Power Lawyers 2012
Dick Wolf's longtime lawyer shepherded the superproducer's upcoming Chicago Fire and his reality series Stars Earn Stripes, both for NBC. And he's become a go-to negotiator for TV creators. Gilbert-Lurie handled Bruce Helford's pact to executive produce Charlie Sheen's FX sitcom Anger Management, he helped move John Walsh's America's Most Wanted from Fox to Lifetime, and client Claire Danes is earning Emmy buzz for her Showtime series Homeland (Gilbert-Lurie is about to start renegotiating her contract). He and partner Sam Fischer recently branched out to rep tech giant Microsoft.
➻ My first client Wolf, whom he signed about 25 years ago. "Our first meeting was at Universal, where Dick watched me negotiate against Shel Mittleman and his team. Dick called me later and said he loved my 'iron hand in the velvet glove' approach, and we've been together ever since."
