Additionally, Ms. Jacobson has been a key member of Weil teams that have represented a major television network in a programming dispute with a national cable operator following a merger, which was successfully resolved by settlement, as well as in a series of putative class actions arising out of a 2017 blockbuster boxing match, in which the court granted the network’s motion to compel individual arbitration, ultimately leading to settlement.
Ms. Jacobson also maintains an active pro bono practice, representing clients in various disability rights matters.
