Patricia Glaser, head of Glaser Weil’s Litigation Department, has once again been recognized among the most powerful women in Hollywood. The Hollywood Reporter’s annual “Women in Entertainment: Power 100” list honors top film and television executives, agents, producers, performers and other professionals focused on the business of entertainment. Criteria for inclusion on the industry’s most competitive and sought-after list has varied from year to year from television ratings and box office dollars to overall authority within her company to “greenlight power.”
Featured among “The Dealmakers,” Ms. Glaser tops the short list of trial attorneys in the nation sought after for high-stakes litigation and has been called a "trial icon” for having frequently represented high-profile individuals in complex matters. She continually earns high praise from her peers being described as “everything you want in a trial lawyer and nothing you don't. She is unflinching and hard as nails but always conscientious, and she is straight-talking and direct without all of the bluster and noise that some other trial lawyers are prone to."
All of the “Power 100” honorees were celebrated at The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast on December 6th at Milk Studios. This year’s event paid special tribute to Jennifer Lawrence, who was presented with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award, and Amy Pascal, recipient of the second annual Equity in Entertainment Award, which is given to an individual in the show business community who has proved committed to providing opportunities for women and people of color. A keynote speech was delivered by Angelina Jolie.
