To Live and Law in LA features lively conversations with Nixon Peabody attorneys and featured guests about the innovations, industries, and laws impacting our city and shaping its future.
State of the LA Economy with LAEDC
How has the pandemic impacted Los Angeles, and more importantly, where do we go from here? Justin Thompson, LA Office Managing Partner and a partner in the Nixon Peabody Real Estate group, sits down with Bill Allen, President and CEO of the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation, to discuss the pandemic’s economic impact. Justin and Bill discuss how we can grow and develop in the region by leading with the key principles of equity, sustainability, and resiliency. Both Bill and the LAEDC are critical forces in this city for economic growth and advancing equity, and champions of respected research, data, and advocacy.
The future of collegiate sports and NIL regulation
With the NCAA stepping out of the picture and states rapidly passing name, image, and likeness (NIL) legislation, what does the future hold for collegiate sports? Nixon Peabody attorney Thaddeus Stauber sits down with Genaro Trejo, CEO at The NIL Xchange, a pioneer in the information exchange between universities and students seeking NIL compensation. They discuss opportunities for student-athletes to capitalize on NIL, potential tax law implications, and the impact on college and university communities.
Patrolling Skid Row
In our Season 2 finale, we talk with LAPD Officer Deon Joseph about the 20 years he has spent patrolling one of the most notorious homeless communities in the world: Los Angeles’ Skid Row. Hosted by Nixon Peabody attorneys Jade Turner-Bond and Shannon Egan.
Hip-Hop’s Diversity Issue
Nixon Peabody entertainment partner and Billboard Top Music Lawyer Julian Petty talks about the lack of diverse legal representation in the hip-hop industry, why he made the switch from aspiring rapper to lawyer, and his background representing some of the biggest names in the business, including Childish Gambino and the Estate of the Notorious B.I.G. Hosted by Nixon Peabody attorneys Jade Turner-Bond and Neal Gauger.
The Future is Female
California’s new law, SB 826, requires every publicly traded company in California to have at least one woman on a board. This is the first law of its kind in the nation and has come with fanfare as well as controversy. We discuss SB 826 with Megan Sette and Miki Reynolds, heads of Grid 110, a downtown Los Angeles startup accelerator with a graduation rate of more than 50% women founders. Hosted by Nixon Peabody attorneys Jade Turner-Bond and Shannon Egan.
Buses, Autonomous Vehicles, and Scooters…Oh My!
Autonomous vehicles and scooters are all the rage in mobility, but how will this transportation revolution impact our already our struggling Los Angeles public transit system and the communities that rely on it? To find out, we talk with Nixon Peabody partners Bryan LeRoy and Rudy Salo, members of the firm’s Mobility and Autonomous Vehicles Initiative. Nixon Peabody attorneys Neal Gauger and Aaron Brian will host the discussion.
