Partner Andrew Bart Listed among Billboard’s Top Music Industry Lawyers of 2017

Jenner & Block Partner Andrew H. Bart is among only 10 litigators recognized on Billboard magazine’s annual list of the top lawyers in the music industry, his second consecutive year on the list.

The magazine highlights his 2016 win in the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on behalf of Capitol Records and other labels against the now-bankrupt online music storage service MP3Tunes in a long-running copyright infringement dispute. The decision is among the most significant pro-content appellate decision of the past few years and is a precedential ruling on the contours of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. 

“That is one of the joys of litigation,” he said in the profile. “Sticking with cases and riding the roller coaster of successes and struggle and coming out in a good place.”
