David helped me negotiate a documentary with the BBC. His knowledge and skill with the development and legal affairs were remarkable.
I would highly recommend David Davoli. He is prompt in responding to your legal needs, something that is sorely lacking in regards to most attorney's. David provides excellent guidance in explaining your options in important legal matters. He is someone you would want on your side, when you need the services of a lawyer
I have worked with David Davoli over the last three years and have the highest regard for his professionalism, entertainment-industry knowledge and well-reasoned legal advice. He has served on a number of panels I've organized for independent filmmakers on film financing as well as providing legal assistance regarding a startup venture. In both areas, Mr. Davoli has demonstrated a thorough command of the legal and business issues at issue.
I would highly recommend David Davoli for your legal services. David is very easy to work with and brings a wealth of knowledge. He understands the business and is able to provide guidance that takes into account our needs. David gets the job done.
Everyone disparages attorneys until they need a good one. David Davoli is one of the most honest, hard working and acknowlegeable attorneys in the entertainment business. He's smart, intuitive, infinitely knowledgeable. No matter what has come up on the four projects on which he has represented me, he was always ahead of the game and knew precisely what needed to be done. He's negotiated deals on Movies of the Week, a drama series, a co-production on a feature film with complex foreign partnerships, even book and publishing deals. He's a gentleman, a class act - you can't say enough good things about him. One of the best anywhere.
In general, David Davoli approached all of my business with the utmost integrity and always provided sound counsel. He is very thorough and his attention to detail instills a great deal of confidence in the projects he works on. His work is timely and I always found him accessible. When he didn't have the answer to a question immediately he always correctly set my expectations as to when I should receive an answer.
David Davoli successfully negotiated several entertainment (film and television) contracts where I was either talent or a producer. In each instance I felt that I received a deal that was either equal to the industry standard or as in most cases better than the standard. He has also drafted agreements for my company that were used in rights acquisition situations and in each case followed through with the rights holder to ensure proper execution of documents and transfer of all materials under the contracts.
