Diamond McCarthy’s entertainment and media litigation and counseling lawyers have the industry-specific knowledge and experience to best serve entertainment companies and talent facing their most difficult disputes. We have represented top talent in the music, motion picture, and sports entertainment industries, and a range other entertainment providers large and small.
Diamond McCarthy’s lawyers understand that the objectives of entertainment litigation often involve a constellation of considerations and factors unique to the space. Our lawyers recognize the need to protect client privacy, to protect the value of our clients’ brands, to understand the bigger picture often overshadowing the dispute at issue, to pursue and achieve confidential resolution where possible, and to discern when litigation and disputes are actually business opportunities in disguise. When the situation requires fierce advocacy, the proverbial Hollywood bulldog lawyer, our lawyers relish and have a track record of consistent success in the fight.
As entertainers and entertainment companies know well, their counsel cannot best represent their interests without understanding the structure of entertainment contracts and requirements, be they licensing agreements, guild requirements, complex financing deals, royalty agreements, distribution agreements, or the myriad standard and complex contracts that go into the creation of content. Diamond McCarthy’s entertainment litigators are well-versed in this legal landscape and provide counsel to clients when they are structuring or entering into agreements to avoid disputes and litigation before they can even happen
