Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP is expanding its Entertainment & Media Practice as it adds music attorney Charles J. “Jeff” Biederman as a shareholder in its Los Angeles office. He joins the firm from Manatt.
Biederman has worked on more than $1 billion in music catalogue deals in recent years and represents a wide variety of artists, including Dierks Bentley and the estate of Miles Davis. His practice includes representation of artists, entrepreneurs, and companies in the areas of music, television, film, digital media, fashion and branding, and advertising.
“Jeff’s arrival highlights our commitment to meeting the needs of our clients in a rapidly changing marketplace and ensuring that we remain the preeminent global law firm in the entertainment and media sector,” says Bobby Rosenbloum, chairman of the firm’s global practice group.
Biederman’s recent work includes representing Round Hill Music Royalty Fund Ltd. in the acquisition of a publishing catalogue valued at $363 million. He also represented Downtown Music Holdings in its sale of 145,000 copyrights to Concord Music, capturing Downtown’s entire owned and co-published music catalog.
“We continue to strategically expand our team with best in class lawyers who have noted reputations in the entertainment sector,” shares Daniel H. Black , vice chairman of the firm’s global practice and chairman of the West Coast Entertainment and Media Practice. “Jeff’s extensive experience and connections will help us continue to strengthen and expand the capabilities of our Los Angeles office and our global entertainment team.”
“The entertainment marketplace is a global marketplace,” Biederman comments. “We all work in a global media space. When I’m doing licensing deals in Europe or Asia, having experienced colleagues in markets like London and Milan, is incredibly helpful. I know that for any question that comes up, there’s a Greenberg Traurig lawyer somewhere in the world who can answer it.”
Biederman earned his B.A. from Cornell University and his J.D. from the Vanderbilt University School of Law.
