With offices situated in the center of LA’s booming entertainment industry, our firm handles clients at all stages of their career and in many different areas within this industry. Our business and legal experience within the entertainment industry allows us to provide clients with strategic legal advice needed to thrive in today’s ever-evolving multimedia marketplace.
Within the entertainment and media practice, we focus in the following areas:
We are committed to the representation of independent artists, labels, filmmakers and producers — helping these companies and individuals build a proper foundation for their continued growth and success. Our experience in both general corporate matters and intellectual property allows us to help creatives ensure they are properly situated to succeed, including assisting with forming loan-out companies and filing for trademarks and/or copyrights.
In the music realm, we work with recording artists, producers, labels and publishing companies, managers, production companies, publishers and songwriters to draft and negotiate various types of agreements, such as recording, publishing, producer, management, distribution, touring, merchandising and licensing agreements. Within the television and film industry, we work with actors, writers, directors, producers, production and distribution companies to draft and negotiate performer, writer and producer agreements as well as television and film financing and distribution agreements. Whether signing your first deal with a talent agency or preparing to sign a recording contract with a major label, we can help guide you through the process.
In addition to servicing clients in the traditional music, television and film industries, our attorneys also work with athletes, social media influences and marketers to negotiate an array of licensing, endorsement and partnership agreements. Through our collaborative relationships with marketers and advertisers, we are able to assist our clients with creating branded content in a realm where companies are always seeking new ways to gain added product exposure.
