About KELLY SHAPIRO
General Counsel Attorney
Born and raised in Hermosa Beach, CA, Kelly (aka Malibu Kelly, aka #ShapiroTheHero) knew she wanted to be an attorney at a young age, and was always fascinated with east coast hip-hop and the entertainment lawyers behind the scenes. Kelly graduated from Harvard Law School and started her career in Philadelphia, practicing corporate law by day, and learning entertainment law by night, assisting artists through pro bono organizations. After almost 10 years on the east coast, Kelly returned to the west coast to work at a real estate investment trust. A few years ago, Kelly made entertainment law her full-time job. In addition to representing many celebrity clients, Kelly also serves as General Counsel of a fashion-tech startup – Thesis Couture. Kelly is looking to expand her entertainment law practice to the east coast.
