My practice represents a diverse clientele, including advertising agencies of all sizes, production companies, small business owners, start-ups, artists, photographers, designers, stylists, writers, and magazines.

In addition to providing general business counsel and transactional services, I advise clients throughout all stages of creation, development, production, and distribution of creative and advertising materials in traditional and digital media.

Services include:

  • Drafting and negotiating all types of contracts, including consulting agreements, client-agency agreements, digital and traditional production agreements, content licenses (such as photography, music and film clip licenses), talent agreements, strategic partnership agreements, technology provider agreements with platforms and social media vendors, sponsorship agreements, website and app terms of use, and property and appearance releases.
  • Advising clients regarding copyright, trademark, right of publicity, privacy, and patent risks.
  • Legal compliance, including consumer protection laws, FTC guidelines, and other media and internet industry self-regulatory guidance. 
  • Pre-publication and pre-broadcast review for advertising copy and other creative content.

I have extensive experience with social and digital media marketing campaigns, including user-generated content, crowd sourcing, mobile, and multi-platform contests and sweepstakes.
