Kendall Brill & Kelly LLP is a Los Angeles based litigation boutique serving top-tier clients with the depth of legal experience rarely found in a firm its size. At KBK, our attorneys routinely litigate alongside and against the very top firms in Los Angeles and around the country, combining the highest standards of advocacy with a tenacious commitment to achieving the best possible solutions for our clients.
Our firm has received numerous honors, including being ranked among the state’s top media and entertainment litigation firms by the prestigious Chambers and Partners legal ranking firm, which quoted a client as saying KBK’s attorneys are “stupendous litigators.” U.S. News-Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” lists KBK as one of the top firms in the nation for our appellate practice. It also lists KBK as one of the best in Los Angeles for our appellate practice, commercial litigation, and entertainment law, including the representation of clients in motion pictures, TV, and music. In addition, the state’s leading legal publication, the Daily Journal, has honored KBK as one of the Top 25 Boutique Law Firms in California.
We earned these honors for the litigation of complex trials and appeals for top corporations, law firms, public entities, executives, board members, artists, and entrepreneurs. We have successfully represented a roster of industry-leading clients, including 19 Entertainment, Ascent Media Group, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), NBCUniversal, Pabst Brewing, Paramount, Viacom, legendary composer Hans Zimmer, and many more.
Our firm is also the one that lawyers call when they need help. Our attorneys represent some of the nation’s largest law firms in cases in which the firms are named as defendants.
At KBK, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing complicated business and regulatory disputes. In every matter, we focus on providing the highest quality legal counsel by understanding each of our clients and accomplishing their individual goals. By establishing long-term client relationships and putting our clients at the center of our work, we are able to achieve outstanding results time and again.
We pursue efficiency not by cutting corners, but by combining our experience, insight, and judgment, with an understanding of our clients and their business challenges.
As a result, KBK is regularly retained by high-profile clients to perform cutting edge legal work in high-stakes litigation, including entertainment and media litigation, intellectual property litigation, complex commercial litigation, legal malpractice defense, employment litigation, white collar defense, internal corporate investigations, and appellate advocacy.
