Veteran entertainment attorney Daniel H. Black is set to join Greenberg Traurig as a shareholder in the firm’s expanding Los Angeles entertainment practice.

In Black’s 20-plus years of practice, his clients have included production and distribution companies, showrunners and producers, syndication entities and on-air television and sports talent. He also has substantial experience in structuring international co-productions, helping to access money from the public and private sectors for productions around the globe.
