Aydin Caginalp: Legal eagle

Dealmakers Impact Report 2010

Aydin Caginalp
Partner, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips

Working within the firm’s corporate and entertainment group, Caginalp handles transactional legal services for business enterprises with an ear toward popular music. He co-authored a chapter in “Inside the Minds: The Music Business” (Aspatore Books) and made the Best Lawyers in America list each year from 2006 to 2011.

KEY DEALS: Deals on behalf of BMG Rights Management, which is owned by KKR and Bertelsmann and “doesn’t have the historic trappings of a music publishing company” in an industry that has fallen victim to digital exploitation, he says. Caginalp facilitated about $300 million worth of music acquisitions in the past year, including songs from Britney Spears, Ricky Martin, Will.i.am, the Eagles, and Jim Morrison. Gets jazzed about artists like Elvis or John Denver, noting how “it’s fun to listen to these and then relate to the agreement that you’re reading.”

SPARE TIME: Sailing, antique sports cars.

TOP CAUSE: Medical research.
