Individual Entertainers and Production Companies

We have successfully represented clients involved in production of films, television programs and commercials in South Carolina. We also represent artists, actors, musicians, bands, production companies, marketing companies, and other individuals and organizations involved in the entertainment business.

Entertainment Law

Fighting Illegal Internet Downloads

Our entertainment law attorneys have been active in intellectual property protection and enforcement involving illegal Internet distribution of movies and music.

Success in entertainment law requires the ability to negotiate, review and draft sophisticated legal documents, as well as, the ability to protect or enforce clients' interests through litigation.

We have successfully represented music industry professionals in record deals and distribution deals. Our entertainment litigation attorneys have achieved positive resolution to a variety of disputes, including one between band members over payment of royalties. We also assisted a marketing company in obtaining the worldwide intellectual property rights associated with the production of a CD for the South Carolina state lottery.

Professional, Effective, Discreet

As in all areas of our practice, we are committed to the highest level of professional ethics, integrity and discretion.
