Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks, P.C.


Managing Partner / Head, Motion Picture, TV, Theatre, Publishing, New Media & Sports

Shire’s standout deal of 2022 was closing Chris Licht’s pact to become the new CEO and chairman of CNN, perhaps the most high-profile executive hire of the year. His work for Licht didn’t prevent him from repping CNN’s new parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery, in pacts with execs including Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy. He reps such titans of the sports world as the New England Patriots (signing with Apple and Imagine Films for 10-part docuseries “The Dynasty”) and LeBron James (on all entertainment matters and endorsements, including Nike deals and numerous matters for his company SpringHill), along with Robert De Niro, Spike Lee (new Net­flix deal), Gayle King (new CBS deal), Drake and the estate of David Bowie (sale of catalog to Warner Chappell Music).
