Patricia Glaser has once again been named one of Hollywood’s most powerful women. The Glaser Weil Partner and Litigation Department Chair was selected by The Hollywood Reporter for its “Women in Entertainment: Power 100” list, which honors 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.”
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 7th. This year’s event paid special tribute to Tina Fey and Ryan Murphy, receiving the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award and the first-ever Equity in Entertainment Award, respectively, with opening remarks by Megyn Kelly.
