We are a team of creative professionals who firmly believe that you must maintain ownership (or control) of your work, the value of your creativity must be recognized in negotiations and deals, and that the law shouldn’t unnecessarily restrict your creativity but should instead help you create new opportunities. We also know that your creativity can change communities and industries.
