Film & TV
Show business is a business, and it's your business. Our law firm concentrates its practice in film and tv law serving clients in New York City and throughout the world. Whether you are an actor, screenwriter, producer, celebrity, reality show performer, or comedian, you need to protect the long-lasting value of your work.
Our background in the entertainment industry and extensive experience in both intellectual property and business law gives us a special perspective that other attorneys lack. From television production companies and reality show celebrity talents to independent film productions and up-and-coming screenwriters, we routinely represent all players in both the film and television industries to protect and defend their intellectual property and business interests.
We draft and negotiate agreements for production, acquisition, writing, distribution, licensing, sponsorship, endorsement, marketing, and branding, and other agreements as needed. We pursue litigation to defend against copyright and trademark infringers and violators of publicity and privacy rights. We provide guidance on corporate needs, too, like shareholder and employment agreements related to entertainment matters, intellectual property rights, and unfair competition.
Ultimately, no matter your role, we care about achieving the optimal outcome for your practical business goals in film or television.
