The Digital Media and Technology (DMT) Group at CDAS offers a full spectrum of transactional and entertainment oriented legal services to clients in the digital media, emerging content, and technology industries.
Our clients include media companies, digital music and video services, podcasting networks and distributors, esports and gaming companies, mixed reality platforms, advertising and design agencies, and technology service providers. We also frequently work with influencers and celebrity talent seeking to protect and expand their branded identities through social media channels and strategic brand partnerships within the digital media ecosystem.
Our DMT lawyers have a deep knowledge and understanding of the digital landscape through which our clients operate and conduct business that is beyond what a traditional corporate or entertainment lawyer can provide. This enables us to offer best-in-class service for clients seeking to protect and use their intellectual property to develop and exploit cutting edge products and services for the new media age. As a result, we frequently advise clients on complex, first-of-their-kind deals, related to the development, protection, licensing, distribution, acquisition, financing, and exploitation of digital content and other intellectual property rights.
The DMT Group also frequently serves as outside general counsel to its clients, advising on a range of commercial transactions and business affairs and legal matters that arise throughout the corporate lifecycle, including company formation and entity structure, corporate governance matters, financing through the sale of equity or debt in private placement and institutional/venture financing rounds, mergers and acquisitions, strategic joint ventures, brand strategy and protection, data privacy compliance, and executive and employee compensation and equity incentive programs.
