LOS ANGELES – APRIL 4, 2018 – Greenberg Glusker partners Bonnie Eskenazi, Matt Galsor and Schuyler “Sky” Moore were included in the 2018 Power Lawyers list published on April 4, 2018, by The Hollywood Reporter. Considered one of the more prestigious entertainment industry lists, THR annually selects 100 of most elite litigators and dealmakers representing Hollywood.

Bonnie Eskenazi impacts the legal landscape by her representation of Hollywood’s most high profile and landmark disputes. She is also a leading voice within the industry speaking out on gender discrimination in Hollywood.

Eskenazi was recognized by THR for representing Horror Inc., owner of the Friday the 13th movie franchise, which is locked in a nightmare of its own: a claim by screenwriter Victor Miller that he can terminate the screenplay copyright and recover rights for himself. She also continues to represent the Bob Marley estate and co-founded the Women in Film sexual harassment help line.                                                                                               

Matt Galsor, head of the firm’s Entertainment practice, represents Hollywood’s top artists, properties, and executives, as well as emerging artists around the globe.

Galsor was recognized by THR for his work for the Tolkien estate, spearheading the mega deal that will bring a Lord of the Rings series to Amazon. Meanwhile, client James Cameron is returning to The Terminator franchise as a producer, David Fincher will direct World War Z 2 and Tom Cruise is poised to star in Top Gun 2.

Sky Moore continues to impact the entertainment industry with innovative deals involving the most important studios, producers and financers in the world.  He remains an influential dealmaker who bridges the gap between overseas financing and Hollywood production.

Moore was recognized by THR for fixing the muddled rights agreements this year for Martin Scorsese's latest mob feature, The Irishman. Representing Mexican financier Fabrica de Cine, Moore helped sell the $100 million feature to Netflix after international rights had been bought by STX. He also aided in the establishment of a $30 million fund for local language productions for Globalgate, a cross-border entertainment alliance led by Lionsgate.
