Loeb & Loeb is pleased to announce the arrival of veteran trial lawyer John M. Gatti to the firm’s Litigation department in Los Angeles.

“John is widely known and respected in the entertainment community,” said Daniel Murphy, co-chair of Loeb & Loeb’s Litigation department. “He brings with him deep experience and an impressive track record, which will allow us to further expand the services we can provide to entertainment, media and sports clients as they address their most high-stakes disputes.”

Gatti represents studios, television networks, film financers, talent, gaming and sports entities, and independent entertainment production companies in a wide range of entertainment and intellectual property protection disputes, including breach of contract, unfair competition, copyright and trademark infringement, and media torts. In addition to his entertainment clients, Gatti also represents and advises leading business clients in complex transactions as well as in litigation and pre-litigation counseling involving cutting-edge business and legal issues outside the media and entertainment industry.
