Hergott is one of the top legal eagles in entertainment with such A-list clients as Brad Pitt, Russell Crowe, and uber-producers Kathleen Kennedy (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) and husband Frank Marshall (“Jurassic World”).

Also repped Rich Ross, formerly CEO of TV production house Shine America, when he joined Discovery Channel in 2015. Hergott’s other clients include Alan Ball (HBO’s “True Blood”), David Heyman, who produced all eight “Harry Potter” movies and David Yates, the prolific British director who helmed the last four of the blockbuster Potter films. Heyman produced and Yates directed the new hit Potter spin-off “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
Hergott graduated from The University of Michigan, A.B., with high distinction, and Northwestern University, J.D.
