Overview

When deals are on the line, entertainment companies, writers, producers, actors, directors, and literary rights holders need entertainment lawyers who:

  • Know studio “best practices” from having decades of combined in-house studio experience
  • Act as a “consigliere” to clients
  • Quickly grasp your immediate needs and long-term objectives
  • Maintain strong relationships with agents, managers, lawyers and other decision-makers
  • Cut through the obstacles to push along negotiations
  • Keep you “in the loop” at all times
  • Promptly return your calls and emails
  • Obtain the best deal possible for you
  • Finish necessary paperwork in a timely manner

With the advent and proliferation of streaming, mobile platforms, and AR/VR, it takes creative and savvy counsel to apply tried-and-true principles to emerging technology deals.

Some of these deals involve streaming giants such as Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, Facebook, Disney+, Apple TV+, and Quibi.
