Watts v. Watts (U.S. District Court, N.D. Cal.)

The firm represented the daughters of famed Eastern philosopher Alan Watts in an action brought by a disinherited sibling involving rights to the deceased’s literary works. The firm successfully defended the clients' position, resulting in a victory before an arbitrator and an award of costs and attorneys' fees. Earlier, the firm prevailed in federal court against separate claims made by other disinherited siblings involving so-called "renewal" copyrights.
