Billboard – April 5, 2021:  2021 Top Music Lawyers

We are proud to announce that Miller Barondess partners Sasha Frid and Skip Miller have been honored for the fourth consecutive year on Billboard’s exclusive list of Top Music Lawyers.

Top trial lawyer Sasha Frid is well known in the entertainment industry for representing iconic rock bands, current best-selling rock bands and rap artists, music managers, record labels, and touring companies. His notable music clients include Smokey Robinson, Nile Rodgers, Mötley Crüe, Five Finger Death Punch, Journey and Trey Songz. Sasha is a member of the Recording Academy® and a voting member of the GRAMMY Awards. The Academy supports music people in times of need through MusiCares, and ensures music remains diverse and inclusive through its initiatives.

Top trial lawyer Skip Miller has been a go-to music litigator for decades. He has represented entertainers such as Rod Stewart, Elton John, Nick Nolte, Bob Dylan, Sean Connery, Steven Tyler, Lionel Richie, Axl Rose, Donald Fagen, Don Felder, Gene Simmons, Mötley Crüe, Stone Temple Pilots, and the Tupac Shakur Estate. He also has represented music managers, touring companies and record labels including Universal Music Group and Live Nation.

Frid and Miller recently secured a settlement on behalf of Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain, the remaining principal members of iconic rock band Journey. The settlement ensures that the band continues on its great success of more than 40 years.

The firm’s founders stepped up “through the challenges of the pandemic,” says Frid, on behalf of clients including Five Finger Death Punch, Journey, Mötley Crüe, Smokey Robinson, Nile Rodgers, Trey Songz and Rod Stewart. The experienced trial lawyers took on tasks including securing government loans, assessing tour cancellations and negotiating payment obligations. The firm is representing Robinson in a suit brought by the Motown legend’s former manager seeking past commissions.
