CBS, Par exec joins entertainment and sports practice

O’Melveny & Myers LLP has hired Bruce Tobey, formerly a key exec at CBS Films and Paramount, for its entertainment, sports and media practice.

Tobey’s practice will cover production, distribution, financing and licensing of feature film and TV productions as well as digital media. He also will provide strategic and operational advice to investors and companies in both traditional and new media.

Tobey is the former chief operating officer of CBS Films, which he helped found. His exec duties included the negotiation of strategic agreements, including key distribution and production arrangements.
