Entertainment litigator Miles Feldman has left Los Angeles-based Liner Grode Stein Yankelevitz Sunshine Regenstreif & Taylor, where he was a partner in the entertainment and media litigation department. He has joined the Raines Law Group, which is relaunching as Raines Feldman, a boutique in Beverly Hills, Calif. “For me, it was about the opportunity of building a firm,” said Feldman. “The reason I’m doing this is because I think this is the next phase: Smaller, very nimble firms that offer extremely high value.” Being part of a small firm will allow him to use alternative billing techniques, such as partial contingency fees and budget caps, he said. “This is something we’ll be doing more of and with a lot more focus.” The former Raines Law Group was founded in 2006 by Andrew Raines, a corporate attorney, and focuses on real estate, private equity and hospitality clients. With the addition of Feldman, the firm will add entertainment and intellectual property litigation to its practice areas. Including Raines and Feldman, the firm has 17 lawyers. Feldman expects to add more litigators, both in entertainment and complex business litigation. “We’re going to make litigation a big pillar of the firm,” he said. Feldman joined Liner in 2007 from Los Angeles-based Browne Woods & George, which soon afterward became Dreier Stein Kahan Browne Woods George, the Santa Monica, Calif., affiliate of Dreier LLP. In early 2009, 20 lawyers from Dreier’s West Coast location left to re-form Browne Woods George after federal prosecutors and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission charged the firm’s founder, Marc Dreier, with masterminding a $10 million investment fraud. Dreier pleaded guilty and is serving 20 years in federal prison. Feldman, who has served as chairman of the entertainment section of the Beverly Hills Bar Association, lists as clients the Black Eyed Peas, Will Smith, Teri Hatcher and Activision Inc. He handles a variety of litigation disputes, including those involving licensing, copyright and management agencies.
