Entertainment & Sports Litigation

Big Firm Experience . . . Small Firm Service®  The Avanzado Law Firm provides clients with a viable alternative to “big law” representation.  We have the experience and skill which enables us to provide sophisticated representation on complex disputes which you would expect from larger firms but with the personal service and economic flexibility of a small firm.  Our experience includes litigating aggressively to force an early resolution of a dispute, dispositive pretrial motions and jury trials.  We can bring that wealth of experience to bear on any dispute to maximize the chances for a favorable result.

Our entertainment and sports litigation practice is varied and extensive. We have represented major motion picture studios, television broadcast networks and independent production companies, as well as actors, producers, directors, managers, agents and other creative talent. We also have represented athletes in major sports, sports agents as well as Major League Baseball teams. We have specific experience litigating claims over motion picture and television contractual issues, profit participations claims and disputes between production partners. We also have experience regarding salary arbitrations and other disputes between an athlete and a team over the terms of the athlete's contract. 

Our entertainment and sports litigation practice dovetails with our Intellectual Property Litigation Practice, where we have extensive experience analyzing and litigating copyrights, trademarks, idea submission claims and other intellectual property rights.  

Melvin N.A. Avanzado and The Avanzado Law Firm also publish the Entertainment Litigation Blog where we discuss interesting issues and cases relating to the entertainment industry.
