Entertainment Law

Our firm specializes in protecting artists and productions from development to post production and distribution. At every stage, we seek to reduce or eliminate potential liability while securing the best possible terms for our client. Providing clear and comprehensive agreements is the best way to avoid uncertainty and protect business relationships. Recognizing the importance of keeping the deal in tact and business relationships fruitful, we make sure that every deal point is fully negotiated and understood by the parties.

In the event of any dispute, we stand ready to protect your intellectual property from becoming clouded or jeopardized. We are experienced in both litigation and mediation/arbitration should you need to enforce your contract’s provisions or defend your performance of it.
