On July 27, 2020, Alex Weingarten was recognized by Billboard as one of its 2020 Top Music Lawyers. This prestigious list spotlights attorneys throughout the music industry who have kept business on course, helped clients cope with the pandemic, and vigorously joined the call for racial justice.
In recognizing Weingarten, Billboard wrote:
Weingarten has been focused on assisting his artists with business interruption insurance claims. "Touring and live performances have come to a complete halt," he says. Last year, Weingarten represented the adult children of Tom Petty in a dispute with Petty’s widow, Dana York Petty, helping to reach an agreement over management of the late rocker’s estate "that honors his memory and is true to his legacy."
Taking Action in the Moment: As chair of the community engagement initiative for the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, Weingarten says the federation is "focused on working with our counterparts in the African American community to combat injustice and inequity."
