If you have a free hours few this week, we highly recommend you peruse the extensive breakdown of the city’s top power attorneys in entertainment on The Hollywood Reporter. Included is a diary from Tom Cruise’s attorney (Bert Fields) that reveals what went down from the time Katie Holmes filed for divorce until the settlement, a highly artistic photo shoot of Lindsay Lohan, Christian Bale, Jonah Hill, and more, with their respective lawyers, coverage from THR’s Power Attorney breakfast, and even has a piece on “how to write an effectively nasty lawyer letter” brought to you by Marty Singer (that would be Charlie Sheen‘s lawyer).
Excerpt: Meet Tom Cruise’s protector, Ryan Seacrest‘s dealmaker and the woman keeping Lindsay Lohan out of jail as THR reveals the top 100 entertainment attorneys in America, (as Bert Fields and Allan Mayefsky did in July for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, respectively), saving a deal that’s about to fall apart (as Jeanne Newman did for Mad Men’s Matthew Weiner) or being first on the scene when a client dies (as Kenny Meiselas was with Whitney Houston).
