J. Martin Willhite, general counsel for Legendary Entertainment, recently told the Daily Journal that the entertainment company relied on O'Melveny for advice on issues related to a joint venture it launched in Asia last year.
In a January 19, 2012 article titled, "GC Q&A Profile: J. Martin Willhite," the executive said Legendary "worked with O'Melveny & Myers LLP's Hong Kong lawyers quite a bit on financial regulations and stock exchange items."
In June 2011, O'Melveny lawyers advised Legendary on the formation of Legendary East Ltd., a Hong Kong-based entertainment company that will develop and produce China-themed feature motion pictures for a global audience. Legendary Entertainment teamed with Huayi Brothers Media Corp., a leading Chinese media conglomerate, and entrepreneur Kelvin Wu to form the new company.
