Barnes & Thornburg LLP, a national law firm, announced today that prominent entertainment attorney, Carolyn Hunt, will join the firm as partner. Known as a savvy dealmaker, Hunt has deep experience representing clients in entertainment-related transactions, with an emphasis on film and television finance and distribution.
Having been involved in more than $2 billion in financing for hundreds of film, television and gaming projects, including many award-winning films, Hunt recently represented the financiers of the first major feature film to premiere on the world’s leading Internet TV network and in select IMAX theaters globally on the same day. She also worked on behalf of the financier of the largest Chinese language film ever shot in Los Angeles. Hunt comes to the firm from Loeb & Loeb LLP.
“Barnes & Thornburg has experience in virtually all the legal practice areas required to do business in today’s global marketplace,” Hunt said. “I look forward to working with my new partners and marrying my expertise with theirs to efficiently deliver the highest level advisory service and solutions to our clients.”
Hunt joins the Corporate Department and Entertainment, Media and Sports Practice Group in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Also joining the firm as of counsel is entertainment attorney Samuel Roseme.
“The addition of Carolyn and Samuel adds to the strength of the firm’s growing Entertainment, Media and Sports Practice Group,” said Jason Karlov, chair of that practice group. “Coupled with other recent team additions, their experience continues to enhance our capabilities both regionally and nationally to achieve our goal of providing creative, high-quality legal work to our clients.”
“Carolyn and Sam bring a wealth of experience that will benefit our clients as they pursue film and other media finance transactions,” said David Allen, managing partner of Barnes & Thornburg’s Los Angeles office. “We’re thrilled that they have joined our firm.”
