The entertainment industry is always changing. New interactive media such as social gaming,  social networking, viral marketing, and blogging have created a new entertainment landscape with unique issues. Even traditional media, such as radio, television, sports, music, and film, have encountered new problems in a digital age.

In the entertainment industry, quality representation is sometimes all that separates success stories from flops.

With digital transactions becoming the norm in distribution of media, protecting intellectual property and retaining stellar representation is imperative. VLG attorneys represent both the companies and the talent creating and selling various forms of entertainment and media to consumers. Since deals involving media are usually high-risk, VLG offers attorneys with experience in financing, mergers and acquisitions, employment agreements, licensing agreements, business structures, and litigating “bet the company” patent, trademark, and copyright cases.

The Vernon Law Group’s entertainment law practice group works closely with our intellectual property, domestic and international business transactions and litigation practices to offer a wide range of services to entertainment providers of all types in both traditional and emerging media.
