An associate in the Los Angeles office, Sarah Abeson assists and advises entertainment clients with copyright issues, including assignments, infringement, and termination, as well as with catalog licensing and sales.

Abeson earned her J.D. from UCLA School of Law in 2020 and her B.A. in economics and social sciences from the University of Southern California in 2015.

Jenna Johnson, an associate in the Dallas office, primarily defends pharmaceutical and medical device clients facing complex commercial disputes and multidistrict litigation (MDL).

In the course of her career, she represented clients in product liability and other commercial disputes involving trade secret misappropriation, breach of contract, wills and trusts, and had a document sealed that could have disclosed highly sensitive information. Johnson earned her J.D. from Texas A&M University School of Law in 2020 and her B.S. in communication from the University of Miami in 2016.

An associate in the Dallas office, Anna Kalinina is experienced in handling a wide variety of complex commercial and product liability matters in state and federal courts throughout Texas and across the country.
