Susan Chana Lask succesfully litigates high profile entertainment cases in State and Federal courts, including handling transactions between individuals and organizations in film, theatre, television, radio and art. Susan has first hand experience in the entertainment law as a producer and executive producer in many films, commercials and videos in the past 25 years, including her talent management agency in Beverly Hills.
She represents high profile clients and cases in the media and on the Internet. Because she is a media saavy attorney, many clients hire Susan for damage control to avoid media or strategize handling and responding to the media. Oftentimes, Susan has avoided media completely to protect her clients’ privacy. She has successfully removed defamatory publications in the media and the Internet for her clients.
As an entertainment litigator, she represents artists, actors, talent managers, production companies and interfaces with unions and related organizations in and out of court. She negotiates talent and production contracts and contract disputes, privacy and publicity rights, defamation and libel cases, union issues, estate planning, and intellectual property issues (copyright, trademark). Susan maintains absolute loyalty to her clients and works for her clients’ best interests.
