The Sloane Offer Partners
(Jason Sloane, Robert Offer, David Weber and Warren Dern)

Hollywood Law Impact Report

Firm: Sloane Offer Weber & Dern

The practice: Founded in 2002, this boutique firm is one of the youngest and hottest in the biz. All the partners are alumni of large, established firms such as Bloom Hergott (where Offer and Weber originally worked), Hansen Jacobson (Sloane’s previous firm) and Nelson Felker (where Dern was a partner).

“Because we’re so small, we can all really work together,” Offer says, noting that his firm has seven lawyers, in comparison with the nearly three dozen found at most major firms. “When you come with us, you get the benefit of a law firm, not a lawyer.”

The Young Turk partners — all are in their early 40s — are a generation younger than most of their peers, and their client list is similarly youthful: Angelina Jolie, Michael Bay, Will Smith, Jack Black, Spike Jonze and Mark Wahlberg. The roster is one of the most prestigious in the biz — six of the firm’s clients received Academy Award nominations this year, including Ryan Gosling, Djimon Hounsou and “Little Miss Sunshine” directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris.

POV: “It’s just getting harder and harder to make deals,” Offer says. “We used to make just straight studio deals. But now we’re doing more independently financed movie deals, and those deals are tougher to make.”
