O+Z Wins Prestigious Top Copyright Law Firm Ranking
Washington, D.C. (April 12, 2021) — Oppenheim + Zebrak, LLP ("O+Z") has been named by Managing IP magazine as one of the top two law firms in the United States in the field of copyright.
As part of its Managing IP 2021 Americas Awards, O+Z was presented the Copyright Firm of the Year award for the Eastern half of the United States. The designation, which was based on Managing IP’s independent research, recognizes the firm’s important work in the area of copyright and related litigation. In presenting the award on April 7, Managing IP singled out the firm’s success in “one of the most high-profile copyright verdicts” of the past few years, in which O+Z secured a $1 billion jury verdict for the music industry against Cox Communications for willful contributory and vicarious copyright infringement.
Other nominees considered for the award of Copyright Firm of the Year, Eastern U.S., included Cowan Liebowitz & Latman; Jenner & Block; Kirkland & Ellis; Proskauer Rose; and Weil Gotshal & Manges. The Managing IP award for Western U.S. (and nationally) was awarded to Loeb & Loeb.
O+Z has been at the forefront of some of the most consequential copyright cases of the past several years. Among other O+Z matters, the firm is litigating a high-profile case for the publishing industry against the Internet Archive, and, following its success against Cox, it is litigating two other cases on behalf of the music industry against internet service providers, Charter Communications and Bright House.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by Managing IP for our work on behalf of content creators, and we are grateful to our clients for the opportunity to represent them," said managing partner Matt Oppenheim.
Co-founding partner Scott Zebrak added, "O+Z believes in its work. We have a talented, deep team of lawyers that deserve this recognition."
