JULY 14, 2023 – Davis Wright Tremaine LLP congratulates our entertainment law partner Jon Segal, and associates Tina Salvato and Farrah Vazquez, who were recognized in this week's Litigators of the Week column, published by The American Lawyer.
As Lit Daily's Ross Todd reports, our team, together with attorneys from Latham & Watkins and Gibson Dunn, fended off $30 million in fraud claims brought in arbitration by a company that participated in the CNBC reality television show "The Profit."
The defendants were production company Machete (represented by Davis Wright), Camping World (represented by Latham), and NBCUniversal (represented by Gibson Dunn).
The arbitrator found a "complete failure of competent, credible evidence" of fraud and awarded $7 million in total attorney fees—a victory that earned the three firms a "shout-out" in this week's column.
