HOLLYWOOD — Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton said Thursday that the L.A. law firm has named three more partners for its newly formed entertainment practice.
Attorneys Robert Darwell, Benjamin Mulcahy and Shaun Clark will be based in West Los Angeles.
“All three are tremendously talented in all aspects of motion picture and television development, production, finance and distribution,” said Guy Halgren, chair of the firm’s exec committee.
Darwell, Mulcahy and Clark also have deep experience in advertising law issues, firm officials said.
The newly appointed partners join entertainment-law unit’s founding attorneys Lou Meisinger, who recently ankled as general counsel at Disney; Bob Wynne, a former Sony exec; and Dick Troop, an entertainment law vet. Also on board are several other former colleagues of the former Hill Wynne Troop & Meisinger firm who have joined the Sheppard, Mullin unit.
The firm’s entertainment and media practice now has 20 attorneys.
