Legal eagles: O’donnell vs. Fields

Attorneys Pierce O’Donnell, of O’Donnell & Shaeffer and Bert Fields of Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger have become as well known as the clients they represent. O’Donnell, who won a landmark case for Art Buchwald against Paramount Pictures, and Fields, whose client roster boasts the industry’s biggest players, are presently at odds over the genesis of the DreamWorks pic “Amistad.”

O’Donnell is also leading Sony’s litigation charge to capture the James Bond franchise. But when the latest O’Donnell/Fields drama ebbs, industry watchers can count on legal gunslingers Lou Meisinger, of Troop, Meisinger, Stuber & Pasich and Patty Glaser of Christensen, Miller, Fink, Jacobs, Glaser Weil & Shapiro — two equally ubiquitous barristers — to fill the publicized case void. Meisinger is defending the Walt Disney Co. against Jeffrey Katzenberg’s lawsuit and Glaser recently won against the studio one of the entertainment industry’s largest monetary damage awards ($10.3 million) in a breach of contract case involving animated character Marsupilani.
