Partner Rick Stone Named 2014 Hollywood Reporter “Power Lawyer”

The Hollywood Reporter (THR) has named Jenner & Block Partner Richard L. Stone a 2014 “Power Lawyer” in its eighth annual recognition of the top 100 entertainment lawyers in America.  This is the third consecutive year that Mr. Stone has been named to this prestigious list of attorneys who, according to THR, have “huge influence over how Hollywood operates.”

The ranking is compiled by THR editors and entertainment law journalists who look at the year's biggest deals and major litigation.  Recognized lawyers are categorized as talent lawyers, litigators or corporate lawyers.

Mr. Stone, who is co-chair of Jenner & Block’s Content, Media & Entertainment Practice, is one of just 36 litigators selected.  He is featured in a short profile, published on April 30, that refers to him as “Fox’s pit bull in the fight against Aereo and other digital upstarts threatening to end television as we know it.”  THR also recognizes Mr. Stone’s work in the music industry, particularly in defending SoundExchange from antitrust claims brought by Sirius XM.
