L.A. Law Style Showdown
Even most attorneys wouldn't put "lawyer" and "style" in the same sentence. But every profession has its stylistic protocols. Lawyers who work with Silicon Valley start-ups have come to eschew suits for jeans and casual jackets -- "We can't be more dressed up than our clients now," says Tim Silvestre, partner in downtown firm Strategic Law Partners. Still, entertainment litigators in court need to transmit "authority" to a jury, and what says authority better than a designer suit? THR compared the style choices of Daniel Petrocelli, partner with O'Melveny & Myers, and Marty Katz, partner at Sheppard Mullin, who faced off in winter 2011 at the trial over TV rights to the Golden Globes -- Petrocelli repping the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. and Katz, who won the first round, defending Dick Clark Productions.
