The advice of attorneys who focus their skill and attention on protecting your proprietary and creative entertainment business interests can help you navigate the treacherous waters of entering into business transactions involving protectable intellectual property.
At the office of Brian J. Murphy, Attorney at Law, our Los Angeles entertaintment lawyers have over 20 years of experience working with clients worldwide. We help domestic and international businesses with the creation, distribution and maintenance of their IP assets. We also help motion picture studios and production companies, creative talent, investors, independent contractors, and Internet and new media entrepreneurs identify the full value of their work while protecting their ability to realize it, both in its original form and in emerging platforms and applications. Contact us in Los Angeles to learn how our experience and insight into both the creative and technological aspects of new or repurposed IP assets can help you succeed.
We advise clients on projects and transactions in Southern California and throughout the United States, Canada, the Pacific Rim, Europe, India and Asia. Our counsel is comprehensive, covering the protection and registration of innovative and creative ideas and IP assets, the formation and structuring of new business entities and joint ventures involving technology and intellectual property assets, the components of the financing structure, and the negotiation of the contract and license terms you'll depend on to protect your interests.
We also advise domestic and foreign clients about government support for projects, such as motion picture and film production subsidies and incentives, wherever grants, tax credits or co-production opportunities happen to be available. At each stage of our engagement, we'll help you identify risk, find solutions to legal or practical problems, and avoid the mistakes that could derail the project or your career.
