Disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein has hired high-powered attorney Patty Glaser to fight his dismissal from The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Glaser will not be representing Weinstein in the growing sexual misconduct allegations against him or against media outlets that have published stories about it, however.

Glaser has a background in high-profile employment disputes, including representing Keith Olbermann against Current TV and Conan O'Brien against NBC, according to the Reporter.

"We hope to work it out," Glaser told the publication. "However, we will do whatever we have to do to properly protect his rights vis a vis the company."

The past two years of drama between Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein are likely to be part of the case should the issue make it to the courtroom, the Reporter noted.

Weinstein also has indicated he might sue The New York Times for defamation for breaking the story last week, according to his lawyer Charles Harder.
