Hollywood Law Firm Movement: Candace Carlo, Adam Mehr Take New Jobs
A bit of shuffling in the entertainment law firm community:
On Monday, talent dealmaker Candace Carlo joined Kleinberg Lange Cuddy & Klein as a new partner. Carlo departed from Greenberg Glusker, where she has represented Hollywood composer Hanz Zimmer on most of his projects. Before joining the law firm community, she worked in-house at Columbia Pictures and TriStar Pictures, putting together deals for Jerry Maguire, Men In Black and My Best Friend’s Wedding, among other films.
Her lateral movement coincides with Matt Galsor recently being named as chair of Greenberg Glusker's entertainment practice.
Meanwhile, another attorney with a studio background has also joined the law firm ranks.
Adam Mehr, former executive vp business affairs and general counsel of Gold Circle Films, has become of counsel at Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp.
In his career, Mehr has also worked at Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema and will now advise entertainment clients on a broad variety of issues, from traditional transactional negotiations to corporate, labor and real estate issues.
