Financing and Production agreements are the foundation for a successful film or television pilot. ChaseLawyers cinematography lawyers represent producers in obtaining the necessary TV, film and radio rights at the outset of the project. Securing these rights after the fact can be expensive and messy — although we can do that too.

Barry Oliver Chase is the former top PBS national network programming executive, with Honors degrees from Harvard and Yale and years of experience as an entertainment attorney. He has negotiated dozens of contracts for movie and television producers and stars. Gregory Bloom, Esq., has negotiated film-financing deals, with a focus on films involving the sports world. And Michael Epstein has experience in producing music videos and other short-form audiovisual productions.

Making It Your Project

Without the right contracts, your production company does not have true ownership of your own film project or TV show. ChaseLawyerssm handles negotiations for “chain-of-title” agreements with camera operators, sound recordists, actors, musicians, post-production houses, all work-for-hire settings and all television and film law matters.

Based in New York City and Miami, Florida, we represent filmmakers and television producers throughout the East Coast, as well as clients in Los Angeles, Europe and internationally. ChaseLawyerssm is well-connected in the Latino film, TV and radio industry in New York, Florida, Mexico and South America.
