Lowe & Associates is best known for its successful entertainment litigation practice. Entertainment litigation is, at its core, dispute resolution for parties. Although litigation typically involves resolving controversies in court, the firm customarily explores creative alternatives to dispute resolution whenever possible, including mediation and arbitration. In addition, the Firm engages in "crisis management." Lowe & Associates handles the following types of cases:
- Copyright Infringement
- Idea Theft
- Breach of Contract (Oral, Written, Implied)
- Rights of Publicity and Privacy
- Claims for Fraud, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, and other business "torts".
Lowe & Associates also drafts and negotiates contracts (and other documents) in the television, film, music and apparel industries. Our expertise in litigation places the Firm in an optimal position to advise and counsel clients in a way to avoid disputes or be in the best position in the event disputes arise. We also offer assistance to artists and authors in securing their intellectual property with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (i.e., trademarks) and United States Copyright Office (i.e., copyrights).
Lowe & Associates' business clients range from entrepreneurs to established corporations. The Firm has handled a vast array of corporate litigation matters, from resolving disputes between business partners to sparring with corporate conglomerates. Our philosophy when handling business litigation matters is to attempt to resolve the the case quickly if at all possible and if not, to be one step ahead of the opposition. We pride ourselves on an extremely high success rate and client retention.
Lowe & Associates can assist businesses in all stages of development. We have helped clients who have only just conceived their business determine the best type of entity to form, and the best trademarks. Our Los Angeles-based business law attorneys will also draft a thorough Operating Agreement for a Limited Liability Company.
Lowe & Associates handles intellectual property (“IP”) matters involving copyright, trademark, trade secrets, and idea theft. We not only secure our clients' intellectual property through filings with United States Copyright Office (for copyrights) or USPTO (for trademarks), but we continue to protect their IP interests by pursuing infringers for monetary and/or declaratory judgments.
We have settled cases against major studios, networks, and distribution companies on behalf of creators, producers and screenwriters, and have been on the cutting edge of idea theft and copyright cases, both in the courtroom and in the lecture hall.
Art and Fashion Law
Lowe & Associates has handled a wide range of cases involving both art and fashion. “Art law” involves the representation of clients in the business of art (including artists, photographers, dealers, and publishers), while “fashion law” involves the representation of clients in the apparel industry. Lowe & Associates has been a staple in both, with expertise extending to licensing, distribution.
