Veteran entertainment attorney John Branca has been advancing the careers of recording artists and music companies for more than four decades. Marty Bandier, CEO/Chairman of Sony/ATV Music Publishing called him “the #1 publishing lawyer in the country” while late global pop star Michael Jackson hailed him as “the greatest lawyer of our time.” As partner at the prominent entertainment law firm Ziffren Brittenham LLP, Branca’s clients have included over 30 members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He also serves as chairman of the Michael Jackson Company. Branca will share his unique professional journey and insights into his professional collaboration with some of the music industry’s biggest talents.

Presented by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, the L.A. Sounds Now virtual event series offers a unique snapshot of the global music industry through engaging conversations with diverse industry leaders led by School of Music Inaugural Dean, Eileen L. Strempel. This fall, we explore the emerging challenges and opportunities facing the music industry as a result of COVID-19.
