In Depth

Loeb & Loeb, named the 2017 “Law Firm of the Year” in Entertainment Law – Music by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers, has long been recognized as a leader in a transformative industry that continues to evolve as a result of the convergence of technology and content. Our clients range from some of the world's largest music companies and most successful talent (recording, performing, writing and producing) to major financial institutions and investors, and leading technology companies. We offer our clients sophisticated yet practical service and a specialized music industry focus that is unparalleled in depth and scope.

In today's technology-driven marketplace, we have been at the forefront of structuring and negotiating a significant number of the most complicated licensing agreements as well as the earliest agreements for ringtones, digital downloading, digital content, aggregations, peer-to-peer distribution, all forms of API licensing and webcasting. 

The depth of our practice extends to finance and lending, areas in which our attorneys assist music industry clients in shaping capital structures and raising debt and equity capital. We handle a large number of entertainment and media mergers and acquisitions, including intellectual property due diligence, industry-specific valuations, and other matters related to the merger, acquisition, or sale of entertainment assets or companies.

In addition, Loeb & Loeb is unique from most other law firms because of its ability to bridge the depth and breadth of our music industry knowledge with our advertising and promotion experience, which we bring to our extensive representation of major advertisers, advertising agencies and music companies and/or artists in first-of-their-kind, high-profile endorsement and sponsorship agreements.

We also have extensive experience in the formation and development of production companies, record labels and publishing and licensing companies. We also represent motion picture and television producers in the acquisition and production of music for film, television, video programs and theatrical productions. Additionally, our music industry attorneys work hand in glove with members of our firm's Interactive Entertainment Practice with respect to a wide array of video game and other interactive media projects.

Our experience includes negotiating, evaluating and documenting the following:

  • Domestic and international record distribution agreements
  • Recording agreements
  • Songwriting and publishing agreements
  • Merchandising and touring agreements
  • Commercial appearances, endorsements and sponsorships
  • Intra-group agreements for recording artists and business structures
  • Film and television music supervisor, music composer and soundtrack album agreements
  • Music licensing agreements
  • Agency and management representation agreements
  • Record producer agreements
  • Music and sampling clearances
  • Advertising, promotions and branding agreements
  • New media and technology agreements

We handle a wide range of music industry transactions, including valuation, acquisitions and sales of recording and publishing catalogs, as well as the administration and licensing of such catalogs. Over the past few years, Loeb & Loeb has handled the sales of music catalogs in deals aggregating well over $6 billion and has been involved in acquisitions totaling a similar number.

Because of our longevity and entrenchment in the industry, we have experience representing every side of a deal. We bring a three-dimensional understanding to each client matter. We have also earned credibility among industry leaders, which allows us to engage in decision-level dialogue and to resolve matters efficiently and effectively.

Our group understands that there is more to the industry than just recording deals. We also combine our deep bench of talent from our intellectual property, litigation, corporate, tax, finance, private equity and mergers and acquisitions teams to provide a wide range of services for our clients.
