Entertainment & Business Law Since 1991
Steven T. Lowe is a preeminent entertainment and copyright attorney with over thirty years of experience. He and the firm are recognized for handling high profile cases and obtaining successful outcomes for their clients. The firm represents established and emerging artists, producers, recording artists, writers, talent agencies and managers in a wide variety of legal matters in the music, television, and film industries.
The firm provides counsel and advocacy for companies and entrepreneurs, including business formation, intellectual property protection, partnership agreements, and litigation in state and federal courts. Additionally, the attorneys are well-versed in alternative dispute resolution (e.g., mediation and arbitration) and often resolve client matters without the necessity of filing a lawsuit.
The firm practices to protect creative works and trademarks in the apparel and entertainment industries. Mr. Lowe has authored multiple articles about entertainment/copyright law, has spoken extensively at legal education presentations, and co-founded and chairs the California Society of Entertainment Lawyers. Although the firm does not do patent law, the need for protecting your creative works, proprietary information, and brand is always of prime importance as intellectual property is often more valuable than tangible property.
Lowe & Associates’s Managing Partner, Steven T. Lowe, co-founded the 501( c )(3) not-for-profit in 2013 with Larry Zerner, Esq., in order to advocate for the rights of creative professionals, who generally must face off as David’s against the Goliath’s of Hollywood.
