Mintz Members Arameh Zargham O’Boyle and Abigail O'Brient have been named to the Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2020 Top Women Attorneys list. Notably, this is the third consecutive year that Ms. O’Boyle has been selected to the prestigious list, and the first year of recognition for Ms. O’Brient. A highly selective honor, only 75 women in the Los Angeles region were chosen and featured in Los Angeles Business Journal’s special supplement, published on April 27.
In her more than a decade of practice, Ms. O’Boyle has become one of the most sought-after attorneys that product innovators and manufacturers in the pharmaceutical, medical device, personal care and cosmetic sectors rely upon when faced with potential or actual litigation. She concentrates her practice on defending companies in product liability litigation. In addition, she is active in Mintz’s robust diversity and community initiatives led out of the firm’s Los Angeles office.
Ms. O’Brient’s wide-ranging insolvency and litigation practice focuses on representation of secured and unsecured creditors in bankruptcy cases and other insolvency proceedings in California and nationwide. She routinely represents parties in litigation related to insolvency and distressed debt in state and federal court, as well as purchasers and sellers of distressed assets and bankruptcy trustees and receivers. Ms. O’Brient’s clients value her practical, business-oriented approach to resolving legal issues and her ability to coordinate and manage proceedings pending in multiple courts to achieve positive litigation outcomes.
The honorees were selected for their “exceptional legal skill and achievement across the full spectrum of responsibility, exemplary leadership as evidenced by the highest professional and ethical standards, and for their contributions to the Los Angeles community at large.”
