Entertainment and Media: Back to Business

As entertainment and media companies face the challenge of getting back to work during the global pandemic, Venable attorneys are here to guide the way. With deep roots in Hollywood and on Capitol Hill, and a legal practice that covers all aspects of the entertainment industry, Venable is well positioned to provide focused, pragmatic counsel.

In addition to counseling above-the-line talent, Venable represents talent agencies, management companies, business management firms, entertainment executives, production companies, distributors, networks, and publishing companies. We have steered clients through the arcane and fluid CARES Act relief provisions, such as the Paycheck Protection Program and the Employee Retention Credit tax program. As clients move toward returning to full operation, we offer counsel in areas such as labor and employment, insurance, OSHA and HIPAA compliance, bankruptcy and creditors' rights, healthcare-related planning, real estate, U.S. and international tax planning, contracts, and privacy, including the CCPA.

Whether they are working on everyday business concerns or the complex legal and reputational issues unique to entertainment and media, our attorneys draw upon decades of industry experience to anticipate the new realities imposed by the virus and advance our clients' objectives so the show can go on.
