When people ask me if I’m an “entertainment lawyer,” I’m never sure how to answer, because in reality, there’s no such thing. There isn’t a particular body of entertainment law, and there aren’t specific courts or judges designated to hear and try entertainment-related cases. There’s just the law. Much like the entertainment industry, my practice revolves around the law of contracts. I negotiate and draft them; I review them; and when all else fails, I litigate them. Don’t get me wrong, I love to go to court, but I see litigation as a means to an end, not an end in or of itself. The better the contract is written usually means the less likely it is to end up in court.
