Expertise DescriptionI have more than 15 years experience in the Entertainment Industry (film, TV, music, literary, new media, and entertainment financing matters) as an entertainment and intellectual property attorney. I have extensive experience drafting and negotiating contracts, licenses, and deal memos. I am also experienced with the development, production, distribution, and finance of film, TV, video, and music. I have additional experience as a litigator in the field of intellectual property.
Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes: Breach of film, television, and music contracts; Copyright and trademark infringement; First amendment issues; Measure of damage analysis; Startup and small business litigation (breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, turnover orders, dissolution, corporate and partnership disputes, etc).
Having been directly involved in film distribution since 2003, both as entertainment counsel and as a film distributor, I know from personal experience what conduct by sales agents satisfies the commercially reasonable standard in connection with the sale of films.
