April 2016 – Congratulations to partner Phil Kelly for being honored by Variety as one of the country’s top entertainment attorneys in the publication’s “Legal Impact Report.” Variety says that its Legal Impact Report “profiles the best legal minds working across all segments of the entertainment business.” Mr. Kelly made the “Up Next” part of the list because of his representation of “high-profile clients, including Paramount Pictures, NBCUniversal, and composer Hans Zimmer.” It noted that he was “lead counsel for Viacom and Nickelodeon in defending and resolving” an important copyright infringement case and for Viacom Media Networks in another copyright infringement lawsuit. In addition, Variety pointed out that Mr. Kelly “ran day-to-day defense for Paramount in a lawsuit in which plaintiffs sought up to $40 million plus punitive damages, winning on appeal in December.”
