Entertainment, Media, and IP

Caldwell Leslie & Proctor devotes a substantial portion of our complex litigation practice to helping our clients—particularly those in the entertainment industry—protect their intellectual property rights. Some of the world's leading entertainment companies, including Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., CBS Broadcasting and Paramount Pictures, among others, have come to rely on Caldwell Leslie's intellectual property and entertainment litigation and counseling expertise.

We are often called upon by our entertainment clients to assist when their most valued producers and writers are sued and need vigorous, creative representation. We also represent our entertainment industry clients in cases that require us to draw on our knowledge of both employment and entertainment law, including internal investigations of employee misconduct and the defense of wrongful termination claims brought by senior personnel. In addition to film, radio and television media, our practice also extends to cases involving cutting-edge applications including digitized programming, de-encryption technology, new media platforms, and Internet-related issues.

Our familiarity and knowledge of the entertainment industry enables us to quickly identify points of leverage in a dispute and help our clients develop appropriate strategies.
