Located in the heart of the entertainment capital of the world, the Law Office of James Pacitti provides legal services to clients in the entertainment industry, specifically in the areas of TV and film production. Past and present clients include production companies, film producers, writers, directors, actors and other entertainment professionals. The firm provides the highest quality representation at a fraction of the cost of traditional firms by emphasizing the development of long term relationships and not short term profits from individual matters. Our clients are committed professionals who plan to have long careers in the entertainment industry. It is our goal to represent them throughout their careers, not just for one project.
The firm handles all legal and business aspects of independent film production including financing, corporate formation, performer, director and writer agreements, union and guild collective bargaining agreements, copyright issues and distribution (see Services for more details).
The initial consultation is always complimentary. At the conclusion of the initial consultation, all clients are provided a comprehensive assessment of their legal needs, the time involved to provide the proposed services and the projected costs.
