Eisner PC Marks New York Expansion with Addition of Litigation Stars

Eisner PC, the Los Angeles-based law firm that operates one of the
nation’s premier practices in business- and entertainment-related
matters, today announced its expansion in New York with the opening of a
new Midtown office and the addition of a highly respected litigation
team.

Leslie
Corwin and Simon Miller, who have practiced together at multiple
AmLaw 100 law firms, will be joining Eisner in New York as
partners, where they will be expanding the firm’s office along with two
attorneys from Eisner.

“It’s an exciting and natural step in the evolution of our firm to open
this office in New York—a capital of business and entertainment where we
already have been actively serving clients for years,” said firm chair Michael
Eisner. “Les and Simon bring immediate and additional credibility to
our presence in New York and offer an ideal complement to our existing
litigation practice.”

In 1999, Eisner founded the eponymous business and entertainment law
firm that represents numerous media and entertainment companies,
investment firms, REITs, banks, and ultra high-net-worth individuals and
family offices, providing both transactional and litigation services.

Corwin and Miller are renowned for litigating disputes surrounding the
breakup of partnerships and other businesses. No lawyer has handled more
ownership disputes involving law and accounting firms than Corwin, whose
past engagements include the dissolution of Heller Ehrman, which once
had more than 700 lawyers in 15 international offices. He and Miller
have litigated issues of first impression and have also represented a
wide array of financial services providers, professional services firms,
and real estate developers. They are joining Eisner from the AmLaw 100
firm Blank Rome LLP.

“Eisner’s quality of work and growth trajectory made it impossible to
resist the opportunity to spearhead the firm’s efforts in New York,”
Corwin and Miller said in a joint statement. “We are deeply impressed
with the firm’s high-level corporate, real estate, and litigation
capabilities, which will benefit our clients greatly.”

They will be joined in the New York office by current Eisner partner Doreen
Small, former general counsel of Ford Models, Inc. and senior
intellectual property counsel to NBC, where her clients included
Saturday Night Live; and Ali
Grace Marquart, former director of business and legal affairs for
Wilhelmina Models, one of the world’s most influential model management
companies.
