Practice areas


In addition to representing an all-star roster of creative talent, including Tony Award - winning composers, lyricists, book writers, directors, choreographers, orchestrators and actors, we act as production counsel to some of the world’s most successful stage producers, as well as representing the owners of important films, novels and other underlying properties which often become the bases for musicals and plays.  

We provide assistance to our producer clients from the moment they seek to acquire underlying rights, through the engagement of the dramatists who will create the play and other key artists. 

We handle negotiations with co-producers and all aspects of fundraising, including the preparation of offering papers, front money agreements and other investment documents.  We also counsel commercial producers about sponsorship agreements and cutting-edge co-productions in connection with television events and episodic television programs. 

In addition to counseling commercial producers, ranging from well-established Broadway producers to first-time independent producers of off-Broadway productions, the firm represents numerous not-for-profit theater companies around the country.
