Fri Oct 08, 2010 @ 07:09PM PST

A few entertainment law odds-and-ends:

  • A team from O'Melveny & Myers led by partner Christopher Brearton is advising Spyglass Entertainment on its investment in MGM, which will emerge from a pre-packaged bankruptcy with Spyglass co-chairmen Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum at the helm. The roll-call of OMM lawyers on the deal includes partners David Krinsky and Eric Zabinsky, counsel Ken Deutsch and Amy Siegel, and associates Gene Kang and Briar Darden. Others chipping in are Suzzanne Uhland and Andrew Parlen (bankruptcy), John-Paul Motley (securities), Wayne Jacobsen (ERISA) and David Beddow (regulatory matters). 
  • Entertainment litigator Miles Feldman has partnered with Andrew Raines and about 15 lawyers to launch the boutique Raines Feldman in Bevely Hills. Feldman was previously a partner at LA's Liner Grode Stein.
  • Arian Sultan Rothman has been promoted to vp business and legal affairs for the East Coast at Comedy Central.
  • Jeff Liebenson, music attorney and president of the International Association of Entertainment Lawyers, has opened his own practice. He was previously with BMG Int'd, Katten, and Herrick Feinstein.
