In the 2006 edition of America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, Chambers USA has named Franklin Weinrib one of only four top-ranking New York firms in Media and Entertainment commercial practice. Citing commentators, Chambers describes the firm as “One of the finest media practices not just in the city but in the country” with “experienced lawyers for every conceivable matter.” In its description of the firm, Chambers further notes, “The firm is active on a broad spectrum of matters across the television, film, book publishing and theater sectors. It also has substantial involvement in the exploitation and development of new media content…. The group’s media clients run the full gamut of actors, writers, producers, publishers, financiers and corporations. ” Four of the firm’s partners also were cited as “leading individuals” in the Media and Entertainment category: Michael Rudell, Elliot Brown, Nick Gordon and Neil Rosini.
