O’Melveny’s Kahn Recognized for Pro Bono Work on Behalf of Marine Corps Veteran

September 29, 2016

The September edition of the Inner City Law Center’s Pro Bono Spotlight features Nora Kahn, a litigation associate at O’Melveny & Myers’ Century City and Los Angeles offices. In early 2016, Kahn began representing a United States Marine Corps veteran who served two combat deployments in Afghanistan. The horrors of war left O’Melveny’s client with nightmares, flashbacks, anxiety, and above all, guilt. 

The Marine Corps discharged our client with a less than honorable discharge status, stripping him of veterans benefits. Now Kahn, along with O’Melveny partner Matthew Kline, is representing the veteran in an effort to upgrade his discharge status so that he can access VA benefits and health care.

Kahn has represented clients in the entertainment and sports industries in various employment contract and tort litigation matters, as well as executive compensation and broadcast disputes. Kline is an accomplished general commercial litigator who represents plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of cases, with a focus on intellectual property, contract disputes, international cases, government investigations, and the water, high-tech, private-equity, and energy industries.
