Howard Weitzman and Larry Iser Named to Billboard’s 2020 “Top Music Lawyers”

The firm would like to congratulate Howard Weitzman and Larry Iser for being selected to Billboard’s prestigious “Top Music Lawyers” list for 2020. Billboard highlighted Weitzman’s work with Michael Jackson’s estate and his representation of clients including Justin Bieber, Ivan Reitman, and Chuck Lorre. The publication noted Larry’s representation of producer/songwriters Justin Raisen, Jeremiah Raisen, and Justin “Yves” Rothman in their action against Lizzo over credit and royalties for her single “Truth Hurts.” Billboard also mentions that Larry obtained a dismissal of breach of contract and copyright infringement claims against Reach Music Publishing in an action brought by Flavor Flav of Public Enemy.

Each year, Billboard profiles a limited number of top music attorneys whose work in licensing, lobbying and litigating have a major impact on the industry. To view the full list, click here.
