Sarah E. Moses has played a primary role in the firm’s success in media and entertainment litigation: She is defending one of the world’s largest talent agencies in a widely publicized dispute with the Writers Guild of America and provided invaluable assistance in securing a victory for an Olympic athlete in litigation over breach of a Talent Services Agreement. She is also representing a preeminent ’90s grunge band in a copyright and trademark infringement case against an international fashion brand, has successfully represented professional sports agency Wasserman Media Group in client contract disputes, and routinely works with Digital Brand Architects, a leading social influencer marketing agency.
She is a vital member of the firm’s white collar defense and government investigations team, helping to defend clients facing federal, civil, and regulatory investigations for serious criminal charges, including violations of the False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback Statute.
Ms. Moses is committed to providing pro bono services. She represents a transgender inmate in Arizona state prison who was sexually harassed and assaulted by a correctional officer. Ms. Moses argued—and won—her first Ninth Circuit appeal in that case. She also represents an ICE detainee in an immigration matter involving the Department of Justice’s compliance with a California injunction that entitles detainees to regular bond hearings.
