Mandil named exec VP

Sony BMG Music Entertainment has named Daniel M. Mandil exec VP, global general counsel and secretary.

New York-based Mandil will establish overall legal policy for the company and its worldwide operations and oversee all aspects of operations within the Sony BMG law department. Mandil will also serve as the conglom’s liaison to domestic and international music industry trade groups on a wide variety of legal issues and will play a key role in the company’s government relations initiatives.

Most recently, Mandil was a partner in the litigation and technology, media and communications groups of the New York and Washington-based law firm Covington & Burling. There he was a negotiator for numerous deals, including transactions involving synch licenses, ringtone licenses, sub-publishing agreements, Web site co-branding arrangements and the acquisition of music libraries. His clients included General Electric; Zomba Records; Overseas Media, a major producer and distributor of Russian-language television programming; and TV Loonland, a German animation producer and distributor.

In the late ’80s, Mandil served as a judicial clerk for Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
