Comprehensive Legal Services For Creative Entrepreneurs And Business Leaders

We provide wide-ranging services to diverse clients, with strong, consistent emphasis on protection of intellectual property and other assets. Often, this effort begins with establishing the optimal structure for your startup or growing business. We will determine whether a partnership, LLC, corporation or other business structure suits your specific goals and best positions you for growth.

It is equally critical to ensure that every contract you enter is clear, enforceable and in your best interests. If you are operating a business without having considered personal or commercial liability should you face a lawsuit, you are at serious risk, and attorney Adam J Schwartz will know what to do about it. He works effectively with creative professionals and their business partners in many fields, including:

  • Independent film producers and other media producers, including those creating educational and industrial media;
  • Authors, screenwriters and illustrators;
  • Record producers and musicians;
  • Photographers;
  • Caterers and other culinary entrepreneurs;
  • Jewelry designers and other artisans;
  • Promotional services professionals.
