Entertainment Law

Whether you are a Grammy® award winning recording artist/producer or hope to be one someday, or an established entertainment company or a start-up independent record label, we are equipped to represent you.

We work in partnership with our clients to offer honest, balanced and practical advice, and provide meaningful, sophisticated and hands-on assistance for our entertainment clients' business projects. We can assist you in achieving your business dreams from start-up to cornering the global marketplace. Our entertainment attorneys understand both the law and the business of entertainment thereby enabling our firm to build a reputation as an industry leader by providing top-quality service to leading multinational entertainment and media companies, the independent producers and artists who drive the creative process, and the investors who help turn concepts into reality.

We know entertainment law because we have a personal familiarity with how the industry, its artists, executives and investors operate. When dealing with talented artists, we understand that their true passion is for creating art and not tending to business details. We often need to balance a client’s immediate desire to share his or her art with the world with the long-term benefits that such talent creates. Our lawyers take the time to understand the career goals and objectives of our talented clients and use our negotiating and legal skills to ensure that their efforts are properly compensated and protected.

Our litigation group, in conjunction with our entertainment practice group, has a proven track record representing clients in important and high-profile entertainment and media cases. Our experience in entertainment and media cases crosses a wide range of matters in film, music, publishing and television, as well as artist management and agency issues.
