Experienced Advocacy You Can Trust

Miami Record Label & Producer AttorneyAt the Miami-based international law firm of Manos Schenk, we understand that creative ideas can jump start new business deals.  Unfortunately, verbal agreements or plans written on a napkin can quickly escalate into legal disputes.  When a dispute erupts, we will offer strong advocacy tempered with sound judgment in pursuit of a favorable resolution without putting valuable business relationships at risk.  We have the skills, resources, and legal knowledge to effectively handle a wide range of disputes, including:

  •     Artist contract disputes
  •     Copyright infringement disputes
  •     Disputes over song royalties
  •     Disputes over percentages and compensation

If a case goes to trial, we devote substantial resources to preparing every dispute for a favorable verdict.  We consult expert witnesses and forensic accountants as needed to demonstrate industry standards and the scope of damages involved.  We love juries and juries love us.  Trial is "show time" for us.  Our focus on demonstrating fault and damages, and our comfort level and fondness for the courtroom often forces our opponents to settle to avoid paying more at trial.
