A James Beard award-winning chef seeking to reestablish his prominence after a period of reduced activity. Holm & O’Hara LLP assisted him with several elements in his “come back,” including arranging for reversion of rights to several of his out-of-print books from the publisher, negotiating a new book deal with a different publisher and laying the groundwork for a film deal with a documentary production company. Additionally, we spearheaded extensive negotiations for him to become executive chef at a landmark New York City restaurant. With assistance from Holm & O’Hara LLP, the chef was able to reassert control over his own image, elevate his profile on the world stage and negotiate several potentially lucrative business opportunities.
