Dealmakers Impact Report 2011: Up Next

As an associate with the firm’s Entertainment, Media and Technology Practice Group, Dollarhide focuses mainly on motion picture and vidgame finance matters, as well as production and distribution.

In the past year, she’s worked on three major game finance deals that are bonded, “which is somewhat unusual and a kind of new deal structure,” she notes. “All three deals involved foreign companies, so there were international legal issues as well.”

She also worked on a corporate restructure and government bond deal, handling the intellectual property aspects relating to the HQ transfer for a major vidgame developer.

“Gaming is now way bigger than movies, and the amount of time that these deals span is often three or four years from the start of development to the game’s release,” she says. “And the amount of money going into these deals and games is really mind-blowing.”

Looking ahead, Dollarhide predicts the deals will become “more complicated but also more standardized.”
