Practice areas


The firm's television practice includes a broad spectrum of Emmy Award-winning programming at all stages of development, financing, production, and distribution in both commercial television and the public television arenas. We are pleased to represent authors, screenwriters, producers, directors, actors and other creative talent with regard to scripted and unscripted programming -- including series television, long form documentaries and live event specials.  

The firm also represents correspondents and producers in television news, ranging from network news to public television.  In international co-production arrangements, we represent production and distribution companies from territories as diverse as the United Kingdom, Canada and Japan.

We also offer our clients decades of experience in evaluating treatments, scripts and programs for legal risk (as well as compliance with "errors and omissions" clearance procedures), including issues of privacy, publicity, defamation, trademark use, and copyright.  Our focus is not only to help our clients limit or avoid risk, but also to help them find practical ways to achieve their artistic vision.
