Whistler Partners is pleased to announce the placement of Bezalel (Bez) Stern as a consumer protection and advertising partner in Manatt's Washington, D.C. office.
Stern’s background representing clients before regulatory agencies such as the FTC as well as his vast litigation experience and work involving advertising disputes and regulatory enforcement matters further deepen Manatt’s national bench of professionals assisting clients on a wide range of regulatory, investigatory, compliance, transactional and litigation matters across the complex world of consumer protection and advertising.
“Manatt’s greatest strength is our professional services and cross-industry model, which involves effectively advising clients with a business-centric lens through their maze of legal and regulatory challenges and opportunities,” said Donna L. Wilson, CEO and Managing Partner of Manatt. “Our Consumer Protection and Advertising practice is a prime example of this since clients across our platform need a sophisticated understanding of the ever-evolving industry convergences and regulatory changes that shape virtually all related advertising activity. We’re thrilled to build upon these capabilities through Bez’s impressive background and leadership.”
The placement was led by Taylor Miller, Managing Director at Whistler, who said that "Bez's energy is contagious, and I couldn't be happier to have made this match. Bez has developed a niche but highly sought-after expertise handling FTC advocacy and litigation, NAD and NARB proceedings, and media and advertising advocacy and compliance. Manatt's unique platform, with its long-held dominance in the media space and more recent embrace of emerging technologies, made perfect sense for his practice. Congratulations Bez and Manatt."
