What is Entertainment Law?
Entertainment law includes the representation of the needs of small businesses and professionals in the entertainment industry, including the drafting and negotiating of contracts, formation of LLCs and other business entities, consulting on business issues, advising clients of their legal rights, and helping companies organize and define themselves.
What is my approach and experience with Entertainment Law?
I take a very personal and hands on approach to my entertainment representation. I provide counsel to talent, writers, directors, producers, managers, production and distribution companies in the film and television media, and music sectors from drafting and negotiating agreements for entertainers, executives in the entertainment industry as well as film and television distribution, production and licensing agreements.
My courtroom and litigation experience started early in my legal career when I clerked for the United States Attorney’s Office, District of Colorado, and interned for the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. I have clerked for the law firm of White & Steele, P.C., practiced with Hull & Zimmerman P.C., and became a sole practitioner after my admission to the Colorado Bar in May 1996. In January 2000, I joined Miller & Steiert. Today, I practice entertainment law, representing producers, directors, and talent in contract, commercial, corporate, business formation and entertainment transactions. My practice also includes criminal law, protecting individuals’ Constitutional rights and also handling all avenues of commercial litigation, corporate business and First Amendment law.
To this day, I believe that the Law is humankind’s feeble attempt to impose order on society. Unlike mathematics, the Law is subject to precedent, interpretation and argument. I continue to practice law diligently, apply my knowledge and seek the just solution.
