Music & Music Publishing
Our work in music is both talent and management oriented. We represent publishers, digital distributors, and managers as well as talent including singers, composers and musicians. Our music work takes us to Nashville and the hip-hop community in the Mid-Atlantic. We also represent various regionally known record labels and music companies and provides legal counsel on various music publishing and administration matters. We negotiate and draft music licensing agreements for a variety of music uses including soundtracks and national commercial work. We also counsel our clients on the many aspects of setting up a music business and our attorneys played a principal role in drafting a landmark state statute affecting the conduct and activities of music performing rights societies (ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC).
