The Hollywood Reporter posted their 5th annual Power Attorney list for 2011. Among the five categories, one of them is Talent attorneys. "Talent Dealmakers: Gross points, rich backends and franchise hunting: These attorneys for A-list stars keep them in the stratosphere."
John Branca has been honored as being named a Power Attorney for 2011. The Hollywood Reporter states that "As co-executor of the Michael Jackson estate, Branca controls a burgeoning empire that earned more than $275 million last year. That's more than all other dead celebrities -- including Elvis Presley, J.R.R. Tolkien and John Lennon -- combined. 'We've exceeded expectations on Michael,' he says. OFF-DUTY Branca says he wakes up each morning thinking about the UCLA Bruins." Equally as impressive, nine other attorneys from Branca's firm Ziffren Brittenham were named Power Attorneys for 2011. Also on the list under the category of litigation, Howard Weitzman was honored.
Of the five years that The Hollywood Reporter has named the top Power Attorneys, John Branca has been on the list every year. While some MJ fans may disagree with some of what John Branca has done in the past two years, I personally feel he has worked toward what Michael would have wanted for his legacy. Congratulations to John Branca and Howard Weitzman for their stellar work in their fields of law.
