Blending-in is just so overrated.

Stand Out!

No Substitute for Creativity

Entertainment is an industry defined by creativity and innovation. Yet most law firms remain rooted in the idea that the centuries-old profession of law transcends the need to innovate. We disagree! We embrace the creative in everything from alternative fee arrangements to winning matters that everyone says cannot be won. Because our attorneys are designers, musicians, and artists themselves, nobody better understands the unique considerations of creative-based clients.

Our entertainment practice provides clients a unified, end-to-end legal solution, offering support with financing, employment, production, distribution, protection and licensing from start to finish. Our team of professionals handle a broad range of legal matters in all areas of entertainment and interactive media for actors and other performers, directors, producers, screenwriters, musicians and composers, webcasters, authors and songwriters, production companies, loan-out companies, record labels, and financiers alike.

Working hand-in-hand with our clients, we have negotiated agreements for the financing, development and production as well as distribution of a wide range of creative endeavors including motion pictures, music, advertising, and new media. Additionally TMK has advised and represented clients with respect to litigation ranging from financing to distribution and profit participation disputes.
