After graduating from Harvard Law School, Feigen started the Women's Rights Project of the ACLU with (now Justice) Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an experience that gave her the understanding, empathy and skills to work for clients in discrimination cases of all kinds. These often include claims of harassment, retaliation and wrongful discharge. Feigen also represents defendants in these types of cases when she feels that they are being exploited by unfair claims.
Feigen maintains a strong interest in constitutional law and has written and spoken extensively on sex discrimination. In recent years, she has focused on issues arising from the same-sex marriage conundrum that continues to exist today in many states. She attended the 2013 Supreme Court hearings in the DOMA and Prop 8 cases.
After Feigen’s work at the ACLU, she began a career in the entertainment industry, first as a lawyer, then as a William Morris motion picture and television agent and later as producer of the big-budget Hollywood film, "NAVY SEALS", starring Charlie Sheen. Those experiences gave her the expertise to represent creatively clients with film, television, literary, visual arts and multi-media matters. Her entertainment practice has expanded to include copyright and trademark registrations and prosecutions.
Feigen, familiar with how few good movies are made in Hollywood, has recently undertaken the task of helping clients find financing for their films or television projects. One unique tack that she takes is to encourage the use of non-profit donations as well as equity investments for films that raise social issues. This is a logical follow-up to her involvement in years past in both the non-profit and profit-making worlds.
Feigen is on the Executive Committee of the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s Business Law Section. Her practice includes general business clients, both individuals and companies, where being a talented negotiator is a must. Because Feigen’s family has an extensive reputation in art, Feigen also works with clients who both buy and sell artworks of different periods.
Recently Feigen has written many articles and blogs about same-sex marriage and related issues, including family law matters such as pre-nuptial, co-parenting and separation agreements.
Feigen partners with legal specialists and counsel in other jurisdictions when big cases come her way that require more hands on deck. Her private investigator, highly capable in all types of complex research, has proven to be an invaluable asset not only in finding and researching hard-to-gain information about all sorts of entities but also in assessing the "other side" in a negotiation, arbitration or litigation.
