Authors and Literary Publishing

We represent authors, journalists, collaborators, publishers and publishing executives in high level contract negotiations. Our clients include both world-renowned authors whose works of fiction and non-fiction regularly appear at the top level of domestic and international best seller lists, and first-time writers. 

Our attorneys have decades of experience in negotiating sophisticated publishing rights agreements as well as contracts relating to the exploitation of literary works, in film, television and live theater. They keep abreast of cutting edge publishing issues, such as those dealing with digital publishing and copyright, and they write extensively and lecture often at educational and industry forums on a variety of publishing topics.

As a regular part of our practice, we also perform clearance reviews with regard to copyright, privacy and defamation law for both individual authors and publishers and other media companies.
