Client Comments

"Dan Black from GT is one of the best lawyers I have ever had the opportunity to work with, and I've worked with plenty. For someone who works in the entertainment industry but whose company is based outside of Los Angeles, I find it can be really tough to keep abreast of what's going on and what's important. Dan cuts through the chaff and gives me only what I need to know, when I need to know it. Dan knows the new media issues for linear entertainment and also the linear entertainment issues for new media, making him a great crossover lawyer when you want a one-stop shop. He's amazingly friendly to deal with and respectful of my time, which is also great."

"Dan Black is premiere among his peers in civility, responsiveness, and transactional excellence. His representation of his client is paramount and his experience in and knowledge of the motion picture and television industry makes him the ideal counsel for clients in this industry."
