Variety Magazine Honors Skip Miller and Sasha Frid on the 2018 Legal Impact Report, Recognizing the Top Lawyers in the Entertainment Business
By Variety, 2018 Legal Impact Report – The duo may run a boutique firm, but they litigate major cases. These days, Frid focuses on music clients (Live Nation, Universal Music, Five Finger Death Punch, Motley Crue), while Miller gives more attention to film and TV matters, such as the racial discrimination lawsuits filed by Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios against Comcast and Charter, seeking $20 billion and $10 billion in damages, respectively. Miller repped guitarist Don Felder in his lawsuit against his former band The Eagles and their manager Irving Azoff, but now his firm is working with Azoff and Steely Dan co-founder Donald Fagen in a legal fight with the estate of band co-founder Walter Becker over the right to use the band’s name. “What it comes down to is these clients want to win. That’s why they use us,” he says.
