Beverly Hills Bar Assn. Names NINA SHAW Entertainment Lawyer Of The Year


Nina Shaw Honored as Entertainment Lawyer of the YearCongratulations to respected Entertainment Law colleague Nina Shaw who has been named an “Entertainment Lawyer of the Year” by the Beverly Hills Bar Association.

“Last year’s Beverly Hills Bar Association entertainment lawyer of the year dinner for litigator Marty Singer featured former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, a racy Tom Arnold routine that referred to his ex-wife Roseanne as a “crazy bitch” and a surprise roast by Charlie Sheen in which the actor said Singer had “f—ed more people than I have.”

Needless to say, everyone knew this year’s ELOY event honoring talent dealmaker Nina Shaw would be a less raucous affair. The dinner gathering at the Beverly Hills Hotel drew Shaw’s partners at the Del Shaw Moonves Tanaka Finkelstein & Lezcano firm as well as clients such as Arsenio Hall and a tribute video featuring Jamie Foxx, Nick Cannon and others.

A less flashy evening was fitting for a lawyer whose reputation is as a mild-mannered, steadfast negotiator who rarely finds herself in the spotlight (The Hollywood Reporter once put Shaw on the cover of its annual Power Lawyers issue and she nearly died of embarrassment). . .”
