Find a Santa Monica Entertainment Lawyer

The entertainment industry is responsible for a sizable portion of the world’s wealth, and as such, legal disputes are extremely common. With so much money changing hands on a daily basis, there exists an endless sea of litigation from every corner of the entertainment sphere. From contract disputes to publicity matters, copyright infringement to libel, our Santa Monica entertainment law firm handles all types of entertainment-related cases. Consider just a few of the few major case types in which we specialize:

 

Trademarks and Licensing. This includes the entire process associated with securing a trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and is essential for protecting your intellectual property. Trademark law is infinitely complex, but our attorneys will follow all of the optimal procedures to ensure that your proposed trademark isn’t already in use, and will help you to establish your trademark using all of the proper legal channels.

 

Copyright Law. As with trademarks, copyright law secures your intellectual property. But whereas trademarks are concerned with words, names, and symbols, copyrights are concerned with original works of authorship. We can connect you with a Santa Monica entertainment attorney who specializes in copyright law, and who is equipped to protect your intellectual property to the fullest, whether you’re simply trying to establish a copyright, protect an existing copyright from possible infringement, or defend yourself from copyright infringement accusations.

 

Pre-Production/Production/Post-Production. The making of a film or television project is extremely complex, not simply from a production standpoint, but also from a legal standpoint. Have the appropriate rights been acquired? What about all of the contracts? From financing to adaptation rights, rating adherence to employment obligations, there are endless legal complications that can sink a production if not properly managed from start to finish. Our Santa Monica entertainment law firm can help you to weather this storm to perfection and ensure that your entire production runs smoothly. We can also defend you in the event that a conflict does arise.

 

Actor Agreements. Actor agreements and contracts typically include clear-cut condition precedents, compensation requirements, issues concurrent with performance, and other stipulations that can facilitate a dispute, either on behalf the actor or on behalf of a production team working with the actor. When such a dispute arises, or in order to prevent these disputes from occurring, our attorneys can step in and provide expertise and — when necessary — legal representation in court. We also specialize in composer agreements and arranger producer agreements.

 

Music Licensing. Music is the emotional lifeblood of any film or television project, but it’s not as simple as tracking an audio recording over a piece of film. Music publishers are responsible for making key decisions in the publication of songs, and there are myriad contractual obligations associated with any music licensing agreement. Contact a Santa Monica entertainment lawyer at Law Advocate Group to ensure that your music licensing requirements are met to the fullest letter of the law, and that any legal disputes are resolved in your favor.

 

TV Agreements. TV agreements are fraught with contractual complications, pertaining to relationships with sponsors and networks, the requirements of live broadcasting, and the handling of ownership rights. Without expert legal counsel on your side, you may leave yourself vulnerable to crippling litigation. The Santa Monica entertainment lawyers at Law Advocate Group can help you to avoid these types of pitfalls.
