August 27, 2019


NEW YORK—August 26, 2019—O’Melveny litigation partner Leah Godesky has been named to Billboard’s 2019 Top Music Lawyers List. Billboard describes the prestigious list as recognizing “attorneys at key companies and law firms [who] are on the front lines of the music industry’s legal battles and deals.”

In its profile of Godesky, Billboard noted Godesky’s work for Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Kesha in defamation claims against her by her former producer. Billboard wrote, “Godesky… scored a big win for Kesha in her legal battle with Dr. Luke (aka Lukasz Gottwald) in May when a New York appeals court affirmed that Sony Music has to tell the singer who it interviewed as part of its internal investigation into her sexual misconduct claims against the producer.”

Godesky told Billboard that the victory “helps ensure that Kesha has access to the information that she needs to defend herself.”
