O’Melveny’s Petrocelli Profiled in Attorney at Law MagazineDecember 07, 2015 O’Melveny & Myers partner Daniel Petrocelli was featured on the cover of Attorney at Law Magazine and profiled as “Attorney of the Month” in its December issue. The feature details Petrocelli’s path to becoming “one of the country’s most sought-after trial attorneys,” highlights some of his most high-profile cases, and describes how he prepares for major trials.
“Like most lawyers with large caseloads, I rely heavily on my colleagues,” he told the publication. “Once a case gets close to trial, especially a significant one, I shut off the phone and computer, find a trial site outside the office, and hunker down with my team. There are no distractions. The only thing we’re thinking about, talking about, and dreaming about is winning the trial… You become a tight-knit family and develop enduring bonds,” he said.
Petrocelli resides in O’Melveny’s Century City office and serves as chair of the Firm’s Trial Practice Committee. He represents clients in major litigation in a wide variety of areas, including sports, entertainment, intellectual property, unfair competition, business torts, securities, employment law, and criminal defense.
