Entertainment Law

Managing intellectual property is integral to the success of your entertainment-related business. Sam has considerable expertise in the registration and protection of trademarks. He also has extensive experience working with copyrights and music licensing.

Sam represented an online seller of original artwork who was threatened by an organization claiming that the artist had misappropriated the organization's artwork. Through Sam's representation, the "bully" backed off and the artist was able to continue to sell the original work without interference.
Sam cares about his clients and is committed to helping them pursue their dreams.

Sam represented an aspiring musician (percussionist) who received three traffic tickets which could have resulted in the loss of his driver's license. The loss of the license would have meant he could not attend a prominent music school where he was recently admitted. Sam was able to successfully achieve a resolution which enabled his client to attend music school and hence he "kept the drummer driving- and drumming."

Sam's passion is helping ordinary people solve real problems. When you need the services of an experienced and down-to-earth attorney, contact Sam Erkonen.
