FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CENTURY CITY—April 13, 2023—The Hollywood Reporter has named O’Melveny partners Amy Siegel and Molly Lens to its prestigious 2023 "Power Lawyers” list.
The special report spotlights the “100 most influential attorneys in the entertainment industry” who are “negotiating top-dollar deals and arguing high-stakes legal battles.”
Amy Siegel, co-head of O’Melveny’s Entertainment, Sports and Media Group, was honored as a “Power Lawyer” for the fourth consecutive year. The Hollywood Reporter noted that Siegel “made waves” when she advised Korean entertainment company CJ ENM on its acquisition of an 80% stake of Endeavor Content for US$850 million. Siegel also represented Disney and Marvel Studios in a 20-year licensing deal with Stan Lee Universe, counseled FuboTV in a multi-year first-look deal with Ryan Reynolds’ production company Maximum Effort Productions, and advised Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment on its release of Batman-based NFT collections. She told the publication that the key to success in Hollywood is to “cherish good relationships with good people.”
The Hollywood Reporter’s profile of Molly Lens, co-head of O'Melveny's Entertainment, Sports, and Media Group, highlighted her work “on the front lines of high-profile copyright termination disputes.” Lens is currently defending Paramount Pictures in a copyright lawsuit over the billion-dollar Oscar-nominated blockbuster film Top Gun: Maverick and is representing Marvel in a series of lawsuits against writers and artists seeking copyright termination rights for several iconic characters. “Litigation in this space is complicated and will have implications far beyond those [termination] notices, as the case law is really developing,” said Lens.
