Stubbs Alderton & Markiles is pleased to announce that Daniel Rozansky has been ranked in the 2019 edition of Chambers and Partners for Litigation: Media & Entertainment. He has received this honor for the past 8 years consecutively. Chambers and Partners rank individual lawyers in their practice area(s) on the basis of their legal knowledge and experience, their ability, their effectiveness, and their client-service. The rankings are determined by 150 editors and researchers who talk to lawyers and clients year-round, conducting in-depth phone interviews.
Daniel Rozansky is a Partner of the firm in the Business Litigation Practice. Clients engage Dan before disputes ever arise to advise on strategies to minimize litigation risk and to put clients in a position for a successful outcome if litigation does arise. For example, he regularly reviews television pilots, screenplays and other material in development to assist those clients in identifying and avoiding potential liabilities; he advises clients, including Fortune 100 companies, on best practices for recording communications; he counsels clients on best practices to protect trade secrets and other confidential information; and he guides clients contemplating exiting unfavorable business relationships. When disputes arise, Dan brings his decades of experience at AmLaw 100 and 200 firms and his relentless approach help achieve the best possible outcome for his clients. This approach has led Dan to be recognized as an industry leader, including being listed as a top entertainment and media litigator in Chambers USA (2011-2018). In 2013, 2014, and 2016, he was featured in Variety’s “Legal Impact Report,” which names the top attorneys who are making a significant impact in the entertainment industry.
In areas of entertainment and media litigation, Dan represents clients across multiple platforms including film, television, music, concerts and touring, and digital media. As a result of his well-recognized skills, Dan has prevailed in a number of high-stakes entertainment cases, including some of Hollywood’s most significant cases in the areas of copyright, trademark, First amendment, profit participation, reality television, right of publicity, rights of privacy and breach of implied contract.
Dan’s achievements are not limited to the entertainment industry. He has successfully represented clients in the real estate, toy, banking, insurance, restaurant, clothing, luxury goods, and travel industries, in such areas as trade secrets, partnership, contract, and unfair competition disputes. While Dan is known for his willingness to “take it all the way”, Dan’s goal is to design a strategy to put his clients in the best position for early dismissal including through motions to dismiss, anti-SLAPP motions, summary judgment motions, and favorable settlements. As a result, not only has Dan achieved early dismissal of multiple claims and actions, but he has also prevailed in cases short of trial, resulting in significant recoveries. When cases do go to trial, Dan has achieved great success at the state, federal and appellate levels. In all instances when his clients prevail, Dan looks for opportunities to recover their attorneys’ fees and has, in fact, recovered millions of dollars in fees for his clients.
