Attorney Profile

Brett Manchel advises creatives, innovators, entrepreneurs, and artists, representing clients ranging from early startup-ups to well-established corporations and brands. In addition to counseling these clients in how to best set up their business and protect their intellectual property and other interests, he is a passionate advocate for clients in courts around the country, as well. To Brett, the law is personal, even when the person he represents is a business.  

Brett helps individual and corporate clients secure and enforce trademarks and copyrights, negotiate licenses, resolve business disputes, and manage risk. Growing up playing the drums and DJing, he understands the creative process and seeks to minimize the frustration that legal issues can have on it. To this end, Brett and the other attorneys at Jayaram Law work as a team to anticipate our clients’ legal needs while using technology to work efficiently and effectively without compromising our advocacy strength.

Brett, along with the team at Jayaram Law, serves clients in a variety of industries, including film, television, and music, as well as food and beverage, technology, software, and real estate, among others.

Prior to joining Jayaram Law, Brett gained litigation experience, spending four years as a trial attorney representing individuals and families in state and federal courts against insurance companies and other large corporate interests.

Brett is active within the Chicago Bar Association (Vice-Chair of the Law Practice Management and Technology Section) and Lawyers for the Creative Arts (Associate Board member). A Michigan native, Brett earned his BA from the University of Michigan, and his JD, cum laude, from Michigan State University College of Law. After graduation from law school, the tall buildings, music scene, and great restaurants lured him to Chicago.
