LOS ANGELES, July 15, 2020 – Partner Tony Oncidi was named to Variety’s 2020 Legal Impact Report. Recognized as a “top attorney for media giants and production companies looking to resolve employment issues,” Variety profiled Tony as one of the best legal minds working in film, television, music, theatre, and digital media.
Tony, partner and chair of the Firm’s West Coast Labor & Employment Department, was noted for handling a number of high-profile cases this past year, including cases for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (The GRAMMY Organization) and for being lead counsel to several clients including Viacom, which is suing Netflix for interfering with high-level executive employment contracts.
This is one of several entertainment industry accolades for Tony. In March 2020, The Hollywood Reporter Power Lawyer list ranked Tony among its “Top 100 Hollywood lawyers” for the fourth consecutive year.
Variety‘s Legal Impact Report spotlights the top attorneys in the entertainment business who have helped shape the industry over the past year. These are the litigators who fight for their high-profile clients in court, the transactional lawyers who cut the deals shaping modern Hollywood, and the in-house attorneys who manage the business affairs of agencies, studios, networks and streamers.
Honorees are being recognized during Variety’s virtual Power of Law Breakfast on July 15.
