Media & Entertainment
In addition to working with artists, the firm offers a comprehensive suite of legal services specially geared toward creative professionals and business clients in creative industries spanning the gamut of media and entertainment, and regularly represents clients in film and audio-visual production, interactive media, commercial photography, music, publishing, and talent management. We make sure our creative business clients are always set up for success, carefully accounting for the specific long and short term goals unique to each client and handling the full range of transactions and counseling services that our creative business clients require with respect to internal business operations, third parties, and compliance with obligations imposed by government. In dealmaking, we tactfully navigate the processes and personalities and secure optimal outcomes through constructive collaboration and deliberate bargaining. When it comes to representing individual artists and media and entertainment professionals on the other side of the table, we are able to approach the situation with a comprehensive understanding of the competing interests and nuances at hand to secure the best deals for our people.
We also have the tools and experience to manage discrete creative projects from A-Z, from formation of initial business entities and business structuring all the way through production and beyond, handing all contractual, compliance, intellectual property, and investment-related legal work that may arise along the way.
