It was just two months ago that cable lawyer Terry Bienstock was saying how much he loves it in Miami and how he wouldn’t want to practice anywhere else. After 23 years in private practice, Bienstock left his own firm last week to begin work as executive vice president and general counsel of Comcast Cable Communications’ cable division in Philadelphia. Bienstock declined to say Thursday just what it was Comcast offered that made it worth the move. “Something had to lure me from a very successful law firm,” he said, slyly. He leaves behind six other lawyers — three of them partners and three associates. Two of the partners, Philip Kantor and Hector Rivera, are looking for jobs. Rivera, who practices cable law as well as personal injury law, says the news of his colleague’s departure came as quite a surprise. “They apparently needed him right away, and from everything I have heard, they made him an offer he couldn’t refuse,” says Rivera. Partner Jaime Bianchi says he and three associates will keep the firm going under a new name. As of Oct. 31, it will be known as the Bianchi Law Firm. He says they will continue to practice cable law. “It’s still a work in progress,” says Bianchi, who came to work for Bienstock right out of law school.
