Daniel Petrocelli Biography

Daniel Petrocelli is a partner in O'Melveny's Century City office and Chair of the Business Trial and Litigation practice. Petrocelli has a national trial practice representing clients in major litigation in a wide variety of areas, including sports, entertainment, intellectual property, unfair competition, business torts, securities, employment law, and criminal defense.

Legal 500 ranks Dan as one of the country's top 20 trial lawyers and Chambers USA ranks him as a leading lawyer in General Commercial Litigation and Entertainment and Media Litigation. Legal 500 began its description of Dan by stating: "Los Angeles based Daniel Petrocelli is emerging as one of the leading lawyers of his generation," and Chambers quotes sources calling him "just brilliant" and "a great trial lawyer." Dan has been ranked in both guides for several consecutive years, with Chambers calling him "nationally renowned for acting on large-scale, complex litigation," and Legal 500 quoting a source describing Dan as "absolutely outstanding in court" in prior years. Dan recently was featured on the cover of Super Lawyers Magazine, and in Variety as one of the industry's "50 Game-Changing Entertainment Attorneys." Petrocelli is a frequent national commentator on trials and other legal issues, as well as a featured speaker on legal issues at business groups, bar and judges associations, and citizens groups.
