Clients and Industries
Our Emerging Media Group has structured and negotiated a number of the defining agreements in the convergence of technology and content. We put together the first ringtone download agreements in the country and have helped clients with similar matters involving digital downloading, digital content aggregations, P2P distribution and Webcasting. Our clients include advertisers and marketers, developers, distributors and content owners. They also include investors involved in the emerging media aspects of interactive gaming, music, information and entertainment as well as the talent, promotion, branding and intellectual property components that contribute to the success of each venture.
We regularly provide in-depth counseling regarding the legal and regulatory framework for emerging media. We track both federal and state developments in relevant laws, enforcement actions and litigations, and we advise our clients on how these developments might affect their programs and marketing plans. The attorneys in our Emerging Media Group frequently publish and speak on these issues, and are widely considered to be industry experts.
Clients need to take advantage of the business development and expansion opportunities that result from converging technologies and industries, and we are uniquely positioned to help them do so. Our clients know that the access and connections as well as the practical, business-focused counsel we provide are invaluable. We open new doors, identify opportunities and make the most of their emerging media ventures.
Our ability to add value to each client's emerging media matter is rooted in our legacy as one of the oldest and most respected legal counsels to the media and entertainment industry. But our value doesn't stop with our legacy. We build upon it with the strength of our full-service practice areas, our business focus and our commitment to client service.
