Intellectual Property | Media & Entertainment
For the last 15 years, our entertainment lawyers have practiced extensively in the fields of television law, film law, music law, advertising & marketing, books & publishing law, online media, social media, and cyber law.
As the definition of media evolves and expands, keeping up with the also-evolving rules and regulations surrounding it can be a daunting task. But for us, it’s just another day at the office.
We stay up to date through continued education, and by staying active in all aspects of media and entertainment law, including transactional and trial work. Our client list includes production companies, distributors, producers, musicians, artists, actors, directors, writers, and other film and television crews, as well as a variety of web-based entities.
Our workload covers a wide range of services, too. We negotiate and prepare a variety of production agreements (including co-production and distribution contracts), as well as agreements involving the purchase, sale, and licensing of film, television, music, and other media. We regularly advise our clients on intellectual property issues governing their business interests, and have experience with the laws governing copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and financing transactions.
If litigation is appropriate for your particular case, we are full-service firm able to protect your interests across the spectrum. We will utilize our extensive knowledge of First Amendment law to both prosecute and defend defamation actions for libel and slander.
