Sasha Frid and Amnon Siegel Recognized as 2023 Leaders of Influence: Litigators & Trial Attorneys

Partners Sasha Frid and Amnon Siegel have been honored as 2023 Leaders of Influence: Litigators and Trial Attorneys by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The special feature highlights the “very best litigators and trial attorneys in the region who go to the proverbial mat to fight for their clients before judges and juries. These are the trusted advisors you want in your corner in court.”

An accomplished litigator and trial lawyer with significant victories for both plaintiffs and defendants, Sasha Frid is one of the founding partners of Miller Barondess. Frid represents Mötley Crüe in a highly-publicized lawsuit against former guitarist Mick Mars. After Mars publicly resigned and was offered a generous compensation package, he sued the band for allegedly forcing him out after 41 years. An arbitration is also pending. Frid worked on a successful federal jury defense verdict for Virtual Sonics (a cutting-edge technology company specializing in digital music instruments) and its founders, composers Jeremy and Julian Soule. Plaintiffs, former investors Scott and Skyler Mednick, sought millions in compensation. The jury verdict, delivered in less than an hour, wiped out plaintiffs’ claims entirely. Frid also represented Peninsula Hotel Beverly Hills against Waldorf-Astoria Hotel Beverly Hills in a more than $50 million trade secret theft case which settled right before trial under confidential terms.

An accomplished litigator and trial lawyer with significant victories for both plaintiffs and defendants, Amnon Siegel joined Miller Barondess in 2007 and has been integral to the firm’s growth. Among his noteworthy work, Siegel currently represents plaintiff Mythical, Inc. (a gaming technology company at the forefront of the emerging sector of blockchain video gaming) against former Mythical executives who allegedly covertly undermined the company’s interests to line their own pockets. Defendants, while employed at Mythical, allegedly stole a business worth hundreds of millions. Siegel achieved a $256 million jury verdict for fraud and punitive damages for an automobile dealership group against Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation (a Top 10 verdict in the country). Nissan appealed the verdict, and the case was remanded for a new trial. The lawsuit recently settled during jury deliberations. Siegel also achieved a favorable settlement on behalf of 1.1 million Prius owners in a federal court class action against Toyota.
