"If asked to recommend a one stop read on legal fundamentals for entertainment industry dealmaking, this 2-volume series would be high on my list. Gail Ross’ chapter on the literary publishing industry is superb!"

Jeff Wilson
VP Contracts, Simon & Schuster

“Things are changing so quickly in the entertainment industry, professionals in every sector of the business are struggling just to keep up.  I can think of no more current or focused resource concerning the rapidly evolving medium of television than Ken Basin's chapters on this topic, and no one more qualified or capable than Ken to serve as a guide through this challenging landscape.”

Nick La Terza
Partner with law firm The Point Media, and former senior legal/business executive for Largo Entertainment, New World Pictures, and Alliance Atlantis Entertainment

"Drawing on their extensive experience as long-term entertainment tax lawyers, Brad and Shane have created a comprehensive summary of the important issues my clients need resolved. They provide great insight into the goals and challenges of estate and tax planning for those in the entertainment industry and how to achieve the best results for their businesses."

Robert Blashek, Esq.
Tax Partner, O'Melveny & Myers

"I am a mediator and arbitrator in the entertainment industry (following a long career as an entertainment attorney and studio/network business affairs executive).  Having a thorough understanding of both basic law and dealmaking custom and practice in this industry is essential to my work.  The Essential Guide to Entertainment Law delivers on both - and I suspect that if more lawyers, executives, entrepreneurs and artists in the entertainment industry familiarized themselves with EG2EL before entering into their contracts, it might lighten my case load."

Fred Kuperberg
Managing Partner, Schuyler Road Advisors, and former EVP and General Counsel, Disney/ABC Cable Networks Group

"As the managing partner at Singer Burke Zimmer, LLP, I am eager to have a concise resource available that covers the complex legal and taxation environment as it relates to the Entertainment Industry, especially with the level of detail and transparency that Shane and Brad have brought to this subject matter.  I highly recommend this book to the tax practitioner, as well as the non-tax practitioner, for an in-depth look at the intricacies and opportunities of today’s changing laws, including the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Congratulations on a book that is bound to help many entrepreneurs, as well as established business owners, as they start/continue their journey.  Job Well Done!"
