Entertainment & Music Law

Some history : I have been involved with entertainment law issues for over 15 years. The interest started when I was asked to represent a young filmmaker embroiled in litigation over an MTV project with her former boss and "producer" (who had advanced some money for film). Through the trials and tribulations of litigation, I developed a keen awareness of the legal issues within the entertainment industry.

During my career, I have consulted and represented producers, event organizers, musicians, writers, film directors, actors, models, performers and other artists. I have not only drafted many legal documents, but have also seen how the issues play out in Court (which is the more critical stage).

I have a particular interest in music and have assisted several bands and recording artists. I was involved with production of several concerts in the LA area, and a Brazilian-American-Russian film project Sonhos de Peix, which won the Prix Regards Jeune at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival (congratulations to director/writer Kirill Mikhanovsky!). Also, I have also had the pleasure to work with the well-known Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama.

I am available to to assist you at any stage of your entertainment career, whether you are just starting out or have more serious legal issues (such as disputes or litigation).
