Arts & Entertainment Lawyer
Are you a creative, running or planning a business? A board member or officer for an arts-related nonprofit? Or, part of a growing organization?
Do you spend time worrying about whether your income stream and assets are fully protected, rather than focusing on what you do best? Do you have questions about what your contract actually means, or who owns the copyright in your works?
It may be time to hire an attorney, and it's not as expensive as you might think.
I help businesses, nonprofits and creatives working in visual arts, film, photography, design, music, theater, dance, writing, architecture, event planning, and more to:
+ set up their businesses and add partners/shareholders
+ draft and negotiate contracts
+ protect their intellectual property (copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets) through registration, proper contract language, and infringement suits
+ collect overdue amounts from clients
+ manage employment and wage issues
+ oversee internal investigations
+ meet board and officer fiduciary duties
+ take cases to trial and appeal
If you think it is time for some legal support, give me a call for a free consultation.
I work and play in the Boulder arts community and am passionate about creating a safety net for creative industry businesses. I was named the Volunteer Lawyer for the Arts by the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts in 2018. Learn more about me here:
I also serve on local arts boards and leadership roles for Burning Man, Apogaea, Art in Community, Fringe Festival, and the Denver Regional Fund.
