Dealmakers Impact Report 2012: Legal Eagles

Grode repped Summit Entertainment in its January sale to Lionsgate. “It was tricky because they were in the same business and literally around the corner from each other,” says Grode. “There was a lot of confidential and competitively sensitive data that we had to disclose at various stages of the transaction” as deal talks progressed. He also represented the Media Content Capital fund, which has $200 million in committed capital from high net-worth individuals and some companies with strategic interests in media, which invested in excess of $25 million in film company QED Intl. in May. Last year, he worked on Miramax’s $500 million securitized bond offering. “It was unique because securitizations are not commonly done with films,” Grode says. “I think it was just the third time for a securitization for film assets; the first was the Marvel deal back in 2005, which we also did.”

Outside the office: Three kids and their sports teams, including coaching some of them.

Top cause: Special Olympics Southern California.
