I focus my practice on entertainment law, corporate law, intellectual property, and all types of business transactions. I have additional experience with real estate transactions and employment contracts.
As an advisor to small and mid-sized businesses, I counsel on both the challenges and growth opportunities that owners experience throughout numerous transitional phases, including acquisition or sale of a company. I’ve also assisted startup companies with entity formation and structure, commercial leasing, intellectual property protection, and general operational matters.
Much of my practice is dedicated to a wide range of entertainers, musicians, YouTube influencers, and professional athletes. My experience with trademark, copyright, and licensing law is essential for overcoming the most common legal issues that musical artists and other creatives face.
I previously served as in-house counsel and vice president to a mid-sized baseball agency specializing in athletic representation, where I negotiated player contract salaries, endorsements contracts, and prepared salary arbitration cases.
I am licensed to practice law in Arizona, Tennessee, and Oregon.
