Personal Injury and Estate Planning Attorneys

Alisha Buckman

Attorney

I’ve spent my personal and professional life involved in the creative arts, as both an artist and a lawyer. That’s why I deeply understand the need to protect my clients’ original literary works, films, music, artwork, and performances. I believe that intellectual property law is where creativity meets protection.

Today artists have more ways to reach their audiences than ever before. There are also more pitfalls for a creative entrepreneur to navigate. As an intellectual property lawyer I help artists maintain control of their art in the following ways:

  • Register your copyright with the US Copyright office and/or file your trademark application with the US Trademark and Patent Office (USPTO).
  • Litigate copyright and trademark violation issues.
  • Advise clients on their performance and management deals.
  • Negotiate and review artist contracts with an attention to digital rights.
  • Negotiate artist publication, distribution, or other licensing agreements.
  • Draft agreements that clearly establish an artist’s rights.
  • Manage a creative artist’s business to ultimately produce or expand income streams.
  • Entity Formation
  • General Business Advice
  • Special Event Permitting
  • Business Manager

Your art is my business, and it’s my job to help you protect what you’ve created.

On a personal level, you could say that music inspired my legal career and also saved my life. When I was a child, I had leukemia and spent over a year in the hospital. Music therapy sessions are what gave me strength and brought me joy. It led me to study classical guitar as an undergraduate college student and also inspired me to become an Intellectual Property Attorney for artists.
