Jeffrey S. Finkelstein is a partner in the firm. He practices entertainment transactional law where he advises, strategizes, and works closely alongside his clients to help them fully realize their creative initiatives and projects. Inspired by his clients’ passion and commitment, Jeff specializes in the representation of writers, producers, actors and other on-camera talent, directors, executives, entrepreneurs, rights holders, creators, IP and production companies across the television, film and digital media spaces, as well their extensions and ancillary opportunities.
Jeff loves to work closely with clients to nurture their careers to full potential while they satisfy project-specific goals and consumer interests. He brings a unique empathy to his clients’ efforts, tapping into his own personal artistic spirit, and has a great appreciation for the rigors of the creative process, both professionally and personally. Much more than a legal advisor, he invests himself heavily in his clients’ success, finding their achievements deeply and emotionally rewarding.
With the media industry constantly evolving, Jeff continues to expand his transactional capabilities through his work with entrepreneurial types and opportunities in new media. He welcomes the uncertainty and challenges brought by clients and aims to bring a solution-based approach to their careers.
Jeff has two grown children, one on a career path in entertainment and the other in college. He lives with his wife in the hills of Los Angeles.
