LOEB EXPANDS MUSIC ROW PRESENCE
10/1/19

 

Loeb & Loeb LLP announced 10/1 that prominent entertainment, media and sports lawyer Derek Crownover has joined the firm’s Nashville office as a partner. He joins the firm from Dickinson Wright, where he was chair of the Entertainment Law Practice Group. Joining with him are five key team members, including senior counsels Cam Caldwell, Robert Kouchoukos and Noah McPike, and associates Nate Drake and Colleen Kelley. These additions expand the firm’s music and entertainment practice, and further diversify its Nashville presence. 

“Derek is a pillar of the Nashville music community and his presence is felt nationally throughout the music industry,” said John Frankenheimer, partner and chair of Loeb & Loeb’s Music Industry Practice. “I’ve known Derek for many years, and he and his team are very well known and respected by everyone in our group. Derek’s business philosophy, industry-standing and collaborative approach mirrors ours.”

The team has served as counsel for publishing companies, producers, independent record labels, media and entertainment entrepreneurs, and executives and singer/songwriters. They handle deal negotiations, strategic investments/business strategy, copyright matters, licensing, recording agreements, catalogue sales and asset purchase agreements. 

“Loeb & Loeb is one of the premier firms in the music, entertainment and sports sectors, and its broad, international reach, substantial New York and Los Angeles presence, and strong local brand provides the perfect platform for my practice and for my clients,” said Crownover. “I’m thrilled to join this dynamic team.” 

“Nashville is a dynamic, growing city that is attracting a wide range of new businesses and industries,” said Kenneth R. Florin, chairman of Loeb & Loeb. “Loeb has a long history of growth and diversification that has mirrored Nashville’s trajectory. I am proud of what we have built in Nashville over the last 25 years and know that this prominent team of lawyers will help us continue this growth.”
