About Me

I practice intellectual property, advertising, sports, and entertainment law at Frankfurt Kurnit. I counsel entities and individuals in the advertising and entertainment industries on all aspects of their businesses, including rights clearance (such as copyright, trademark, and rights of publicity), regulatory matters, and risk assessment. I structure and negotiate creative services agreements, commercial production agreements, brand and celebrity licensing agreements, sponsorship and event promotion agreements, celebrity talent and on-camera agreements, content distribution agreements, media agreements, and content releases and licenses. I also have vast experience addressing music issues, including structuring and negotiating master use and sync licenses for commercials, video games, television productions, and films, music distribution agreements, artist/band services, appearance, and promotion agreements, and concert sponsorships.

Additionally, I work with numerous clients in the sports industry, including counseling major sports leagues on branded entertainment, intellectual property, media rights, and promotional matters, advising both sponsors and properties on the structure and negotiation of sponsorship and endorsement arrangements, counseling agency clients that activate sponsors’ marketing campaigns, and advising major sports apparel, footwear, and fitness companies on marketing campaigns and IP matters. I'm also a founder of the firm's Sports Law Group and have been quoted in Sports Business Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, and The Associated Press on sports law matters.

My practice also includes counselling entertainment, advertising, sports, media, and fashion industry clients on the clearance, selection, maintenance, and enforcement of trademarks worldwide, as well as prosecuting trademark applications before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and participating in actions before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
