I have been searching for an attorney that specializes in adult entertainment biz. Is there any up here?

I am starting my own adult production company here in Las Vegas. I have major backing for it, but there is so much questions that I have from legal filming in Vegas, to insurance, to obscenity laws, and etc. I have been searching around the web, but I had no luck finding any and I found this site and so that's why I'm posting.

There are many lawyers around the country who practice in adult entertainment law, several here on avvo.com. You might want to focus your search on First Amendment Lawyers, since that's where adult entertainment lies constitutionally. The First Amendment Lawyers Association is a great resource to track down lawyers in your state, or others, who practice adult entertainment law. Also, you can check out the Free Speech Coalition which has references to attorneys, as well as XBiz or AVN the two trade resource publications for adult entertainment.

I'm glad to see you making inquiry on this venture out of the gate. Several people I've consulted with have already made a ton of mistakes before they ever get to my advice. The adult entertainment maze is complicated and treacherous. A misstep could land you in a heap of trouble with the local police, or FBI. Get good advice from the start.

I have a partner who handles these.

Yes, there are *many* licenses, permits, hoops, and the like to deal with, as well as many pitfalls.

I'd actually stop what you are doing until you have the lawyer on retainer and he has reviewed where you are and what needs to be done to continue.

You need an attorney that can handle any of the business aspects (dealing with the administrative laws, licensing, contracts, etc) of your business. In addition, you need a very good constitutional attorney that understands all of the first amendment issues. I have a recommendation, if you like.
