Scott Wilcox focuses his entertainment practice on theater and live stage matters, serving a diverse group of clients including commercial and non-profit producers, general managers, film and television studios, investors and financiers, playwrights, bookwriters, composers, lyricists, directors, marketing and public relations companies, performers, writers, estates and other rights holders.

Scott’s live stage practice leverages significant relationships and experience gained while a producer and general manager earlier in his career. As an entertainment lawyer, in addition to serving as production counsel on various theater and live stage projects at various points in the production life cycle, he advises commercial theatrical producers and general managers on a range of issues, including the development and financing of new live stage and immersive works; the day-to-day production, management and marketing of Broadway, off-Broadway, touring, regional, West End and other international live stage productions; and the licensing of live stage rights in global markets.

Scott routinely advises nonprofit theaters and other nonprofit arts organizations on a variety of development, production and governance matters. For example, he works with leaders of nonprofit theatres to acquire underlying rights, negotiate enhancement agreements with commercial theater producers, address a variety of production issues arising from live and digital performances, and manage risk issues and conflicts of interest.

Prior to joining Loeb, Scott served as head of legal and business affairs for a leading live stage production and general management company, with productions on Broadway, on the West End and touring in the U.S. and internationally. Scott actively litigated cases in various state and federal courts earlier in his legal career. Before attending law school, Scott was a general manager and a company manager for Broadway, off-Broadway and touring productions and the executive director of a nonprofit theater. He frequently speaks on legal and business issues in the theater to audiences including bar associations, law schools, and undergraduate and graduate arts programs.

Outside of his theater and nonprofit practices, Scott works closely with independent and documentary film, television and new media producers on development, production and financing matters. His clients also include screenwriters, streaming services, podcasters, music publishers, musical artists, and authors.

Collaborating with Loeb’s pro bono department, Scott coordinates the firm’s veterans pro bono program and serves on Loeb’s Pro Bono Committee in New York.
