Clients describe Moez Kaba “one of the best young trial lawyers I’ve ever seen” and praise him for being “innovative, smart, and able to see problems from various perspectives.” Of his acumen in the courtroom, clients say, “His oral advocacy skills are second to none.” As a result, he has been recognized as among the top up-and-coming commercial litigators by Chambers and Partners.

 

Mr. Kaba’s practice encompasses an array of general complex civil litigation, including securities, trade secrets, intellectual property, entertainment, antitrust, and white-collar defense and investigations. He has practiced in state, federal, trial, and appellate courts in California, New York, Delaware, Florida, and Colorado.

 

Mr. Kaba has had many recent successes in the past year alone. For example, recently, Mr. Kaba obtained a complete defense victory for Caltech after a four-week jury trial in Los Angeles; successfully argued in the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals that a social network is immune, under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, from liability for third-party statements; defeated a $100 million suit against Bausch Health Companies; obtained a preliminary injunction on behalf of Amgen against the state of California in a case setting new precedent for the pharmaceutical industry; favorably settled a case brought by the Navajo Nation against Wells Fargo arising out of Wells Fargo’s deceptive business practices; and defeated the Securities and Exchange Commission’s motion for contempt against Elon Musk related to Musk’s tweets.

 

Mr. Kaba also plays significant roles in a number of ongoing high-profile matters, including representing the Navajo Nation in its suit against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and various mining companies; representing Amazon against a high-profile breach of contract lawsuit brought by Woody Allen; addressing the significant inverse condemnation issue in defense of Edison International and Southern California Edison against claims arising out of the largest wildfires in California history; and representing Monster Energy Company in multiple Lanham Act, misappropriation, and unfair competition lawsuits.

 

His successes have earned Mr. Kaba a reputation for vigorously, strategically, and steadfastly representing his clients both inside the courtroom and as a trusted advisor.

 

Mr. Kaba has been recognized four times on the “40 & Under Hot List” by Benchmark Litigation, three times as among the “Top 100 Lawyers” in California by the Daily Journal, in the “Top 40 Under 40” by the Daily Journal, a “Litigation Star” by Benchmark Litigation, and the Los Angeles Business Journal recognized him both as a “Top Litigators and Trial Lawyer in Los Angeles” and as one of the “Most Influential Minority Attorney.”
