Whether you call us business lawyers, contract lawyers, or corporate lawyers, our jobs are the same - to focus on the legal needs of both starting and running a business. This, of course, includes everything that comes in between.
We work with entrepreneurs, startups, small businesses, and large corporations on a variety of different legal tasks. Examples of these tasks can include business formation, strategic business consulting, contract drafting, reviewing contracts, and negotiating business deals.
Entertainment law is a combination of several types of legal subjects, tailored to that of the specific field of entertainment the artist is involved with.
It is a combination of these laws with the knowledge of the inner workings of the various industries (music, film, television, theater, social media, etc.) that make an entertainment lawyer good at his or her job. Because of this, entertainment lawyers are often asked to consult on various decisions affecting their client's overall career in the entertainment industry.
Intellectual Property Law
Intellectual Property (also known as IP) results from the creations of the mind and can be categorized as a trademark, trade secret, or copyright. Examples of these types of IP creations are inventions, literary works, artistic works, designs, symbols, names, images, logos, and much more.
The job of the intellectual property lawyer is to protect these creations for their clients, implement safeguards to ensure valid protections are in place, and assist in the monetization of such IP (usually done through licensing deals).
