For the second year in a row, Glenn D. Pomerantz has been named to The Hollywood Reporter’s Power Lawyers list.
He was recognized for his work on behalf of ABC in obtaining a temporary restraining order against CBS, which tried to block the rival television network from premiering “Glass House” earlier this summer. CBS claimed the new show was too much like “Big Brother.” As the publication noted, Mr. Pomerantz recently returned to the firm from a stint with the U.S. Department of Justice, where he served as co-lead trial counsel in the DOJ’s efforts to block AT&T’s merger with T-Mobile. The deal was abandoned at the end of 2011.
THR also highlighted Mr. Pomerantz’s work shutting down Zediva, an unlicensed video-on-demand service that transmitted performances of copyrighted materials over the Internet.
In what the American Bar Association calls a “complete list” of insider entertainment law, the Power Lawyers list features entertainment’s top attorneys broken down into the categories of litigation specialists, legal troubleshooters and corporate or talent dealmakers. The list is a compilation of Hollywood’s 100 most influential attorneys based on the biggest deals and cases over the last year as decided by THR’s editorial team.
Mr. Pomerantz is a litigation partner in the Los Angeles office of Munger Tolles. His practice focuses on antitrust, copyright and contract matters in the media and entertainment industry.
