Preserve The Gullah
Authentic Solutions.

Everyone needs a campaign.


MUSIC

The world of music is ever growing and evolving, and we’re not just talking about sound trends. With the consistent introduction of varying revenue streams and distribution channels, the opportunity for profit grows, but so does the complexity. We take pride in clearly explaining and navigating the often foggy landscape of entertainment relations and its relationship to music industry professionals of all types. We help our clients campaign, and negotiate contracts relating to recording, publishing, licensing and distribution, sponsorship and merchandising.

 

ART LITIGATION

Art Public Relations is in itself a creative practice. It requires finesse, strategic structuring, and, in many ways, empathy. At the end of the day, art and its worth is profoundly personal. In such matters, mediation or arbitration almost always yields the most fulfilling results. However, should the occasion arise, our specialist  are more than prepared to move into action. In a PR Crisis, everyone from artists, agents, dealers, galleries, museums, and auction houses, have always walked away from their disputes or deals knowing that their core interests were preserved.

 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Ideas, tangible or not, are the most important things to protect in today’s competitive creative market. With so many channels and constantly replenishing feeds to watch out for, tracing the ownership and originality of a design, brand name, or invention needs the laser-focused eye of a trained attorney. We’ll handle the search, application, and filing process of trademarks, copyrights, and patents. And if your idea has been infringed upon, our litigation team will negotiate the best possible licensing and settlement agreements.


TELEVISION, FILM, & THEATRE

The way people consume entertainment is constantly in flux, so the laws must adapt quickly. Gullah Gold LLC strives to anticipate these changes so you can focus more on creating a performance of a lifetime. Among our clients are actors, directors, unions, agencies, writers, animators, and many other industry talents. We draft and negotiate development, production, financing, and sales & distribution agreements. We tailor each campaign and contract according to a project’s scope, size, and budget.
 

 

BUSINESS STRATEGY

The startup and small business marketplace is still a new and fierce frontier that requires legal advice from attorneys who are deeply entrenched in the particulars of venture financing. We offer a competitive advantage that can help you save money and make more of it in the long run. We’ve steered corporations like USBA, CPAS Ghana and many more legal, business, operational, and financial strategies that had clear execution and built-in problem-solving contingencies. Our holistic approach is essential to any company looking to grow.

 

DEFAMATION & IMAGE RIGHTS

Maintaining the integrity of your public image is an inseparable part of your business, whether you’re a creative individual or a small company. Protecting your privacy and your public image from slander and libel is only one side of the coin; negotiating sponsorships, public appearances, and endorsements is the other. Our firm advises on both, offering litigation and dispute resolution, defamation (pre and post publication), and other image protection mechanisms—all so you can amplify and control the way you want the world to see you.


DIGITAL MEDIA & TECHNOLOGY

The internet, software, and technology are so pervasive that we can’t remember having ever lived without them. They make our lives simpler, but behind the curtain are fluctuating challenges in relations and monetization; challenges that our firm stays two steps ahead of. We’ve helped engineers, inventors, gaming startups, and entrepreneurs develop, license, sell, and maintain a presence within their relations. We’ve also negotiated purchasing and partnership agreements for larger investment companies looking for their unicorn.

 

FASHION, APPAREL & TEXTILE LAW

Fashion Public Relations is a little bit like the Wild West. There’s a lot of potential, but the rules can be convoluted and vague at best. Campaigning a brand or even a single design involves intellectual property, copyrights, trademarks, and patents. A successful campaign requires creativity and flexibility. Gullah Gold LLC represents boutique, individual designers, illustrators and graphic designers. We protect their products against copycats large and small, and guide them through manufacturing ethics and labeling concepts.

 

LIABILITY & RISK

Whether you run a theater, recording studio, or an eCommerce website, all businesses need to minimize their legal liability and risk. Our specialist will assess the structure of your operation, such as its physical or digital space, the types of products you sell, who your consumers are, what type of company you have filed under (LLC, Inc, etc.), and so on. From there, we will tailor the right risk plan, complete with permit applications, insurance policies, and more, so you can worry less about liabilities and concentrate on growing your business.
