Lawyer Rankings

United States > Intellectual property > Copyright

Praised by clients for its ‘unmatched expertise in copyright litigation‘, Loeb & Loeb LLP is a key name in the market for representing content creators in the music and entertainment space. New York-based practice head Barry Slotnick, is a key name for high-profile litigation, having most recently represented hip hop duo Ryan Lewis and Macklemore in an infringement claim brought by a New Orleans-based jazz musician who claimed that the client’s hit single ‘Thriftshop’ illegally sampled one of his compositions. Other standout highlights included David Grossman in LA and Jonathan Zavin in New York defending Netflix against copyright infringement allegations made by a photographer concerning the client’s TV series Stranger Things. Also recommended in Los Angeles is Melanie Howard, who focuses on copyright protection and licensing, as well as acquisitions. Clients have also noted that the legal service they have ‘come to expect at the top extends behind the scenes and on the front lines‘. In particular, clients have singled out associate Sarah Schacter on the more junior end of the team.
