Summary

I have a wide and varied practice in the commercial litigation, entertainment and technology fields. In the area of commercial litigation, I have broad experience involving creditor's rights, real estate litigation, commodities fraud cases, insurance coverage disputes (on behalf of policy holders), employment litigation (particularly with noncompete and non-solicitation agreements), and a host of other business torts and contractual disputes.

I also maintain a nationwide intellectual property and entertainment litigation practice, having handled cases in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Nashville, in addition to those in cities throughout Texas. I have extensive experience prosecuting and defending copyright and trademark infringement cases, right of publicity claims, defamation cases, and royalty claims, and have acquired from infringing third parties dozens of infringing domain names on behalf of celebrities and other trademark owners.

In the entertainment field, my clients include numerous Grammy® and ASCAP Award-winning recording artists, songwriters, and producers; major and independent record labels; music publishers; management companies; advertising agencies, and more.

Among the many services I provide on the transactional side are advising and counseling clients in developing and protecting intellectual property assets and structuring business deals; negotiating and drafting of music industry agreements and licenses; preparation of endorsement agreements for music and sports personalities; software, technology and digital media agreements and licenses; web design and development agreements; website user terms and conditions, privacy policies, and mobile application software agreements; advising clients in connection with sweepstakes rules and regulations; preparing contest and sweepstakes rules; and more
