across the country.
