Partner Richard Stone Named 2015 “Power Lawyer” by The Hollywood Reporter

Jenner & Block Partner Richard L. Stone, co-chair of the firm’s Content, Media & Entertainment Practice, has been recognized for the fourth consecutive year as one of the top 100 “Power Lawyers” by The Hollywood Reporter (THR).  The annual list, which recognizes talent lawyers, litigators and corporate lawyers, is compiled by THR editors and entertainment journalists who have reported on the year’s biggest deals and disputes.  Mr. Stone is one of 32 litigators selected on the list.  In a short profile published online on April 29 and in the May 8 hard copy edition, he is noted for helping engineer television broadcasters' successful efforts in their litigation against Aereo, playing a big hand in battles over Dish Network’s Autohop ad-skipping feature and protecting broadcasters against claims they are exploiting college athletes.
