A Decade of Recognitions: P. John Burke Receives 10th Consecutive THR Power Lawyer Nod

(Los Angeles) – For each of the preceding nine years that The Hollywood Reporter has determined the 100 most influential attorneys in Hollywood, the publication has named Akin Gump entertainment and media practice head P. John Burke to this elite cohort. Now, in the survey’s 10th year, THR has again recognized Mr. Burke as a Power Lawyer, one of the “100 top legal minds in Hollywood.”

In its profile, THR focused on the fact that Mr. Burke specializes in media finance and spotlighted his role in representing CIT Bank in connection with “the largest single-picture production loan in history for an independently produced film —  Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (out in 2017).” The profile also notes his role as RatPac-Dune Entertainment’s counsel in connection with the Warner slate financing.

Most recently, Mr. Burke was again named by Daily Journal to its list of “Top Entertainment Lawyers.” Learn more here.

Founded in 1945, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 900 lawyers in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
