    Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof & Fishman

    One of the town's friendliest lawyers isn't afraid to get tough on behalf of director clients Pete Berg, who's making the $200 million Battleship for Universal, and Joe Kosinski, who is following Tron: Legacy with Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise. Working closely with partners Barry Hirsch, Bob Wallerstein, Georg Hayum and Howard Fishman, list newbie Matlof handled Josh Lucas' deal to star in NBC's series adaptation of The Firm; shepherded Lauren Shuler Donner's producing deal for X-Men: First Class and the upcoming The Wolverine; and helped former MGM executive Mary Parent set up a dozen projects at Paramount as part of her first-look deal.
