HITS Daily Double

Music biz legal eagle Heath Kudler has opened the doors of new firm Kudler Law, based in NYC.

He started as a legal consultant at Mercury Nashville, eventually serving as SVP Business & Legal Affairs for L.A. Reid at Island Def Jam Music Group before heading to Epic in 2012 to fill the role of SVP and Head of Business & Legal Affairs. There, he rose to EVP before setting sail for WMG (in 2016), where he worked as EVP Global Repertoire Acquisition.

An excellent biz navigator, we're surprised he still answers Lenny Beer's calls. No one's perfect, though.
