Selecting a media and entertainment litigation attorney will have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.
When searching for an attorney to represent you in a media and entertainment case,
you want a firm with deep knowledge and a record of success.
Hagens Berman fights with the creativity and tenacity to continue to raise the bar and take on every case with the goal of achieving the best outcome for the largest group of individuals.
Our firm operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning the victims we represent pay nothing at all unless we win. Attorney fees are paid based on an industry percentage of overall settlement terms, allowing plaintiffs to reap the rewards.
We achieve results, and our track record proves it. While many class-action or individual plaintiff cases result in large legal fees and no meaningful result for the client, Hagens Berman finds ways to return real value.
At the basis of all that motivates Hagens Berman is our mission for corporate reform. It’s through our work that we continue to uphold and fight for the rights of those most vulnerable to corporate greed and negligence.
