John Schulman is an alumnus of Yale College (1972) and University of California Berkeley (Boalt Hall) (JD, 1976). After law school, John worked in private practice, with a focus on commercial litigation and transactional work, primarily representing clients in the entertainment industry.
His high level practice and high profile clients led him on frequent work trips to Europe, where he learned to apply American law to European principles and culture. In 1984, John joined his client, Warner Bros, as General Counsel, where he was charged with building the Studio’s in-house legal department. John served in this role for 25 years, overseeing Warner Bros. legal and business matters and managing a staff of approximately 150 first rate lawyers. Upon retiring from Warner Bros., John began working as a private mediator, where he continues to work to broker deals – and peace – in the entertainment industry.
