Corporate

We counsel corporate clients in their business strategies, organize corporations and partnerships, and negotiate and draft a wide variety of agreements for major public corporations and privately held businesses. Typical transactions include asset purchases, mergers and acquisitions, shareholder, joint venture and operating agreements, employment agreements, equity incentive arrangements, as well as capital-raising and financing, and we are experienced in structuring startup business entities. Our knowledge of entertainment law distinguishes us from law firms practicing in other corporate environments. For example, we understand the impact on revenue streams of advances, contingent compensation and derivative rights exploitations; how corporate assets may include ongoing relationships through artist or writer agreements; the effect on transactions of copyright interests and terminations of grants under the Copyright Act; and how intellectual property differs from other types of properties in securitization of loans.
