Los Angeles Business Journal – April 26, 2021: Women of Influence: Attorneys
We are proud to announce that Miller Barondess partner Casey Sypek has been recognized in Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2021 special supplement honoring the most influential women attorneys in Los Angeles. The supplement includes attorneys recognized for exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.
Casey Sypek is a business litigator with experience representing clients in contract, fraud, employment, copyright, trademark, entertainment and false advertising disputes. She successfully represented the City of Inglewood and Mayor Butts against Madison Square Garden’s attempts to block construction of the new LA Clippers arena in Inglewood. Sypek played a key role in defending the City against MSG’s claims in seven different lawsuits; and worked hand-in-glove with the lawyers for the Clippers. After nearly three years of hard-fought litigation, a settlement was reached in May 2020 by way of Clippers owner Steve Ballmer purchasing The Forum, and MSG dropping all opposition to the project. Among other work, Sypek represents Kovac Film against PMC Retaliators and Fluke Studios involving the financing and production of a feature-length motion picture. She also represents approximately 800,000 Prius drivers in a federal class action against Toyota Japan and U.S. subsidiary, Toyota Motor Sales.
Sypek is an active member of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and California Lawyers for the Arts, a nonprofit organization devoted to empowering California’s creative arts communities. She is also on the advisory board of Guidelight Group, an organization that provides services to teens and adults with developmental disabilities.
