Oscar Wilde once said “No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist!”
Antheil Maslow & MacMinn’s clients doing business in the arts, entertainment and media sectors have unique legal challenges and we think it is our job to see things clearly. In addition to superior skill in contract negotiations that protect our clients’ financial rights, our attorneys have the experience required to identify potential threats to intellectual property rights and strategic relationships that are essential to these frequently multi-party ventures.
AMM attorneys have represented clients creating original work in traditional mediums and new media, social networking, interactive entertainment, video games, software and electronic content sharing and publishing. Adding the necessary layer of insight to routine business, tax and estate planning representation, AMM attorneys representing creators and entertainers (or the businesses that employ or engage them) regularly handle co-production, development and distribution agreements, fiscal sponsorship, merchandising and licensing documentation and term specific grant of rights or purchase arrangements. We have also advised on numerous gallary agreements, artist management agreements and motion picture production financing, and have served multiple times as counsel in connection with intellectual property litigation and rights enforcement.
