    Walsh: So here’s a preview of what our listeners can expect in the upcoming season. Our first episode will feature Elizabeth Chan, a full-time Christmas pop star who has dedicated her career to writing holiday music. Felicia will be speaking with Elizabeth and WilmerHale Partner Louis Tompros about Elizabeth’s recent trademark battle with Mariah Carey.

    Ellsworth: It’s a great episode, and we also have some really interesting episodes in the works on reproductive rights, cannabis legalization and some of the firm’s other interesting representations, as well as episodes featuring some of our high-profile WilmerHale alums. It’s going to be another great season.

    Walsh: Yeah, I couldn't agree more. Our third season is sure to be jam-packed with some interesting and unique perspectives on events and cases that are in the news.
