The ultra-aggressive litigator has developed a unique specialty: representing talent agencies and managers when clients don't pay commissions. This year, he sued Chris Pine on behalf of the actor's former agency SDB Partners, which settled. He also settled a manager's claim against Melissa Joan Hart and a $100 million case against reality star Bethenny Frankel over her former management company's share of the Skinnygirl franchise. He won a ruling that Men in Black 3 director Barry Sonnenfeld owes commissions to UTA and he brought a similar case for ICM against Jersey Shore star Pauly D.
