Publishing in the 21st Century has evolved beyond bound books and static content. We advise authors and publishers of textbooks, trade books, professional and technical books, and online publications on the legal issues of the publishing world both today and tomorrow.
We collaborate with authors to understand and enforce their existing contracts, to adapt to new publishing conditions, and to evaluate and negotiate new publishing opportunities. Our clients range from the creators of children’s books, cookbooks, and memoirs to the authors of some of the nation’s most successful introductory college textbooks. We also work as outside counsel to publishing companies on copyright issues, contract drafting, and trademark protection. We also represent publishers in negotiations with authors or other collaborators, and advise them in disputes with third parties.
