Mintz is pleased to announce that Members Arameh Zargham O’Boyle and Abigail O’Brient have been named “2021 Business of Law Visionaries” in the Los Angeles Times B2B Publishing’s “Business of Law: Trends, Updates, Visionaries” magazine. As part of this recognition, Ms. O’Boyle and Ms. O’Brient were featured in a special section published on August 29.
The magazine spotlights legal professionals and covers trends, profiles, and overall business updates. These noteworthy firm lawyers and in-house counsel were nominated by readers for their successes and accomplishments during the last 24 months, as well as their exemplary leadership within their organizations and communities across Southern California.
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, receivers, and other fiduciaries. 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.
“Deeply seeded in Mintz's culture and the Los Angeles office is the attraction and retention of female attorneys. Arameh and Abby have played a vital role in the growth and success of our office,” said Joshua Briones, Managing Member of Mintz’s Los Angeles Office. “This recognition is a testament to their leadership within the firm, the community, and on behalf of our clients.”
