Weintraub Shareholder Stan Coleman has been named to Variety Magazine’s 2013 Legal Impact Report. The Legal Impact Report is an annual feature within Variety, spotlighting the critical role played by the legal community in the entertainment business and featuring 40 top lawyers (only 23 transactional) working in film, television, theater and new media.
The article notes that Stan has worked in all media, and summarized his notable accomplishments as follows:
“[Stan] closed Diane Lane’s deal to star in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Superman reboot, “Man of Steel”; David Mamet’s deal to write and direct HBO’s original film “Spector,” the story of the the Phil Spector trial; Zosia Mamet’s deal for HBO’s “Girls”; and Clara Mamet’s deal for ABC’s “Neighbors.” Coleman also set up franchise-size properties with six different studios for Scholastic. He repped Random House in three deals: a film production with Focus, a TV venture with FremantleMedia and a merchandising pact with UTA.”
