Gerry Bryant wears many hats. Described by many as a renaissance man, Gerry graduated cum laude from both Phillips Andover Academy and Harvard, and received his J.D. and M.B.A., simultaneously, from UCLA. His law clients – artists and creative people of all disciplines — all know him to be a well-respected arts & entertainment attorney. His musician colleagues and music fans know him to be an accomplished, classically trained pianist and composer who has performed with jazz legends and Broadway musical stars early in his career and who currently performs and records regularly with his jazz group, PocketWatch. His music, whether uniquely arranged standard songs or original compositions influenced by classical composers Chopin, Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninoff, and great American composers Ellington and Gershwin, is always romantic, emotional, elegant and sophisticated.
Many others know Gerry for his volunteer work as a very active board member of several nonprofit arts organizations, including California Lawyers for the Arts (a former Board Co-Chair) and Chalk Repertory Theatre (the current Board Co-Chair), and as a regular volunteer piano player entertaining patients at UCLA Medical Center. Whatever hat Gerry wears, he proudly wears it being of service to others.
As the Director of Legal Affairs for Harvardwood, Gerry oversees all legal and business affairs of the organization and provides legal counsel and guidance to the Board of Directors and management staff for all corporate activities.
