Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, is one of the most respected and storied law firms for the media, entertainment and advertising industries. Manatt’s roots run deep in the centers of media, entertainment, advertising and technology — in Los Angeles, New York, and Silicon Valley — and Peter’s background as a former M&E lawyer makes him a perfect fit for his new role. Peter will continue to work with Sorenson as a board member but is officially in his new role starting today as a VC, business connector, negotiator and deal-maker.

As Peter says on his blog announcing his new role, “Attention all you digital media entrepreneurs out there, PITCH ME!”, so if you are looking to raise money, you might want to give Peter a call.
