MUSIC’S HOTTEST FIRMS: LOEB & LOEB

“This is truly an extra-ordinary moment in the history of the music industry,” notes John Frankenheimer, Chair of Loeb & Loeb’s Music Industry practice. “Music is ubiquitous in our culture, art and social interaction, and the current recognition of the value of music-based intellectual property finally reflects that impact. We believe we are uniquely positioned to serve our clients and the industry as a whole in this moment.”

Loeb’s Music practice has consistently been recognized as the premier music-industry practice, once again earning the title of Law Firm of the Year in the Entertainment Law – Music category in the 2021 edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers’ Best Law Firms rankings. This is the fifth year the firm has earned the title since the ranking’s inception in 2012.

In addition to the 18 transactional attorneys at the core of Loeb’s Music practice, a full complement of lawyers from across the firm, including from the Corporate, Litigation, Intellectual Property, Brand Protection, Tax, Advertising & Media, Technology and Trusts & Estates groups regularly collaborate to service client needs.

“We are fortunate to have a diverse and experienced group of partners at the core of this practice, including our Vice Chair, Debbie White, and Ken Kraus, Channing Johnson, Scott Zolke, Barry Slotnick and Rebel Steiner,” notes Frankenheimer. “And with the range of legal, business and practical knowledge and experience from the rest of Loeb behind us, we truly excel at keeping pace with our clients’ growth and ambitions, whether they are emerging talent, new companies or established clients with sophisticated expansion plans.”

Of course, the focus of 2020 was very different for Loeb’s music industry clients —and for the firm’s lawyers—as the industry faced massive disruptions as a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Loeb’s long-standing experience and relationships, as well as its cultural emphasis on innovation and resilience, were key to the firm’s ability to lead clients through the crisis.

“After almost 18 months of addressing reorganizational and restructuring issues, we are excited about the return of live entertainment, whether it is for our many active touring artists, our festival representations (Superfly Events, Country Thunder and more) or the broad spectrum of experiential platforms—including sports—created or curated by our clients,” says Frankenheimer.
