Frankfurt Kurnit Expands With Century City Office

Frankfurt, Kurnit, Klein & Selz has opened a new office in Century City, with five attorneys including entertainment group partner Andrew Hurwitz and litigation group partner Jeremy Goldman.

Hurwitz, who has represented talent and media companies in transactions for almost 20 years, is leading the expansion into California. His clients include James Gunn, Nicole Perlman, Jenn Lee, the Roald Dahl Estate and Hasbro, as well as Tom McCarthy, who won a screenplay Oscar for “Spotlight.”

Goldman has represented companies and individual clients in media, entertainment, advertising, and technology, including on digital issues, film and TV contracts, trademarks and right of publicity. He represented Hasbro in a dispute over the motion picture rights to “Dungeons and Dragons,” with a settlement reached in which Warner Bros. will move forward on a feature film while rights have been unified and returned to a Hasbro subsidiary.

Hurwitz and Goldman moved to Los Angeles from New York. The firm was founded there 40 years ago, serving clients there in media and entertainment as well as advertising and intellectual property.

Partner Rick Kurnit has handled intellectual property and right of publicity cases, including ones involving a “Gone with the Wind” parody and another involving a Vanna White lookalike.

“We’ve seen our practice expand so that not only are our entertainment clients here, but significant brand, ad agency, and video game clients are as well,” Hurwitz said in a statement. “We’re excited for the benefits of having an L.A. office staffed by lawyers from several of our practice areas representing clients who are based on the West Coast. Being here at a time when, in many respects, Hollywood is the strongest it has been in years, means our clients are poised for even more success.”
