I don't know what I would do without Lisa! She was a beacon of light in the very complex world of entertainment law. I reached out to her because I had a contractual hiccup with a production company. I contacted her late on a Friday afternoon. She promptly responded, asked for documentation regarding my situation and told me she would get back to me the following day, which happened to be a Saturday. I thought she would take the weekend to look over my case and call me back on Monday, but she didn't! She called back on a Saturday, was extremely thorough with her questions, and very patient with me in answering all of mine. I felt like I was her most important client! What I liked most about Lisa is that she is visionary and strategic and looks at the big picture. Many times I became reactionary to the responses we were getting back from the production companies legal team and Lisa had the wherewithal to keep me focused on our primary objectives. She helped me navigate through social media, copyright and trademark applications, and is very well versed in IP and entertainment law. I appreciated her professionalism and her advise to keep things amicable between both parties, but more importantly, that when the opposing legal counsel became difficult and belligerent, Lisa swiftly put them on their heels. Needless to say, there have been no other issues with said production company. I used Lisa another time for direction and advice with another legal contract. Again, she was quick to reply and efficient in getting things in order. Lisa is a definitely an asset to any team and I highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed!

Lisa was very helpful in providing guidance on music rights/licenses in the new media space. I found her advice to be clear, concise, and from a legal perspective, helpful to me in making business decisions. She has extensive knowledge, having worked with many clients in the space over several years, and can provide specific guidance based on her experience. As this is a new space that is ever-evolving, Lisa stays apprised of new developments and is constantly researching to provide the best advice for her clients. I found her to be very knowledgeable, clear, and straightforward in her counsel.

I'm a new filmmaker and came to Lisa with a distribution Contract and a lot of questions. She answered every one of my questions immediately and succinctly and did not waste either of our time. Beyond legal terms she inquired about my personal relationship with the company in question and coached me on how to approach them while still saving the relationship. Basically giving practical real world advice understanding where both sides are coming from in addition to explaining the legal framework. For me this is invaluable, it showed she cared about what happened to me as a filmmaker moving forward, aside from the contract itself. She kindly worked within my budget and when we finished before the hour was up she offered to reserve the remaining 20 minutes in the future if I have more questions. I don't know any other lawyers that would offer that! I feel a lot safer moving forward and would definitely recommend working with Lisa.

We were greatly impressed by Lisa's insightful strategy, her meticulously written analysis of our contract with a major N.Y. publisher, her clear interpretation of the situation, and her highly effective telephone follow-up calls to them, which quickly resulted in their modifying their position. Lisa is a sharp, no-nonsense, powerful communicator with a special ability to unravel and clarify even the most complicated situations. We not only enthusiastically recommend her, but plan to have her handle our copyright and other matters. In fact we have already engaged her to negotiate a distribution agreement for us.

I asked Lisa to draft up a contract for a recording project that was time sensitive. In a very short amount of time, not only did she deliver, but she went above, beyond and then some. It was an experience that greatly exceeded my expectations! Lisa is quick, thorough and professional….not to mention our conversations were very informative. I will definitely work with her again in the future.

I'm an animation writer. Lisa put together a deal for my partner and I to develop a new series based on an existing franchise. She was thorough, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with, and made sure we had all our bases covered in terms of payment, delivery, IP rights, etc. Highly recommend, especially if you're working in animation or new media.
