Hollywood’s top legal sharks will try not to feed on one another this weekend when UCLA Law School presents “Superstar Dealmaking” for the 31st Entertainment Symposium March 2-3. Featured are panels and speeches on hot legal topics such as superstar deals and branding, litigation trends for the studio litigator and the talent litigator, digital rights management, new content delivery options, and my favorite, ethics (as if…) Sure, there’ll be Clint Eastwood and film critic Richard Schickel and SAG prez Alan Rosenberg. But the real draws are the well-known entertainment lawyers attending, including E. Barry Haldeman (Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Marmaromes), Tom Hansen and Tom Hoberman (Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Warren & Richman), Alan Wertheimer (Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum & Morris), Ivy Kagan Bierman, (Loeb & Loeb), Ken Suddleson and James Nguyen (Foley & Lardner), Patty Glaser (Christensen, Glaser, Fink, Jacobs, Weil & Shapiro), Marty Singer (Lavely & Singer), Robert A.
