Colleagues

Lawyer Resources – We’ve got you covered! The Firm has a formal affiliation and works closely with Kaufman Entertainment Law Group, a group of three other attorneys with extensive in-house and private practice experience. Your project will at all times have the immediate attention of an attorney with extensive experience and not a junior associate. UNLIKE MOST LARGE FIRMS, WE DO NOT DOUBLE BILL FOR A SENIOR PARTNER TO MERELY REVIEW THE JUNIOR ATTORNEY’S WORK, although Larry Verbit, if not primary, will always be hands-on with your project. We also have relationships with numerous other attorneys, paralegals and firms that concentrate on various legal specialties on an as needed basis. These other attorneys are on-call for immediate entertainment transactional and production work, as well as in connection with litigation. For example, we recently were engaged for a television series requiring an attorney to travel around the world with the production. Within three hours we had three attorneys from which to choose, ready to embark on this project, and each with more than fifteen years experience.

ADDITIONAL ON-CALL COUNSEL:

In addition to our affiliate firm and on-call colleagues, we have immediate access to specialists in the following fields:

Complex Corporate and Securities Matters
Complex Corporate and Tax Matters
Complex Intellectual Property Matters
Complex Labor Issues – Management Side

Larry Verbit spent more than 11 years as in-house counsel. During that time he gained an expertise in managing outside counsel for cost effectiveness. Unlike many firms we do not bill for the same work. Thus, if one of our colleagues prepares the work we will make sure they render services in a given time frame and we do not bill for multiple attorneys on the same project.

Our colleagues generally have approximately fifteen years of experience so you are not tossed off to a junior associate who needs to be monitored by a senior partner who bills for monitoring time.
