Practice/Industry Group Overview
Carroll, Burdick & McDonough's media and entertainment team advises clients on complex legal issues that are crucial for clients involved in media and entertainment-related industries, from rights protection to production and finance. We have specialized experience in representing clients in the motion picture and television industries, as well as interactive entertainment, and sports and computer games. Our attorneys are experienced in advising producers, financiers, funds and banks on large, multimillion dollar projects.
Specialized Legal Advice from IP to Financing
Our team combines the expertise of our finance lawyers with the experience of our intellectual property lawyers to optimize our clients' financing, production, distribution, and licensing contracts. We analyze and protect complex national and international rights in works and content, provide legal advice across various phases of a production, arrange debt and equity financing for new projects, as well as P&A and slate financing.
Structuring and Dispute Resolution
We also assist our media and entertainment clients with other types of transactional work, and help maximize exploitation of rights in their works. If necessary, we enforce rights by mediation, arbitration, or litigation -- coordinating proceedings across various countries and forums where advantageous to our clients.
