We represent entire entertainment companies as well as individual producers and talent in a multitude of matters, offering our services in regard to transactions, licensing agreements, labor negotiations, and litigation matters, among others.
We are often called upon to advise our entertainment industry clients on complex intellectual property law matters, and to represent them in negotiations with third parties concerning such issues as trademark infringement, licensing, music clearances, copyright infringement, and unfair competition. We also enforce intellectual property rights of clients in state and federal court proceedings, and we defend clients in such proceedings when they have been charged with infringing upon the intellectual property rights of others.
In another vein, our attorneys often manage venture capital funds with a focus in entertainment and handle other financing methods for emerging social media, tech, and music companies catering to the entertainment business. The entertainment industry is particularly fast-moving and specialized, requiring attorneys to have a nuanced, comprehensive understanding of its innerworkings and the laws that govern it.
