BLB represents Nona Gaprindashvili against Netflix
BLB, together with American lawyers, defends the interests of Georgian chess legend Nona Gaprindashvili in the legal dispute initiated against Netflix in California, United States.
The dispute concerns a false statement purposefully made in the final episode of The Queen’s Gambit series regarding the most significant career achievement of the Georgian grandmaster, claiming as if she had never faced men.
For our team, it is a tremendous honour to represent legendary champion - Nona Gaprindashvili in a dispute that has a special value and importance for Georgian society. In the interview with The New York Times published today, she notes that this dispute is another part of her legacy, stating: “It is already part of my legacy that women chess players are accepted and becoming grandmasters; It is a fight I began, and it is a fight I am continuing.”
