LOS ANGELES – Three attorneys from the Los Angeles office of Skiermont Derby LLP have again earned recognition among the top lawyers in the state with their selection to the 2017 listing of Southern California Super Lawyers.

Paul B. Derby, Mieke K. Malmberg and Hajir Ardebili were chosen for their work on behalf of both defendants and plaintiffs involved in business and intellectual property disputes. This year marks the fourth consecutive selection for Mr. Derby, the third for Ms. Malmberg and second for Mr. Ardebili, in addition to multiple years of selection as Southern California Rising Stars for each of them.

The listings published each year in Super Lawyers magazine are compiled using a multi-tiered research process based on nominations from other lawyers, independent research and additional evaluation by a blue-ribbon panel of attorneys in the same practice areas. No more than 5 percent of eligible attorneys are selected to the Southern California list each year. Super Lawyers is part of Thomson Reuters.

This announcement marks a significant achievement for the firm’s Los Angeles office. The Super Lawyers honors mean all five of the lawyers there have been recognized for their legal talents within the past year.

Firm associates Mane Sardaryan and John J. O'Kane IV were selected to Super Lawyers’ 2016 Southern California Rising Stars list. Rising Stars honors leading attorneys age 40 or younger, or in practice for no more than 10 years.

Skiermont Derby LLP represents clients in complex IP and commercial litigation in Texas, California, and throughout the nation. The firm’s experience includes matters involving patents, trademarks, unfair competition, antitrust, breach of contract, and business torts – as well as entertainment, employment, and securities litigation.
