We are based in Washington, D.C., however, as a modern law firm, we are able to serve clients nationally through the power of the internet. We proudly serve the legal needs of online entrepreneurs by providing business, intellectual property, and legacy planning counsel to help you protect your brand and build a lasting legacy.
What We Do - Help You Protect What Matters Most
We provide virtual general counsel services to entrepreneurs and assist them in choosing an entity, drafting and filing articles of organization, drafting operating agreements, bylaws, and partnership agreements, reviewing and drafting contracts, and assisting with the purchase, sale, or winding down of their business.
We file copyright applications with the U.S. Copyright Office on behalf of songwriters, music composers, authors, and other creative artists. In addition to registering work for copyright protection, we also help our clients protect their creative work from infringement, whether they need cease and desist letters, Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) take-down notices, or help with licensing their creative work.
We counsel clients on all aspects of building a career in the entertainment industry. Our goal is to help you first identify your rights, then help you develop a strategy to not only protect but also exploit your rights. We focus on brand development, copyright/trademark protection, and negotiating contracts on behalf of clients in the music, television, and film industries.
Estate planning is an important task for everyone, but it is an especially pressing issue for business owners. We help business owners create a plan to ensure that their loved ones and their assets are protected in the event something happens to them.
Protecting your brand with trademarks is essential to your success. Many entrepreneurs and creative artists overlook this first step in protecting their brand. We can help you identify elements of your brand that are worthy of trademark protection: brand names, business names, logos, taglines, or packaging. We will start with a comprehensive search to determine if your mark is available and to let you know the likelihood of success of your application.
