I am a practicing Entertainment Law and Intellectual Property attorney focusing on copyrights, trademarks and entertainment issues. We represent independently produced motion pictures, web sites with significant copyright and potential infringement issues, trademark registrations and related issues. I am negotiating significant and complex business transactions for my creative and business clients.
My experience and understanding of the creative arts allows me to develop business structures that provide strong growth and financing possibilities as well as an assertive approach to contract preparation and negotiating.
I am very active and interested in small and growing fashion related firms and designers. We provide aggressive representation to those in the fashion industry from designers, to models, to manufacturers, to couture sewers, to textile designers, and so on. It is an area of great interest to me.
As a firm, we are very entrepreneurial and especially enjoy representing small and early stage technology and entertainment companies. Coming from an entrepreneurial background, we understand the issues of starting a business that is rich in intellectual property and short in tangible assets and start up capital.
We represent indie film makers, musicians, record labels, writers, play writes, artists, dancers, producers, distributors, publishers, gallery owners, museums, modeling agencies, apparel designers, fashion industry participants on all levels, and so on.
Having had substantial experience at representing entrepreneurs with their corporate capital structuring combined with asset protection, future capital needs, and exit strategies, we provide strong and effective presentation for our creative and business clients.
