I need to find an entertainment lawyer who has experience dealing with both the WGA (MBA) and WGC (IPA). Thanks for your recommendations.

you may have more luck if you gave an indication why.

And even if you don't have more luck, I will be more interested if your thread.

It's the early stages of a deal that, like any deal, still might not come together so I hesitate to say too much. Basically I am a member of both Guilds and the project itself would straddle the border so to speak (Canadian and American entities involved) so it seems like finding a lawyer familiar with both worlds would be a smart move. Not sure if this makes my thread any more interesting but there you have it.

I expect you will get a few recommendations.

Would you straddle the border (literally)? May not be at all relevant, but the WGA jurisdiction post has been bumped on the Artfulwriter blog, second one down. Worth a look. I think the same applies to WGC.

I also rambled about this subject in this thread, second post:
