Shulman Rogers’ Entertainment Group supports clients including musicians, actors, writers, entertainers, directors, producers and industry-related vendor companies. We understand the broad range of issues they face and provide counsel for matters related to contract negotiation and disputes, intellectual property, financing and borrowing, production and rights acquisitions, administrative and regulatory issues and stadium and arena development.
We have supported many Entertainment industry clients throughout the coronavirus pandemic, with employment issues, applications and appeals for relief funding through programs like the PPP and SVOG, as well as with related compliance issues and day-to-day operations.
Attorneys across our wide range of practice groups work together to provide clients with the benefit of “one-stop shopping” for their legal services.
Our Business and Financial Services Group helps individuals and businesses to maximize opportunities while minimizing disputes. Our Entertainment industry clients depend on us to negotiate and draft agreements on their behalf and provide strategic business advice to support their growth and achieve their goals. The attorneys of Shulman Rogers’ Business and Financial Services Practice are dedicated to providing clients with coordinated legal counsel across a wide array of legal practices.
Attorneys in our Intellectual Property Group understand the importance of maintaining a competitive edge in today’s technology-driven marketplace. Working to protect the interests of our clients to help them increase public recognition and distinguish their identities, products, and services from those of their competitors, our Intellectual Property Group safeguards these valuable proprietary rights and assets from unfair competition. We provide valuable counsel to help our Entertainment industry clients commercialize and license proprietary rights that may include patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade dress, images, brands, services and domain names.
When disputes arise, our attorneys work across practice groups and in collaboration with the Commercial Litigation Group to represent our clients’ interests in courts and other tribunals.
At Shulman Rogers, we pride ourselves not only on our skilled representation before judges and juries, but also on our tireless efforts to help clients avoid litigation altogether or to resolve contested matters at the earliest possible juncture. Resolving disputes efficiently requires a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and commercial objectives, as well as experience structuring transactions outside of the litigation context. Bringing together this understanding and wealth of experience, combined with an unyielding devotion to expeditiously “shrinking and killing” client problems, our Commercial Litigation Group has an unparalleled track record of successful outcomes.
