Entertainment is a serious business. Above and beyond the months of rehearsal or years of preproduction that guarantee the success of a great play or film, there are complex legal and business structures that need to be in place for any project to succeed. From performer contracts to publishing agreements, from personal representation to merchandising contracts, the business of entertainment demands sound and sophisticated legal counsel.
Paul, Weiss's Entertainment Department is synonymous with New York entertainment law. Our transactional work in the media & entertainment industry is rooted in the representation of such American cultural icons as Cole Porter and Arthur Miller. As the years have passed, we’ve helped shape many of the legal agreements and business arrangements still used in the industry today. Few firms can match the scope and variety of our media & entertainment practice, which adds interest, excitement and unique challenges to the other traditional practice areas within the firm. We are proud to be able to work closely with some of the best producers, artists, composers, designers, writers and performers working in theater, film, television, music and publishing today.
