Victor is a founding member of Bushell Sovak Ozer & Gulmi LLP.
Victor and the firm have represented A list celebrities, musicians, authors and the industry for decades. Clients represented include (in no particular order): ICM, UTA, WME|IMG, MGM, BMI, FujiTV, Broadway Video, Vigliano Associates, VNY Model Management, Anne Hathaway, Harvey Keitel, David Byrne, Dan Lufkin, Candace Bushnell, Raven-Symone, The Moody Blues, and Onyx.
Wendy is an Associate at Cohen, Weiss and Simon LLP, one of the nation's leading firms devoted exclusively to representing the interests of labor and working people. With over twenty years of musical experience, Wendy has found ways to integrate her love of music and performing into her personal and professional life, staying active in the music scene while representing major entertainment unions (and other terrific clients, too) in NYC and across the country.
In her spare time, Wendy is both an advisor to - and frequent performer with - The "Leave a Lasting Mark" Concert Series, a monthly event based at the world famous Bitter End, which brings local independent musicians (including Wendy on both vocals and flute) together to raise money for charities such as Oxfam, Foundation Fighting Blindness, Covenant House and others. The themes of the shows range from eras and events like Motown, Woodstock and 80's music, to artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Tom Petty, Madonna and more. Over the past 7 years, the series has worked with over 30 charities, and has raised over $70,000 for a variety of worthy causes and organizations.
During her 7 years living in Brooklyn, Wendy has also talked her way into performing on stage with such illustrious acts as Cousin Earth (formerly Ukulelien), BELT, Primate Fiasco, Uncle Ebenezer, the WarrenScott Band, the Whistles, and the New York City Bar Association Chorus. When not at work, Wendy can most likely be found on the road with the electric ukulele jam/folk/fusion phenomenon Cousin Earth (featuring her husband, Terrence Brennan on vocals, keys and lead kazoo) at venues and festivals throughout the northeast.
All the way from the Cayman Islands, 1981 are back and ready to rock the Gramercy with their unique blend of Caribbean cool and riff-driven heat. Leaner, meaner, and louder than ever before Neil, Tim, Andrew, Rolf and Natalie have the amps turned up to 11 and the attitude set to snarl. Stopping at nothing to make sure that the Food Banks of New Jersey and New York and their kids programmes get all of your support, 1981's goal is to raise USD25,000 to feed 100,000 kids in the Tri State area. Prepare to be boarded, New York - the real pirates of the Caribbean are coming for your bounty.
Featuring legal talent from Office of the Bronx District Attorney; private practice
Rocking for amfAR
The "Endless Thread" is happy to return to Law Rocks this year to battle it out for amfAR, Foundation for AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and the advocacy of sound AIDS-related public policy. Accordingly, and to put in a manner colleagues will understand:
We are writing this short bio with respect to the aforementioned musical performance by the above mentioned musical group professionally known as "The Endless Thread" (hereinafter "applicant"). Upon hearing all the facts, and reviewing the evidence in the form of the group's musical capabilities, the applicant has no doubt that your unequivocal verdict will be in its favor and that you will grant its application to be chosen as the recipient of first place at the "Law Rocks" event.
We appreciate your consideration, and please feel free to inquire further after the musical performance to be the first to receive our newly recorded album "FM Drift."
Put another way, the "Endless Thread" is a musical think-tank of lawyers and musicians whose ability to move the soul is so great, so compelling, it has caused prosecutors and defense attorneys to cross the aisles, get up on the stage, and join together to make music. This year be sure to listen-in on the finest of legal harmonies, as the band explores some of the hottest covers and even one of its originals. Yes, you heard it right - "The Endless Thread" is not just a spur of the moment band thrown together for the purpose of battling it out on behalf of amfAR. Rather, it is a full fledged, gigging and recording band in New York City made up of lawyers and musicians, and its members simply cannot wait to support such an amazing foundation as amfAR.
Featuring legal talent from Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard; Giordano Halleran & Ciesla
Rocking for New York Civil Liberties Union
From CDAS, Scott Sholder on bass, Ben Jaffe on drums, Brittany Kaplan on keyboards, and Jon Peritz on guitar; from GH&C, Chris Marino on guitar; lead singer Michael Gruters. GS is playing to benefit the New York Civil Liberties Union Foundation – a cause we thought was particularly worthy nowadays. Looking forward to rocking the Gramercy Theatre with our selection of vintage alt-rock, punk, and grunge!

Rocking for Her Justice
Mistrial was originally formed in 2014 by five lawyers in White & Case’s NYC office. Known to rock at events large and small, Mistrial features the vocal stylings of Brian Kim, the riffs of Charles May (guitar), the rhythms of Daniel Cohen (vocals/guitar), the grooves of Raj Gandesha (bass), the beats of Joshua Weedman (drums), and the talents of Kate Swisher (keys). Mistrial is excited to bring its spin on modern and classical rock to Law Rocks, and raise some money for Her Justice!

“A band whose appeal can never be denied”
Talent from Debevoise & Plimpton
Rocking for Jazz Foundation of America
The Plimptones may be the hardest working band in rock and roll, but that’s just their billable hours. Musically, they strive to walk on the right side of the fine line between clever and stupid, whichever that may be. Their combination of raucous rhythms, sonorous strings, honking horns and multi-part harmonies pays homage to the masters of rock, yesterday and today. They also are known, on occasion, to come up one alliteration short.
Featuring talent from Day Pitney; Locke Lord
Rocking for Connecticut Veterans Legal Center

Please come and join us to help support the CVLC! Musically, ROCKE LORDS has one goal in mind: to play a face-melting set of some of the hardest rocking songs on the planet. Be prepared to rock hard with the ROCKE LORDS.
