Ryan Baker Quoted by Business Insider on Hollywood M&A Frenzy

In a January 31, 2022 Business Insider article, Co-Managing Partner and Litigator Ryan Baker addressed the M&A frenzy in Hollywood observing that “traditional media companies are trying to pivot.”

The current streaming wars are periods of disruption that foster M&A activity said Baker. In order not to be left behind, it’s “quite common for entrenched incumbent players tied to existing technology to not be as nimble,” Baker said. As a result, traditional media companies pursue a strategy of acquiring rather than developing new technologies.

Baker and the firm regularly handle high-stakes litigation matters in the fields of entertainment and technology, often at the intersection of disruptive technology and complex legal issues.
