We counsel producers and creators of feature films, television series, commercials, music videos, animation and games on obtaining tax credits and production incentives for projects. These tax and other financial incentives vary by state; many are transferrable tax credits, rebates, returnable tax credits, location fee waivers and sales tax waivers. All of these affect the bottom line performance for our client's entertainment projects.
We also counsel government entities on the creation of these incentives. Our knowledge of the industry, as well as our understanding of the goals of governments providing these incentives, gives us a unique edge in finding the right solution. Clients turn to us to manage the complexities of the process from legislation, administration, application, monetization and compliance. Attorneys in the group represent government agencies, producers, studios, distributors, video game developers, financiers and lenders.
We also have experience with the multifaceted litigation, arbitration and labor and employment issues that companies in the entertainment industry face.
