FWRV partner Elliot Brown was presented the Ed Rubin Award by the American Bar Association Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries during the forum’s Annual Meeting on October 10. The Ed Rubin Award is the Forum’s highest honor and is given to one member each year in recognition of leadership and service. Ed Rubin was the first chair of the Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries and a proponent of collegial and professional association among entertainment lawyers. This was a feat, as entertainment law practitioners of the 1970s and 1980s were not predisposed to sharing information. Partner Michael Rudell also received the award in 2005.
