NEW YORK, April 5, 2022 – Proskauer, a leading international law firm, is pleased to announce that Partner Rob Freeman has been named to The Hollywood Reporter’s 2022 Power Lawyers: Hollywood’s Top 100 Attorneys list.
As co-head of the Firm’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) Group, Rob leads a team of attorneys focused on media, sports, entertainment and technology, representing clients such as Discovery, Hulu, Atlice USA, Cox Communications, NFL Media, Crown Media and AMC Networks.
This year’s list highlights the most influential attorneys in the entertainment industry who are “settling the strife between studios and stars over blockbuster streaming releases, navigating big-ticket mergers while fending off the government’s antitrust ire, and exploring cutting-edge issues involving NFTs and the metaverse” as Hollywood looks to rebound from the global pandemic and reinvent its business practices.
Rob was recognized for his role in one of the most high-profile Hollywood mergers of 2021, where he advised longtime client Discovery in connection with its deal to combine with AT&T’s WarnerMedia.
This is the third time Rob has been recognized by THR. He was previously named to THR’s Power Lawyers 2020: New York’s Top 20 Entertainment Attorneys list and Power Lawyers 2018: Hollywood’s Top 100 Attorneys list.
THR's editors intensively research the attorneys who are negotiating the industry's biggest deals and handling its most significant litigation to choose 100 people for its annual Power Lawyers list.
