Manatt Entertainment Leader Jordan Bromley was named to The National Law Journal’s 2022 list of Sports/Gaming/Entertainment Law Trailblazers, which honors those working at the forefront of the legal issues facing video games, college football, entertainment stars and sports betting.
Bromley was recognized for his work codifying a music industry exemption to California’s AB5, a law aimed at addressing exploitation in the gig economy and with contractors. He led negotiations between music industry stakeholders and government officials to pass AB2257, which gave the music industry an exemption to AB5’s ABC employment test.
“I and many of the others in the music industry felt that [AB5] was too broad and would ultimately discourage independent artists from creating music in the state, threatening one of the largest and most profitable industries in California,” Bromley said. “In order to protect creators and the booming content-creation economy in the state, we worked hard to find a solution.”
