Los Angeles Partner Davida Brook has been named among the Top 100 Lawyers in California by The Daily Journal for the second year in a row. Brook has previously been recognized by Daily Journal as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Lawyers in California in 2018 and one of the Top Women Lawyers in California in 2017, 2021 and 2023.
Often at the helm of the country’s most cutting edge, prominent cases, Ms. Brook’s practice focuses on commercial litigation at every level.
In 2023, Ms. Brook was co-lead counsel in Dominion Voting System’s massive defamation lawsuit against Fox News Network and Fox Corporation. That litigation resulted in a historic $787.5 million settlement reached on the very day a jury trial was set to commence in Delaware Superior Court.
Also in 2023, Ms. Brook was part of the legal team that secured a $203 million win on behalf of New York hedge fund legend, Louis Bacon, in his high-profile defamation lawsuit against Canadian fashion magnate Peter Nygard. This is one of the highest defamation awards ever paid in a New York-based defamation suit.
