Entertainment/Intellectual property partner Chuck Googe was featured in Variety’s Dealmakers Elite New York 2018 report, which features attorneys and executives behind some of the year’s most significant entertainment industry transactions. Among other deals, Chuck was recognized for his work advising diversified talent agency Endeavor in its receipt of a $1 billion investment from a trio of financiers. Describing an emerging trend among young people away from digital media and towards more live, out-of-home entertainment experiences, Chuck notes that “the youth demographic is actively using its smartphones less and trying to engage the real world more.”October 1, 2018
