Brian has years of experience providing legal services to the arts & entertainment industry, including film makers, musicians, graphic artists, photographers, game developers, personalities, authors and other artists and creatives.

Entertainment law practice is the intersection of business law and intellectual property, two areas that I have been deeply involved in for 20 years. My experience as a practical business lawyer allows me to be able to offer affordable comprehensive and effective legal services to artists and creatives who often have complex needs but a desire to keep it simple.

Our Entertainment Law Services are designed with the understanding that most artists are budget constrained.  We strive to provide cost-effective legal guidance tailored to the specific needs of each client and seek to teach and provide foundational knowledge and advice to our clients.

Entertainment Law Services can often be conducted as a single flat fee or can be part of a plan conducted in phases according to the needs of the client, and can include:
