AJC Fetes Wayne Barsky
American Jewish Committee (AJC) feted litigator Wayne Barsky, a partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, with the 30th annual Learned Hand Award on March 17. Barsky is considered a leading figure in intellectual property law, and the dinner attracted many of Los Angeles’ top attorneys, judges and community leaders, including Barsky’s longtime partner and friend, Scott Edelman, who presented him with the award.
Also in attendance were U.S. District Court Judge A. Howard Matz and former AJC award recipients Jerome L. Coben, Alan Friedman, Bruce Ramer, Lisa Specht and Richard Volpert, past publisher of The Jewish Journal.
