Jenner & Block

Partner Andrew Bart Listed among Billboard’s Top Music Lawyers of 2018

Jenner & Block Partner Andrew H. Bart is among only 14 litigators recognized on Billboard magazine’s annual list of the top lawyers in the music industry, his third consecutive year on the list.

The magazine highlights his victory on behalf of Capitol Records and other labels against the now-bankrupt online music storage service MP3Tunes in a long-running copyright infringement dispute, as well as a win for Jay-Z in the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in a copyright case over a sample used in the song “Big Pimpin’.”

“I’ve always been sort of a music geek,” Mr. Bart said in the profile. “But I got into this line of work for the excitement of being in a courtroom.”
