- Unfair competition

- Business torts

In addition to representing clients in disputes, I'm also highly adept at structuring, negotiating and drafting various deals related to:

- Models, talent, spokespersons, and designers

- Independent film production

- Copyright and trademark licenses and transfers of ownership
