Zia Modabber, co-head of the Los Angeles Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice, was featured in the Los Angeles Daily Journal on his recent appointment to Managing Partner of Katten's Los Angeles offices. The article notes a number of his celebrity clients and the unique challenges he finds in law office management. Zia stated, "I've run the litigation department here for well over a decade, but it's very different. I understand what litigation is, so working with litigators sort of came naturally to me. But being the managing partner of the office, my job is to help out everyone." Former Katten managing partner Gail Migdal Title indicated that she has always been impressed by Zia, adding that after watching Zia in one of his first jury trials, "I was just blown away by how talented he was, and I told him that. I said, 'You've got a big career ahead of you.' And look how prescient I was." ("From the King of Pop to Katten's Top," March 14, 2016)
