James ‘Bo’ Pearl.

When James “Bo” Pearl of O’Melveny & Myers joined recording artist Kesha’s legal team, her career had largely been on hold since an ongoing legal battle from 2013 with her former producer Dr. Luke. The two had exchanged charges in a series of lawsuits, with Kesha alleging Dr. Luke drugged and sexually abused her, and Dr. Luke claiming defamation and breach of their multi-release contract. Pearl and his team began representing Kesha after winning a full dismissal in February 2016 for her manager and management in a prong of the sprawling suits in New York state court. Since then, Pearl has helped clear the way for Kesha to release “Rainbow,” her first new album after the legal dispute with Dr. Luke.
