Entertainment Transactions

Since its founding in the early 1980s, Gipson Hoffman & Pancione has been active in representing clients in entertainment, entertainment finance, intellectual property, and media matters.  We represent a range of entertainment industry clients, from established veterans to those who may be new to the business and who need more of a guiding hand.  While our entertainment practice focuses primarily on the motion picture, television, and multimedia industries, we offer a full range of services to clients in the entertainment industry.  Among our clients are distributors, producers, financiers, actors, writers, and directors from all corners of the world.  We are here to assist our clients with every phase of their projects, from initial strategizing and structuring, through negotiating and documenting the various transactions that each project entails.  After a project is completed, we are here to assist our clients with any legal concerns which may arise, such as licensing issues, participation audits, infringements of rights, and dispute resolution.  We pride ourselves on being results oriented and keeping a strong focus on our clients’ business needs, with a goal toward offering innovative and effective solutions to the problems our clients face.  If you choose to use GH&P for your entertainment matters, you can be assured that your satisfaction will be our primary focus.  Attorneys practicing entertainment law include Fred Gaines, Reg Gipson, and Ray Gross.
