Television Film Law

Our NYC and Miami Entertainment Law Firm advises and represents clients in all legal matters related to music, sports, television/film, visual and literary works, modeling, online matters, and intellectual property.

Financing and Production agreements are the foundation for a successful film or television pilot. ChaseLawyersSM cinema 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 TV 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. With his advanced degree in the law of copyright and trademark, Alexander Loveyko has served as a Licensing Attorney for one of the most successful animation TV projects of the past 10 years – “Masha and the Bear”.”. And Michael Epstein has experience in producing music videos and other short-form audiovisual productions.

Making It Your Own Audiovisual Project

Without the right contracts, your production company does not have true ownership of your own film project or TV show. ChaseLawyers℠ handles negotiations and prepares documents 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.

Our TV lawyers represent many producers and directors of independent films, as well as TV production companies and networks launching new shows. 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 Latin America. ChaseLawyers℠ is well-connected in the Latino film, TV and radio industry in New York, Florida, Mexico and South America.
