Stanton "Larry" Stein JD '69 is a partner in the Los Angeles office of Liner Grode Stein Yankelevitz Sunshine Regenstreif and Taylor, in the firm's Entertainment & Media Litigation department. His clientele includes actors, writers, directors, producers, musicians, entertainment guilds, talent agencies, personal and business management companies, independent production companies and interactive gaming companies.

Throughout the last decade, Stein has initiated numerous lawsuits challenging vertical integration. Stein's efforts have changed the face of contract negotiation between networks, their affiliated production companies and talent. Stein has brought forth countless lawsuits on behalf of his clients against conglomerates that were self-dealing on licensing fees and a variety of other revenue streams. In turn, his work in this area has drastically affected the way conglomerates and media corporations previously manipulated negotiations to best serve the corporations’ interests. Additionally, Stein’s work has changed how revenue is more evenly allocated amongst profit participants including actors, directors, writers and producers. He is widely known in the entertainment industry as being the primary person to take on Hollywood studios, a task not many have the ability, or the courage, to assume.

In addition to his groundbreaking litigation against vertical integration, Stein is also changing the face of reality television copyright infringement and has a long history of bringing defamation actions against publications and private individuals. As a result of his actions, he has been able to secure dozens of confidential settlements and retractions on behalf of his clients.

Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich wrote an op-ed criticizing Rudy Guiliani's handling of President Trump's post-election legal efforts. "Rudy was always an attention hog, taking credit for things he had nothing to do with," she wrote. "This time, as he himself has made clear, he has a great deal to do with everything that is slowing down the orderly transition of power, which is the hallmark of a democracy." The op-ed also appeared in The Joplin Globe.
