Scholarly Lectures and Writings:

  • Writ of attachment is a pre-judgment provisional remedy that in some circumstances could ensure availability of sufficient assets to satisfy judgment obtained against defendant. There are specific requirements for plaintiff or cross defendants to be able to take advantage of this writ. In this article, we explore to some extent such requirements and pros and cons of Writ of Attachment., Author, Senior Partner at Law Advocate Group, LLP, JD Supra, Civil Litigation, 2015
  • Breach of contract is a rather nebulous term with multi-layered tentacles. In fact, what is a breach? When did the breach occur? Who breached the contract? What are the damages for the breach? These are only some of the myriad of questions posed when litigating or entertaining to litigate a breach of contract action. This article preliminarily explores such questions and attempts to shed light on such seemingly simple yet esoteric subject matter., Author, Breach of Contract in CA, JD Supra, Business Litigation, 2013
  • Upon formation of a corporation, directors are named in the Articles of Incorporation or are appointed by the incorporator. Thereafter, directors are elected annually. Directors could be removed, generally, if outstanding shareholders approve the removal. Nonetheless, despite the latter concise general rules, election and removal of corporate directors are often fraught with complexities. In this Article, we explore and peruse to some extent some of the intricacies associated with electing and removing California corporate directors., Author, How To Elect and Remove Corporate Directors in CA, JD Supra, Business/Corporate Law, 2013
  • Copyright infringement is referred to as violation of any of copyright owner's exclusive rights without permission which falls within the definition of infringer under the Copyright Act 17 USC Section 501. In this article, we explore in some depth what constitutes copyright infringement, including its elements and disparate types of copyright infringement as recognized by statutes and courts., Author, What Is Copyright Infringement?, JD Supra, Entertainment, 2013
  • Plaintiffs are often confronted with the dilemma of prolonged litigation vis-a-vis losing their business to trademark infringement, competition, etc. Preliminary relief in some instances, along with other litigation tactics, might help such plaintiffs. Preliminary relief is a litigation tactic often deployed after receiving a temporary restraining order on an ex-parte basis by plaintiff. The success or failure of a preliminary equitable relief could help or drastically harm the litigation. In this article, we explore, in some depth, the statutory authority and criteria for seeking preliminary equitable relief., Author, What Is Preliminary Relief in CA?, JD Supra, Civil Litigation, 2013
  • In California, generally, there are four types of invasion of privacy causes of action: 1. Public Disclosure of Private Facts; 2. Intrusion into Private Matters; 3. Misappropriation of Person's Name or Likeness; and 4. Portraying a Person in a False Light. In this Article, we explore elements of such causes of action and provide some examples for clarification and exposition., Author, Invasion of Privacy in CA, JD Supra, Entertainment, 2013
  • Parlaying film characters and corresponding film elements into commodities could proffer participants another financial conduit. Yet, not every motion picture is a proper conduit and not every corresponding merchandise a prudent investment. In this article, we explore the salient legal intricacies involved in negotiating and effectuating a merchandising agreement for motion pictures., Author, Merchandising Agreement for Motion Pictures,, Entertainment Law, 2012
  • Despite the fact most film studios and major production companies have their own distribution company affiliates in one form or another, independent production companies due to lack of adequate wherewithal have to rely on outside distribution entities. One of the most salient agreements independent production companies have to initially negotiate with such "outside" entities, most probably, is a "short form" distribution agreement. This article explores some of the most salient provisions of such agreements, to some extent, including but not limited to rights, obligations of the participants, division of receipts and expenses., Author, Fundamentals of Motion Picture Distribution Agreements, JD Supra, Entertainment/Film, 2012
  • Retail leases present their own dilemmas and challenges to landlords and tenants. Retail leases entail rather rarefied provisions which could constitute a trap for the unwary. In this article, we explore SOME of the issues involved in negotiating and consummating a retail lease in a free-standing building (not a shopping center). Such issues revolve around the following: term of the lease, minimum payment, percentage payment, continuous operation of the business, utilities and taxes, and repair and maintenance., Author, Fundamentals of Retail Leases, JD Supra, Real Estate Commercial Leasing, 2012
  • Limited Liability Company offers the best of two worlds: LIMITED liability aspect of corporations and PASS-THROUGH income-tax aspects of partnerships. Generally, a Limited Liability Company is formed with 1 or more members to carry on a business while none of the owners have personal liability for the obligations of the business.This article explores in some preliminary detail the formation, taxation, advantages and disadvantages of Limited Liability Company, among other subjects., Author, Fundamentals of Limited Liability Company, JD Supra, Business/Corporate, 2012
  • Like any other business transaction, sale of a business encompasses myriad of considerations. Such considerations often involve risk and its allocations to the parties involved. Parties often have to negotiate and agree upon the price, the allocation of sale price to various assets included in the sale price, and tax ramifications of such asset allocation, among others. Hence, it is incumbent upon seller and purchaser of a business to carefully and prudently evaluate such business transaction to eschew or mitigate potential and actual risks and pitfalls, to the extent possible. This article seeks to provide a panoramic perspective on such salient topic by exploring some of the most salient risks without a detailed analysis of corresponding risks., Author, Fundamentals of Contract for Sale of Business, JD Supra, Business/Contract Law, 2012
  • Commercial leasing encompasses a rather disparate array of commercial properties ranging from shopping centers to multi-tenant buildings to free-standing buildings . In addition, the salience of lease in such context cannot be overemphasized as disparate scenarios warrant new tactics and approaches. In a series of articles, we explore some of the most common legal issues associated with commercial leasing of shopping centers. In this particular article, we lay out some of the concerns specific to landlord and tenants in the context of negotiating a commercial lease for a shopping center. In future related series, we will explore some of the specific provisions and delve rather more deeply into such provisions., Author, What Does a Commercial Lease Encompass?, JD Supra, Real Estate Commercial Leasing, 2012
  • Despite the fact most shopping centers use a standardized uniform lease for most tenants, numerous aspects of such uniform leases should be analyzed and negotiated, to the extent possible, depending upon the financial strength of the parties and prevailing financial conditions. Parties could negotiate as to whether the rent is fixed or it is based on a percentage of gross sales or both, as to whether tenant pays for common areas maintenance costs and how much the tenant is to pay, as to whether tenant is to pay for alterations or improvements and how much, as to whether tenant can sublet or assign part or all of leasehold interests in the premises. Let us, in some detail, analyze SOME of such shopping center lease provisions., Author, What Are Some Basics of Shopping Center Leases?, JD Supra, Commercial Real Estate Leasing, 2011

Consequently, it is incumbent upon music participants including but not limited to publishers, singers and songwriters to ascertain the fundamentals of music publishing income to some extent to monetize their hard earned commodity. In this article, we explore some of the salient types of music publishing income namely mechanical royalties, performance income, and synchronization income , to some extent., Author, What Are Some Basics of Music Publishing Income?, JD Supra, Entertainment/Music Law, 2011
