DIGITAL MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT

The entertainment industries are like no others. They not only have their own unique set of concepts and practices, but those of more traditional businesses don’t always apply to entertainment. Then there is the interplay between creativity and technology that continues to transform all areas of entertainment at a blinding pace.

 

It’s not enough for entertainment lawyers to understand entertainment law and this interplay. A pragmatic understanding and approach to their business and creative components are equally, if not more, important.

 

That’s the unique value ADLI provides. Showbiz is in our bones. Our entertainment lawyers have many decades of experience in the legal, as well as the business and creative aspects of traditional and digital entertainment. We understand from the inside out how these potentially conflicting interests need to be accommodated and interact for ADLI’s entertainment clients to have their entertainment endeavors run smoothly, and most importantly be successful.

 

Our entertainment clients are based both in and outside of the U.S. They range from talent to executives, creatives to distribution, social influencers to branded entertainment, startups to Oscar® and Grammy® winners and nominees, in all areas of music, digital media, TV, motion pictures, and radio. We also protect and enforce our clients’  valuable copyrights and trademarks, so they can reap the fruits of their creativity.

 

We have successfully structured and negotiated many complex agreements, often for entertainment endeavors that have no precedent, in this rapidly and continually changing market for the creation and consumption of entertainment.
