Corporate matters we have handled for clients in the Media and Entertainment Industry include:

  • We represented Regal Entertainment Group in signing of definitive agreement to be acquired by Cineworld Group PLC, the UK's largest cinema operator.
  • We represented Daniel Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins, in defeating a challenge brought by an unsuccessful bidder contesting his failed attempt to buy the team from the estate of Jack Kent Cooke.
  • We represent the former owners of the Salt Lake Tribune, who are involved in a dispute with several parties concerning ownership of the newspaper. After successfully bringing an interlocutory appeal and persuading the appellate court to reverse a determination made by the district court in the denial of a preliminary injunction, we won summary judgment for our client enforcing the terms of an option agreement for the purchase of the newspaper. We are now representing our client in the Tenth Circuit on an appeal relating to the process for establishing the price at which our client may purchase the newspaper.
  • We represented cable programmers in negotiating carriage by cable systems.
