Areas of Practice
The world of music is ever growing and evolving, and we’re not just talking about sound trends. With the consistent introduction of varying revenue streams and distribution channels, the opportunity for profit grows, but so does the complexity. We take pride in clearly explaining and navigating the often foggy landscape of entertainment law and its relationship to music industry professionals of all types. We help our clients draft and negotiate contracts relating to recording, publishing, licensing and distribution, sponsorship and merchandising.
Ideas, tangible or not, are the most important things to protect in today’s competitive creative market. With so many channels and constantly replenishing feeds to watch out for, tracing the ownership and originality of a design, brand name, or invention needs the laser-focused eye of a trained attorney. We’ll handle the search, application, and filing process of trademarks, copyrights, and patents. And if your idea has been infringed upon, our litigation team will negotiate the best possible licensing and settlement agreements.
We recognise that many dogs are treated like children, and that there can be very strong bonds between dogs and owners. For your dog's safety and emotional security, we recommend a half hour visit and play for all dogs in our care, however shorter or longer visits are available to suit your needs.
A typical daily care visit will include:
Lots of love and attention
Feeding your dog
Washing up dishes and providing clean water
A short walk
Brushing your dog
Home and yard security check
Demystifying art law is in itself a creative practice. It requires finesse, strategic structuring, and, in many ways, empathy. At the end of the day, art and its worth is profoundly personal. In such matters, mediation or arbitration almost always yields the most fulfilling results. However, should the occasion arise, our lawyers are more than prepared to move into litigation. From artists, agents, dealers, galleries, museums, and auction houses, our clients have always walked away from their disputes or deals knowing that their core interests were preserved.
A regular walk for your dog eases anxiety and stress while you’re at work or too busy. Eliminating stress also eliminates problems such as digging, chewing, ripping the washing off the line, barking and weight gain. A happy, fit dog is one who gets regular stimulation and exercise plus company which contributes to his overall health and well being. Regular walks are available Monday – Friday.
OTHER SERVICES WE PROVIDE
The internet, software, and technology are so pervasive that we can’t remember having ever lived without them. They make our lives simpler, but behind the curtain are fluctuating challenges in protection and monetization; challenges that our firm stays two steps ahead of. We’ve helped engineers, inventors, gaming startups, and entrepreneurs develop, license, sell, and maintain ownership over their creations. We’ve also negotiated purchasing and partnership agreements for larger investment companies looking for their unicorn.
