Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
One Global Mediation LLC, a full-service provider of access to mediation and dispute resolution services, announced today that attorney John Reagan has affiliated with the panel and will lead its Entertainment and Media sector.
One Global Mediation offers an innovative alternative to retired-judge mediation for business and professional disputes. The firm’s attorney and business professional mediators bring a broad range of practice areas and executive-level industry expertise, offering real-world legal experience, acute business insight and even-handed guidance to dispute resolution. The firm’s Entertainment and Media sector handles a broad range of disputes in film, television and digital media, involving agency and management agreements, contracts, intellectual property and copyright, licensing and franchising, Internet and television distribution and syndication, publishing and properties, and production financing and insurance.
“I am so pleased to have John Reagan lead our Entertainment and Media sector. He has an exceptional evaluative mediation style – he insists on understanding the complete picture, knows how to flush out the strengths and weaknesses of the parties’ legal positions, and, when appropriate, has no problem calling them out on difficult areas. He knows how to urge the parties toward resolution, and in getting them to explore every option – monetary and non-monetary. This can lead not only to settlement of that particular dispute, but lay the foundation for a mutually beneficial future relationship between once litigating businesses. John’s career-long ability to bring parties together to fashion creative solutions to some of the industry’s most labyrinthine disputes makes him particularly suitable to the business to business approach offered by One Global Mediation,” said Linda Landry Miller, One Global Mediation LLC president and founder.
Mr. Reagan served 35 years as a lead lawyer, consultant, and business affairs executive for Paramount, Disney, DreamWorks, MGM, Netflix, and Warner Bros. Mr. Reagan’s legal experience extends across the entire spectrum of motion picture, television, and related businesses, including copyright, guild relations, licensing and acquisition. In particular, Mr. Reagan is broadly conversant with all of the related areas of copyright, rights acquisition, and profit participation agreements, and all forms of distribution, from music licensing, dubbing and subtitling matters, to piracy protection and supply chain issues for physical media. He is accomplished in advising executives, making deals, crafting agreements, managing legal teams and resolving internal employee complaints and external contract disputes to avoid commencement of arbitration or litigation.
Mr. Reagan commented, “It’s a real honor to be invited to join Linda Landry Miller’s extraordinary panel of mediators at the launch of One Global Mediation. I’m excited about the opportunity to work through her firm in the burgeoning field of mediation, especially since I believe One Global Mediation has developed an approach to professional and business dispute resolution that is so in sync with the ever greater need to resolve disputes more expeditiously and cost effectively than has been possible through litigation, or even formal arbitration.”
Reagan received his B.A. Degree in English Literature from Le Moyne College, in Syracuse, New York, and his J.D. Degree from the Boston University School of Law. He is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Beverly Hills Bar Association, as well as the California State Bar. In addition to decades of on the job practical experience, Mr. Reagan has earned more than 100 hours in formal certified mediation and arbitration training with UC Hastings School of Law and the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
