Book Talk with Robert Barnett

Barnett.jpegRobert Barnett of Williams & Connolly, whom we featured on the cover of Washington, DC Super Lawyers in 2007, is the lawyer that big-name authors want negotiating for them. Among his clients that maybe you have heard of: President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, James Patterson, Mary Higgins Clark. In this period in which the book industry is being dramatically reshaped thanks to the advent and booming popularity of cheaper e-books, we figured who better to check in on the plight of authors than Barnett? We got him on the phone Jan. 4 for a quick chat.
