Music will always be a crucial part of everyone's life. Whether you are at a party, a concert, driving in your car, or just shopping in the mall, there is music everywhere. Our law firm concentrates its practice in preparing music industry contracts for clients in New York City, throughout the United States and the world. We have the distinct honor of representing the creators: the people who write, perform, manage, publish, produce, and distribute this essential element of our lives. We know how important music is and how vital our client's musical creations and businesses are to them. We are music fans, and we want our clients to garner every accolade and benefit possible from the incredible work they are creating. We have extensive experience in all areas of the entertainment industry, and since music is integrated in all areas of entertainment, we can uniquely assist our music clients in protecting their work.
We draft and negotiate agreements for all areas of the music industry including management, recording, writing, producing, distribution, and synchronization and master use licensing. We understand that music, while a deeply personal creation, is also a business and its contracts need to be finessed in a way that will meet our clients’ professional and personal needs.
Sometimes, despite our clients’ best efforts, disputes arise. Copyright infringement, breach of contract, and other music-related disagreements require a unique knowledge of this very special area of law so that if a matter can be negotiated to settlement or if necessary, litigated, it will be handled in the most competent manner possible. With Furgang & Adwar you can be confident that we have the experience and knowledge to navigate you through all phases of litigation. Whether you want to assert your rights against a party or you need to defend yourself against a claim, Furgang & Adwar can provide you with first class legal representation.
We don't want to live in a world without music. And we want to make sure yours is heard the way you want it to be heard.
