April 2024

Debra Ellwood Meppen, Chair of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani’s Employment practice, has been honored as a Top 100 Lawyer by the Los Angeles Business Journal

The selection of the Top 100 Lawyers in Los Angeles signifies Meppen's exceptional legal prowess and achievements, exemplary leadership, and significant contributions to the legal community.

Meppen is regarded as one of Hollywood's best-kept secrets. Hollywood producers, directors, movie and television studio executives, talent, and the agents who manage them have her on speed dial when they need someone to handle sticky and explosive cases that could threaten a movie release or a concert tour. She not only brings decades of experience in entertainment law, litigation, and negotiation skills to her practice but also approaches each matter with the utmost discretion. 

Meppen also leads the GRSM Women's Initiative, a firm-wide women's organization developed to support and encourage female attorneys in leadership and professional growth. She actively contributes to the Diversity Committee and serves as a Co-Chair of the firm's Leadership Equality and Diversity (LEAD) program, developed to tactically achieve the firm's objectives in diversity and inclusion.
