• Representation of the Kardashians in three separate actions arising out of their endorsement activities:
    • Kim Kardashian was dragged into a dispute between two competitors that market and sell laser hair removal products.  In this action filed in federal court in San Francisco, the company that hired Kim to endorse their product (TRIA Beauty) filed a false advertising and Lanham Act lawsuit against their rival, Radiancy, Inc.  Several months later, Radiancy filed a counterclaim against TRIA and Kim, claiming that Kim in her role as spokesperson repeated misleading claims about TRIA’s products.  The form obtained Kim’s dismissal from the lawsuit.
    • The defense of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, who were named in a class action complaint filed in federal court in New York against the company that developed and distributes the QuickTrim weight loss products, for which the Kardashians serve as spokespersons.
    • The defense of Kris Jenner in a breach of contract action filed in federal court in Ohio arising out of her endorsement of a beauty product, in which Ms. Jenner has asserted counterclaims for breach of contract.
  • Representation of Paris Hilton in a federal action to shut down the website “ParisExposed.com.”  The website was created to showcase numerous personal articles, including photos, videos, and medical records that belonged to Ms. Hilton and were obtained from a public storage unit leased by her. KWIKA obtained a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction based upon claims for invasion of privacy and copyright infringement.
