Kenneth Trujillo-Jamison uses his sharply honed analytical and litigation skills to efficiently handle his clients’ most complex and challenging matters. Whether defending film studios against claims of copyright infringement, banks facing billions of dollars of exposure in cases arising out of the financial crisis, or businesses in other high-stakes matters, Kenneth has the proven experience to achieve the optimal outcome for each client.

Having spent time on secondment at Mattel, Inc., Kenneth has keen insight into aligning litigation strategy with his client’s business objectives. He uses this perspective to develop the core themes and narratives that best present his client’s position, and he focuses discovery and motion practice toward advancing those themes and narratives throughout the case.

Kenneth’s successes in the courtroom abound. For example, in cases involving the motion picture “Inside Out,” Kenneth worked on the defense team to convince two district court judges to dismiss with prejudice the plaintiffs’ copyright infringement claims (as well as related idea theft claims under California state law), ending those matters before discovery. Also, in a securities fraud lawsuit against a major financial institution, Kenneth helped obtain dismissal of certain claims with prejudice, significantly reducing the client’s exposure in the case. Kenneth also represented a large insurance company in securing dismissal with prejudice of claims under the False Claims Act, achieving a total victory for the client.

Aside from his practice, Kenneth is a leader in the Los Angeles legal community. He is the president of the board of the Housing Rights Center, Los Angeles’ largest public interest law organization dedicated to enforcing fair housing laws. He is also a board member for Inner City Law Center, which works to end the homelessness crisis by providing free legal services to the poorest and most vulnerable residents of Los Angeles. In addition, Kenneth has served on the California Minority Counsel Program’s 2019 Annual Business Conference Planning Committee, and as a Pathfinder in the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity program.

Prior to joining Willenken, Kenneth practiced at Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP. He also served as a law clerk for The Honorable Judge Paul J. Watford of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. In his time away from the law, Kenneth enjoys listening to podcasts and spending time with his wife and his two young children.
