P. John Burke Named a THR Power Lawyer for Eighth Consecutive Year

Akin Gump is pleased to announce that P. John Burke, who heads the firm’s entertainment and media practice, has once again been named to The Hollywood Reporter’s Power Lawyers list. This is his eighth recognition out of the eight years they have been awarded.

The Power Lawyers list comprises the 100 most influential entertainment attorneys in the United States in the categories of talent, litigation and corporate. THR grouped Burke among the 16 “best corporate lawyers in the business.”

Burke is recognized in this year’s edition for his work helping “RatPac-Dune …sign a reported $450 million deal with Warner Bros. to co-finance and co-produce 75 new Warner Bros. and New Line titles over four years.”

THR also noted his involvement in “Content Partners' reported $400 million purchase of Goldman Sachs' half interest in the TV franchise CSI,” which was spotlighted in his 2013 recognition as a “key deal.”
