The Los Angeles Business Journal has named Laura Washington, as a 2021 honoree in their “Most Influential Women Attorney” awards. The annual recognition honors Los Angeles’s most influential women 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 for contributions to the Los Angeles community at large. Washington was named for her representation of many high-profile clients in complex business disputes in the entertainment, media, and other sectors, with wide-ranging litigation experience that includes pre-litigation counseling, trial, and appellate work.
“Washington has earned her place at the forefront of entertainment and media matters, having led one of the biggest #MeToo cases that continues to make headlines,” wrote the Los Angeles Business Journal in its profile. “Representing Miramax and a former board member of The Weinstein Company – current deputy CEO of Technicolor Tim Sarnoff – in the US-based Harvey Weinstein-related litigations, she has defeated every single Weinstein-related lawsuit filed against Miramax and Sarnoff in the U.S.”
