MORE THAN COUNSEL -
PART OF YOUR TEAM
From the inception of every representation, Film & Ink aims to establish rapport with our clients, with an eye toward learning their goals, concerns, and overall business. The result is that we become an extension of the client, part of their team. Our clients – from leading studios to independent producers to individual talent – can attest that a team relationship tailored to their specific needs and resources leads to effective and efficient legal representation. Let us join your team.
Since its founding in 2005 by Natasha Mandich and Trisha Gum, Film & Ink has guided clients through media’s integration with technology, representing both established studios and technology companies on live action and animated projects for television, theatrical, and digital platforms. Simultaneously, we furnish general counsel services to growing companies on day-to-day legal matters such as contract review and negotiation, employment issues, and regulatory compliance. We also advise clients on marketing campaigns, both traditional and in the social media space. Additionally, we possess a core strength in data privacy issues, an area of particular importance to our consumer-facing clients that collect and use customer data.
What has allowed Film & Ink to adapt so successfully to the entertainment-technology merger are three key differentiators. First, the founders envisioned a legal collective that could deliver world-class legal services as part of the client’s team, achieving their goals through compelling advocacy, timely advice, and meticulous drafting. To realize this vision, Natasha and Trisha assembled their own team of highly skilled attorneys who hail from elite law firms and entertainment companies with deep experience in various Practice Areas. Second, Film & Ink’s culture of collaboration, ethos of mutual respect, and carefully curated team promotes a collegial atmosphere where we genuinely enjoy working with each other. Last, as a women-owned law firm, diversity is important to us. We see our diversity as a true strength not only in bolstering our client relationships, but also positively affecting outcomes when dealing with our negotiating counterparties and adversarial parties.
We encourage you to visit our Practice Areas and see if Film & Ink would be a good fit for your team.
Film & Ink’s attorneys are as passionate as the clients they serve. Bringing a unique combination of in-house studio and large law firm experience to our practice, our lawyers are able to balance the need for practical legal and business solutions to day-to-day problems against more complex projects requiring a longer term commitment. Clients have praised them for their responsiveness, pragmatism, reliability, precision, effective communication, and dedication. Of course, our lawyers could not perform at this level without a professional and well-prepared team of paralegals and assistants.
