Elizabeth “Libby” Locke’s law firm profile boasts that she’s “killed flawed articles, storylines, and broadcast segments” about her clients. But Locke and her client Matt Lauer were making headlines Wednesday with a letter to Variety disputing new sexual assault allegations against the former “Today” host.

Locke, a former Kirkland & Ellis partner who’s now a name partner of Washington, D.C.’s Clare Locke, is representing Lauer. Brooke Nevils, a former NBC News colleague, alleges Lauer raped her at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, according to an upcoming book from journalist Ronan Farrow. The book, entitled “Catch and Kill,” was obtained by Variety, which says it recounts how NBC News employee Brooke Nevils reported the alleged rape to NBC News in 2017, prompting Lauer’s termination.
