Robert Offer is the legal force behind producer-director Michael Bay in his long-term deals for franchises including “Transformers” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” He represented British superstar Benedict Cumberbatch, closing the multipicture deal for “Dr. Strange,” and 2016 Best Actress Oscar winner (“Room”) Brie Larson in her latest film, “The Glass Castle.”
His clients include such luminaries as Ashton Kutcher, Paul Giamatti, Katie Holmes, Ewan McGregor, Jack O’Connell, Ryan Gosling, Andrew Garfield, and Edward Norton. Offer sealed the Netflix deal for Angelina Jolie to direct “First They Killed My Father,” one of many films on which he has represented her. Most recently, he became part of Jolie’s legal team in her high-profile divorce from Brad Pitt. Offer’s history with Jolie includes fierce protection of her privacy, a role he continues to play from his first statement to Reuters in reference to the Brangelina divorce.
Offer established his firm with partner Jason Sloane in 2002 with a cadre of attorneys whose comparative youth and energy attracted clients on the A list. Variety called their roster “one of the most prestigious in the biz” a decade ago, and the descriptor continues to apply.
Offer is a graduate of Tufts University and the UCLA School of Law.
