Hansen has been an able representative for A-list longtime clients including Robert Downey Jr. He made the deals that helped transform the actor into one of the biggest and highest paid stars in Hollywood thanks to his roles in the mega-blockbuster franchises “Iron Man,” “Avengers” and “Sherlock Holmes.”

Over the past year he’s also been involved in various corporate transactions, handling the sale of James Dixon’s Dixon Talent to WME, and also helping Jon Stewart create a content company with a deal with HBO Go. He also helped Trigger Street producers Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti take over the bankrupt Relativity Media, with Brunetti becoming president of Relativity and Spacey the chairman.

Hansen, who graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara, B.A. Film Studies, 1975 and University of Southern California Law School, J.D. 1978, formed the law firm now known as HJTHNWRR&K in 1987 along with Craig Jacobson and Walter Teller. Hansen’s practice focuses on all aspects of audio-visual content, including the representation of theatrical motion picture and television directors, producers, actors and writers as well as significant corporate clients.
