Legal eagle Grubman makes Shire a partner

Name to change to Grubman Indursky & Shire on Jan. 1

Grubman Indursky, one of Gotham’s leading entertainment and media law firms, is promoting its film and TV maven Lawrence Shire to partner and as of Jan. 1 will change its name to Grubman Indursky & Shire.

Move comes in the wake of the resignation of Paul Shindler, 58, who stepped down unexpectedly last January. His name, too, was embossed on the company name plate.

Shire, who joined the firm 15 years ago from Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, specializes in film, television, publishing and fashion. He reps Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Barbara Walters, Robert De Niro and Tribeca Prods., Vera Wang, Amazon.com and Maxim magazine.

Grubman Indursky, which was founded by Allen Grubman and Arthur Indursky more than 30 years ago, began as a music industry boutique firm but has expanded over the years into a broader-based firm with 30 attorneys.

“Larry has been a key part of the firm’s expansion throughout the entertainment and media industry,” Grubman and Indursky said in a statement. “This name change recognizes his vital role in the firm’s evolution and growth.”

The firm’s clients include U2, Bruce Springsteen, David Geffen and DreamWorks, Madonna, Clive Davis, Elton John, Calvin Klein and David Rockwell.
