Latham partners Nancy Bruington, Ken Deutsch, and Rick Offsay have been named 2022 Power Lawyers by The Hollywood Reporter in the entertainment industry publication’s annual review of attorneys advising on high-profile matters.

Bruington was honored as “a go-to adviser for clients eyeing complex deals,” such as advising Endeavor on financing matters relating to the US$775 million sale of a controlling stake in studio unit Endeavor Content to South Korea’s CJ ENM.

Deutsch, Co-Chair of Latham’s Entertainment, Sports & Media Practice, was cited for a range of deal work, such as advising the private equity investors when Rob Reiner’s Castle Rock Entertainment relaunched its film division with a US$175 million equity raise. THR noted that “investors and financiers of all shapes and sizes, including high-net-worth individuals, have Deutsch on speed dial.”

Offsay was recognized for an impressive deal roster, including being “among MGM’s key advisers in its buzzy $8.45 billion sale to Amazon.”

Deutsch has been named a THR Power Lawyer multiple times, and Offsay is a repeat honoree from last year.

Latham’s Entertainment, Sports & Media Practice combines decades of experience representing major industry players, unique market insights about the industries’ legal and financial drivers, and a seamless global platform to deliver sophisticated commercial advice on cutting-edge and high-stakes transactions and disputes around the world.
