LOS ANGELES—August 5, 2022—O’Melveny has been named a 2022 Law360 “Regional Powerhouse” in the state of California. This year’s list features firms that are “handling some of the biggest deals and most high-profile courtroom battles.”

Law360 recognized O’Melveny for “its reputation as a relentless client advocate” and highlighted an array of the firm’s recent achievements, including:

  • successfully defending Johnson & Johnson against public nuisance claims brought by the state over tied to the opioid crisis;
  • advising South Korea entertainment company CJ ENM on its US$850 million acquisition of an 80% stake in Endeavor Content;
  • representing Ripple Health Group in its acquisition by mental health wellness brand Calm;
  • helping Google beat digital picture frame patent infringement claims, among others;

“We have creative and intellectual talent… who are relentless in our pursuit of our clients' goals, consistent with the highest ethical standards,” said Apalla Chopra, co-chair of O'Melveny's Litigation Department. "We pride ourselves on that, and I think it's part of our well-earned reputation."

Eric Richards, co-chair of O’Melveny’s Corporate Department, added that the business cycle on the deal-making side continues to expand despite the pandemic's effects. “Volatility in the public equity markets has delayed some clients and slowed some deal work, but it hasn't stopped at all,” Richards said.
