Our clients are committed professionals who plan to have long careers in the entertainment industry. It is our goal to represent them throughout their careers, not just for one project.
The firm handles all legal and business aspects of television and film production including financing, corporate formation, performer, director and writer agreements, union and guild collective bargaining agreements, copyright issues and distribution.
The initial consultation is always complimentary. At the conclusion of the initial consultation, all clients are provided a comprehensive assessment of their legal needs, the time involved to provide the proposed services and the projected costs.
Intellectual property (IP) consists primarily of trademarks, copyright, patents, trade dress and trade secrets. IP can be the most important asset of a company, especially an entertainment based company. Trademark, copyright and other IP infringements have become rampant in the digital age. It is vital to the viability and profitability of IP owners to protect their assets while simultaneously being aware of the IP rights of other parties to avoid potentially costly disputes.
The firm handles a variety of intellectual property issues, both in connection with representation in entertainment law matters as well as matters limited exclusively to IP representation such as trademark prosecution with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) or copyright registration with the United States Copyright Office.
