Dec. 8, 2021 – For the second straight year, The Hollywood Reporter (THR) has named Davis Wright Tremaine partners Gray Coleman and Elizabeth McNamara to its list of the Top 20 Entertainment Attorneys in New York.

The annual list, now in its second year, honors those lawyers who "are at the top of the game," says THR.

Coleman has decades of experience handling financing for theater, film, and television, as well as music and publishing matters. THR noted that his clients include the Public Theatre, Manhattan Theatre Club, and Annapurna Theatre and that he also serves as production counsel for film and TV series and theatrical projects like Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag.

McNamara has a "booming First Amendment practice," the magazine said, noting her successful defense this past year of clients that include the Showtime hit "Billions" and "Who Is America?" starring Sacha Baron Cohen.

Davis Wright Tremaine's media and entertainment group is widely recognized as an industry leader, with a client roster that includes the world's leading tech companies, most admired traditional media organizations, and other innovative players in digital media, advertising, and more. In 2020, the team was named a Law360 Practice Group of the Year for the fifth consecutive time.
