United States: Fox Rothschild Adds Two Entertainment Partners
Last Updated: March 26 2015

Lincoln Bandlow and David Aronoff were recently quoted in the Daily Journal article "Fox Rothschild Adds Two Entertainment Partners."  Full text can be found in the March 17, 2015, issue, but a synopsis is below.

Media and intellectual property lawyers Lincoln Bandlow and David Aronoff have joined Fox Rothschild LLP as partners in the Los Angeles office. 

The two will work within Fox Rothschild's First Amendment and media defense practice, which handles intellectual property, defamation, privacy law, and right of publicity claims.

"We had been approached by Jeff Kravitz just before he started the firm, and at the time couldn't commit but we stayed in touch," said Bandlow. "Over the years we saw the firm had the kind of media people we liked and wanted to work with and it had the national blueprint we wanted."

In 2010, Bandlow successfully defended an investigative filmmaker against Dole Food Co. over a documentary called "Bananas!*" about the fruit giant's legal battle with Nicaraguan plantation workers.

"Lincoln and David have a nice body of work and high-profile cases that made them an attractive 'get,' as well as longstanding relationships with our partners on the West Coast and East Coast," said managing partner Darrell Miller. "Everybody is really excited about the really high-level First Amendment and entertainment litigation work they do."

Aronoff recently represented "Section 6" screenwriter Aaron Berg in a dispute between Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. and Universal Pictures Inc. over whether Berg's script, which tells the story of MI-6's founding during WWII, infringed on James Bond. The parties settled in January.

A big draw for Aronoff was Fox Rothschild's bicoastal presence.

"When you represent big media companies, it's very common to get involved in actions on both coasts, so having a New York office is critical," Aronoff said. "Having additional resources available to us, like the transactional and media attorneys at Fox Rothschild, is going to allow us to significantly expand our practice."
