Boies Schiller Flexner partner Jeanne Fugate was named a Top Woman Lawyer in California by the Los Angeles Daily Journal for the second year running. Fugate, who is based in Los Angeles, handles all phases of litigation in state and federal courts across various fields, including employment, contract, real estate, and general business disputes.
In a profile of Fugate, the Daily Journal highlighted her work for Molina Healthcare of California in a dispute with a company founder, and a breach-of-contract case for Tabletop Media LLC. “There is nothing like the feeling of bringing home a great win for my clients or figuring out how best to resolve a thorny dispute,” Fugate told the publication.
In addition to her legal practice, Fugate is President of the LA Board of Civil Service Commissioners, which hears appeals from city employees who have received disciplinary actions. “I think it is really important to give back to the community that you live in and this to me is a way I can give back to the city I live in and feel more a part of it,” Fugate told the Daily Journal.
