Overview

Scott Wilcox maintains a diverse entertainment and media practice, with experience advising clients on the licensing, acquisition, disposition, financing and exploitation of entertainment properties, including for live stage productions, film, television and new media. His clients include producers, general managers, studios, streaming services, investors, playwrights, bookwriters, composers, lyricists, screenwriters, directors, designers, podcasters, music publishers, musical artists, authors, performers and rights holders. 

Scott’s live stage practice leverages significant relationships and experience gained while a producer and general manager earlier in his career. In particular, he advises theatrical producers and general managers on a range of issues, including the development and financing of new theatrical works; the day-to-day production, management and marketing of Broadway, off-Broadway, touring, regional, West End and other overseas live stage productions; and the licensing of live stage rights in global markets. 

In addition, Scott advises U.S. nonprofit theaters on a diverse array of production and governance matters. For example, he works with leaders of nonprofit theatres to address a variety of production issues arising from live and digital performances and to manage risk and conflicts of interest.

Outside of his theater practice, Scott works closely with independent and documentary film, television and new media producers on development, production and financing matters.

Scott also advises clients, including in the entertainment and technology sectors, on compliance with U.S. and international data privacy and data security requirements.
