What our clients say:

Jeff is the best, most down-to-earth attorney you’ll ever meet.

    Brand Management & Trademark Protection

    Protecting our clients’ most valuable assets has been our focus for 20 years. Market leaders count on SpyHop Law to manage global trademark portfolios and develop effective enforcement campaigns. For first-time founders, serial entrepreneurs, and growth-stage companies, we provide business-focused, strategic guidance on brand launches and product expansions, while efficiently managing portfolios to keep them competitive.

    Music & Entertainment

    Protecting the work of musicians and other artists is among the most rewarding aspects of our practice. We’ve negotiated countless entertainments contracts. Too many to list? Maybe: influencer agreements, band agreements, producer contracts, composer agreements, work-for-hire agreements, master use and sync deals, music publisher agreements, live performance agreements, podcast agreements, soundtrack deals, songwriter and recording contracts, compilation contracts, production & distribution contracts, game distribution agreements, location agreements, publishing agreements, NFT deals, and licenses for any number of purposes (such as film, TV, commercials/promo videos, political campaigns).

    IP Licensing & Commercial Contracts

    Is it time to finally create a standard contract? Facing something new and need a bespoke agreement? Need to decipher the 50 pages of legalese that just landed in your inbox? We can help with all that. We’ve seen, drafted, and negotiated thousands of agreements in the last 20 years, gaining valuable experience in a wide variety of commercial contracts including trademark licenses, co-branding initiatives, and sponsorship deals; content clearance and acquisition; licenses for IP, trademarks, copyrights, and personality rights (NIL); vendor contracts and consultant agreements.

    Enforcement & Dispute Resolution

    A shield. A sword. What might feel like a proverbial slingshot. Deploying the right strategies and tools can make all the difference, and we’ve played every role. We’re equally adept at protecting established, global brands, as we are strategically defending or enforcing the rights of startups and emerging companies. Because disputes can be messy, costly, stressful, and unavoidable, we prioritize the overall business goals so you can see the forest for the trees.
