Power Lawyers 2011
It's a safe bet that Katz probably won't be invited to next year's Golden Globe Awards. The hyper-savvy litigator is repping Dick Clark Productions in the high-profile suit filed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association over long-term rights to the lucrative telecast. A trial is set for September, with the future of the Globes on the line. He also continues to rep Disney in the appeal of last summer's $320 million jury award to Who Wants to Be a Millionaire producer Celador as well as mogul Haim Saban in his dispute with a tax lawyer (which was resolved in June).
OFF-DUTY Katz swims four days a week and whenever he can, he gets away to his favorite resort on Bora Bora.
