Greg Knopp Quoted by Law360 on High-Profile California Employment Case

For its article “The Biggest California Employment Cases Of 2015,” Law360 quoted Akin Gump labor and employment partner Greg Knopp on the high-profile gender discrimination case Pao v. Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

Knopp said of the closely watched case, which became a case study for employers on the viral nature of high-dollar bias suits, that “it’s worth noting from a defense perspective just how much coverage a case like that gets.”

He added that those involved in cases with high-profile parties, such as Pao v. Kleiner—Ellen Pao was interim CEO of Reddit (November 2014 – July 2015) and Kleiner Perkins is a well-known Silicon Valley venture capital firm—need to understand and expect that they will be the subject of daily media coverage.
