O’Melveny’s Strong Featured as Law360 Rising StarApril 12, 2012
The April 11, 2012, edition of Law360 profiled O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner Sabrina Strong as a “Rising Star” in the product liability field. The article recognized Strong’s “penchant for delivering results for clients facing trial,” detailing her previous victories for clients Johnson & Johnson, AIG, and General Mills. Of Strong’s impressive track record, Firmwide Chair of O’Melveny’s Litigation Department Randy Oppenheimer, said to Law360 that Strong is “very, very good at translating complex material so it can be understood, and that's one of the greatest assets a trial attorney can have.” Having the fortune to have been mentored by older lawyers such as Oppenheimer, Strong now strives to help young lawyers. Law360 noted she helped found the Ninth Circuit Appellate Advocacy Clinic at the UCLA School of Law in 2008, which gives law students the opportunity to represent clients before the appeals court. One lesson she’s learned throughout her career is "Oftentimes women will set their own limitations, unfortunately," Strong said to Law360. "One of the things I've had to overcome to some degree is to recognize I can accomplish everything our partners can accomplish."
Strong is a partner in O'Melveny's Los Angeles office and a member of the Class Actions, Mass Torts, and Insurance Litigation and General Trial and Litigation Practices.
