Manatt Entertainment Leader Jordan Bromley and Partners Chris Chatham and Sophia Yen were named to Variety’s 2022 Dealmakers Impact Report, which recognizes advisors who can generate financial growth for their clients even in economic contraction. 

Bromley’s feature highlighted his work with artists such as Diplo, the estate of Pop Smoke, Jack White, the Eagles and ODESZA at the intersection of music and branding as well as his work guiding clients through more than $2 billion in catalog sales over the past year. He was also recognized for his work on advising Francisco Partners Management in its majority stake investment in Kobalt Music.  

As one of the go-to advisors for some of Hollywood’s biggest names, Chatham was highlighted by Variety for closing deals for more than 800 episodes of syndicated television collectively and for negotiating more than a dozen related talent contract negotiations. This is his ninth consecutive year being recognized on this list.

Yen was noted as a “prolific dealmaker” working with high-impact clients, including advising Kevin Hart’s multiplatform media company HartBeat in its $100 million capital raise. She was also recognized for representing FilmRise in a nine-figure commitment to upgrade its current working capital facility. 2022 marks Sophia's fifth time being recognized on this list.
