Lawyers have long enjoyed a critical place in the entertainment industry. But in recent years, they have been uniquely tasked with guiding corporate and individual clients alike through an era of unprecedented transformation across media and entertainment. This panel of alumni, who represent a broad cross section of the most prominent talent in film and television, explore the attorney’s fast-evolving role in an even faster-evolving industry. How has that role changed in recent years, and how do these attorneys stay one step ahead in the rapidly changing business and legal environments? What personal and professional roles do these entertainment lawyers play in their clients’ lives? And how has their time at Harvard Law School informed their own personal and professional experiences?
