Three Covington Partners Among Top 100 Female Lawyers in California

April 20, 2016

LOS ANGELES Covington partners Emily Henn, Robyn Polashuk and Sonya Winner have been named to the Daily Journal’s annual list of “Top Women Lawyers” in California. The list recognizes 100 lawyers who “try complex commercial disputes and put together industry-transforming deals.”

Ms. Henn, based in the firm’s Silicon Valley office, co-chairs the firm’s Class Action Litigation Practice. The Daily Journal highlighted her representation of The Walt Disney Company, Lucasfilm and Pixar in defense of an antitrust class action against animation studios over alleged agreements not to recruit each other’s employees. Additionally, the publication highlighted Ms. Henn’s role as lead counsel in six class actions across the country against The Procter & Gamble Company, which challenge the company’s “flushable” label on certain products under state unfair competition and false advertising laws.

A Los Angeles partner in the Communications & Media Practice, Ms. Polashuk was praised for her ability to navigate transactions in a wide range of media platforms. The Daily Journal noted her representation of the NFL on its Thursday Night Football negotiations with NBC as well as her work with the League on its NFL Network and RedZone properties. The story also mentioned her work with The Walt Disney Company in its renewal negotiations with DIRECTV for carriage agreements for its ABC stations and her work for PBS, in each case across a variety of television and other viewing devices.

Based in the firm’s San Francisco office, Ms. Winner also serves as co-chair of the firm’s Class Action Litigation Practice. The Daily Journal highlighted Ms. Winner’s significant win for Wells Fargo Bank before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in a case regarding bank practices relating to overdraft fees on debit-card transactions. She is currently representing Wells Fargo in ongoing litigation on those issues in the Southern District of Florida. The publication also noted Ms. Winner’s public interest work, including with the Family Violence Appellate Project in Oakland.
