Three Weintraub Attorneys Named to the 2022 Southern California Rising Stars List

Weintraub Tobin is pleased to announce that attorneys Tara Sattler, Shaun Gordon, and Jamie Lincenberg have been selected to the 2022 Southern California Rising Stars list. This list, compiled by Super Lawyers®, recognizes attorneys who are 40 or younger or have been in practice less than 10 years. Each year only about 2.5 percent of California attorneys are chosen for this honor.

Tara Sattler is a Weintraub shareholder and member of the Firm’s Entertainment & Media group, where she focuses her practice on representing production companies, producers, financiers, and content creators in the film, television, and digital spaces. Her expertise encompasses all of the phases of development, financing, production, and distribution of scripted and non-scripted content for all budget levels. Tara’s extensive experience with international productions includes working with the Weintraub team to provide legal services for the financing, production and record sale of the Academy Award-winning film CODA.

Shaun Gordon is a shareholder and member of the Firm’s Entertainment & Media group, where his practice encompasses film, television, podcasts, and new media. His areas of focus include representing talent and producers in the podcast space, as well as actors, writers, authors, and producers in film and television. Many of Shaun’s client’s transactions have formed new frameworks for the podcast industry, as clients continue to break new ground in the growing audio space. One such transaction was a first-of-its-kind licensing deal between NPR, Wondery/Amazon, and client Guy Raz, for the hit podcast “How I Built This.”

Jamie Lincenberg is an associate in the Firm’s Entertainment & Media group, where she represents a wide variety of talent including writers, directors and actors in scripted television and film projects as well as digital content creators on transactions across various digital verticals, including high-level brand collaborations, podcasts and partnerships. In addition, Jamie works closely with television and film productions on all of their legal needs from the early stages of development through production and distribution. Jamie was one of four Weintraub attorneys named to Variety’s 2021 Legal Impact Report, alongside fellow 2022 Rising Star honoree Shaun Gordon.
