Arts and Entertainment
People don’t generally consider a song or documentary film in the same way as a pair of shoes or a bicycle sold in a store. At Schindel Segal Mendoza (SSM), we understand that the creations of artists require protection, like any other business asset/product. We know that the passion, power and business of art (aka, entertainment) demands tangible and effective legal counsel and representation. We help artists create business entities, draft and negotiate contracts, navigate licensing arrangements, protect copyright interests, and obtain and protect trademark registrations. In addition, we assist A&E clients in recognizing and maximizing the complex system of revenue stemming from copyright interests. And lastly, we approach this unique aspect of law from the rare perspective of having also been an artist in need of these very services.
