The Law Office of Lois R. Fishman counsels clients who are active at the intersection of creativity and technology regarding rights, best practices, negotiation strategies and developments in U.S. and international law that may affect their projects and properties. Our focus is on transactions and helping clients move forward with their business objectives. We negotiate contracts of all kinds, including options, development agreements, non disclosure agreements, content licensing agreements, distribution agreements, e-commerce agreements, publishing agreements, marketing agreements and trademark licensing agreements. We are also well placed to advise on IP due diligence at all stages of a transaction and to provide input on “soft IP” issues arising in general business transactions, especially those faced by start-up companies, including company formation, identification of assets, securing registrations, choice of company name and trademark selection and registration. For the non-profit community, we provide services in organizational formation, securing tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service, and compliance with California Secretary of State requirements for charitable organizations and undertakings. We also advise on policy developments affecting our clients’ businesses in the content and wine industries and in the non-profit sector. With deep relationships in the film and TV communities in particular, we are well positioned to connect clients with potential partners and advisors.
