Power Lawyers 2012
Three years after Passin client Cher filed suit against Universal claiming she and Sonny Bono are owed $5 million in royalties, the case heads to trial in August. Passin, a rare-music litigation specialist, says he'll use the case to challenge record company practices. He's also repping Poison in a copyright action over the song "Talk Dirty to Me."
