Brooke is a transactional lawyer practicing at the intersection of entertainment law with a focus on music and the arts, and corporate law. Her clients appreciate her decisiveness in negotiation, meticulous attention to detail, and thoughtfulness in drafting.
Brooke regularly drafts and reviews agreements on behalf of talent in connection with the commercial exploitation and protection of their intellectual property rights (trademark, copyright, and publicity rights) as well as in licensing agreements, talent agreements, and endorsement agreements.
She also excels in corporate matters including corporate formation and maintenance, drafting, review and negotiation of third party/vendor agreements, corporate intellectual property matters, and drafting internal agreements and website terms and conditions.
Brooke also manages the firm’s extensive trademark docket and has successfully argued for client trademark protection despite refusals based on likelihood of confusion and descriptiveness findings.
In addition to entertainment and corporate matters, Brooke has experience in employment law matters, specifically in wage and hour claims and on behalf of plaintiffs suffering from race and sex-based discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace.
In keeping with her love for the arts, Brooke served as an editor for the Fourth Edition of Steve Gordon’s book, The Future of the Music Business, and was commended for her 2014 article, Securing Copyrights for the “Oldies” in the Digital Age of Music. She has worked as a concert promoter for Gotham Rocks, a New York City-based concert promotion company supporting local and regional rock and metal bands and continues to attend shows to support local artists.
