Biography

American labor attorney, the long-standing president of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, and chief negotiator for the major studios who squared off against Hollywood's writers during a 100-day strike in 2008. He was a fixture in Hollywood labor circles, having overseen some 400 labor contracts with writers, actors, film crews, musicians and scores of other professionals. He served as AMPTP's president for 27 years and was the chief negotiator for 311 major labor pacts, including six in 2008. He retired in February 2009, marking the end of an era. For most of his tenure, Counter presided over a period of relative labor calm, except for two major strikes that rocked Hollywood, in 1988 and 2008, both by the Writers Guild of America. Counter died on 6 November 2009 at the age of 69.
