LOS ANGELES, May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sklar Kirsh LLP announced today that Scott R. Ehrlich has joined the Firm as a Partner. Ehrlich previously served as General Counsel of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group for nearly nine years.
"Scott provides our clients with tremendous corporate and business expertise," said Firm Co-Chair Jeffrey A. Sklar. "Scott's in-house experience within the media and entertainment industry coupled with his time counseling a variety of clients while practicing at national law firms will expand our brand as Hollywood dealmakers."
Ehrlich stated that while, at his core, he's a corporate M&A and finance specialist, the dozens of high-stakes, post-production and new distribution technology deals he handled at Deluxe gave him a strong familiarity with the major media and entertainment companies and the many different sectors of the entertainment business, including new media. He added that he and partner Michael Rosner, the former General Counsel of Relativity Media, "together give the Firm a great capacity to take on industry-related corporate and commercial transactions."
Ehrlich says his in-house counsel experience provides a special value to Sklar Kirsh clients because, "I have an instinctive understanding of what clients expect from legal counsel and what their concerns are."
"I am delighted to join Sklar Kirsh and its tremendously talented group of professionals providing sophisticated advice and top quality service," said Ehrlich.
Before joining Deluxe, Ehrlich was a Counsel in the corporate finance group of Skadden Arps in New York, having spent almost seven years practicing corporate finance and M&A in that office. Ehrlich holds a B.S. in Commerce from the University of Virginia, and a J.D. from The George Washington University Law School.
