Glaser Weil LLP is proud to announce that Patricia Glaser, Chair of the Firm’s Litigation Department, and Jill Basinger, a Partner in the Litigation Department, have been recognized by The Hollywood Reporter on its “Power Lawyers 2018” list, which distinguishes the 100 most influential entertainment attorneys across the United States. The Hollywood Reporter annually researches the largest deals and lawsuits in the entertainment industry to produce this list.
Ms. Glaser's Power Lawyers profile highlights her work on some of the year's most significant entertainment cases, including representing Harvey Weinstein in his wrongful termination suit against The Weinstein Company. She was also selected for her work with such high-profile clients as Fox Sports executive Jamie Horowitz, who hired her after he was fired following harassment claims; Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, Inc. in a dispute concerning production financing; and popular late-night comedian Conan O’Brien, his production company and the TBS network in a copyright infringement suit.
This year is Ms. Basinger's first time being selected by The Hollywood Reporter, which spotlights her representation of journalist Yashar Ali after he was hit with a $50 million defamation suit from Eric Bolling. This suit followed his report on alleged sexual harassment by the ousted Fox News host. She also represents entertainment industry moguls Keith Olbermann, Denise Richards, Anna Wintour and the estate of late billionaire Kirk Kerkorian, among others.
Ms. Glaser was recently named “Business Leader of the Year” in the Services category by Los Angeles Business Journal, and she and Ms. Basinger are both regularly included in Variety's Legal Impact Report.
