Century City Partner Named One of Hollywood’s New Leaders of 2021


November 11, 2021

Century City partner and member of Latham’s Entertainment, Sports & Media Practice, Kendall Johnson, has been named one of Hollywood’s New Leaders of 2021 by entertainment publication Variety. The annual award recognizes a new generation of leaders in Hollywood, “prepared to take on the challenges wrought by the lockdown, including the assertion of streaming, the re-calibration of the theatrical experience, and economic uncertainty.”

Johnson was recognized for her leading transactional work, including “facilitating ground-breaking deals like Amazon’s US$8.45 billion acquisition of MGM.” In her profile she noted: “I love working on deals that mean something in the industry, are important to our clients’ future and require thinking about what’s to come and tackling novel issues along the way. Those deals tend to provide opportunities to work with some of the best and brightest in the industry, and it’s a lot of fun—and often very humbling—to get to be a part of those teams.”
