We assist our music industry clients in all legal aspects of development of their businesses, including contract negotiation and drafting and the protection, licensing, and sale of intellectual property and related rights and products. Over the years, we have provided services for many recording artists, including platinum recording stars, songwriters, independent producers, record labels and publishing companies, and managers. We are familiar with the implications of new and emerging technology in the music industry and can help make sure our clients’ rights and interests are protected in the digital modalities and new distribution opportunities. Our involvement in resolution of matters involving Napster, LimeWire, The Eagles, Guns N’ Roses, OutKast, and major record companies gives us an informed perspective.
