Bowen Schmidt’s vision is to become the country’s premier advocate for creatives by utilizing our unique knowledge and relationships to empower their artistic pursuits and steadfastly protect, expand, and safeguard their legal rights. We envision a world where the aspirations of every client are fully realized and achieved due to our unwavering dedication to their success and innovative legal solutions.
Our vision is driven by the belief that every industry creative deserves the opportunity to pursue their passion without fear of exploitation. We aspire to passionately advocate for our clients in a manner that sets new industry standards related to the protection of creatives’ rights. Ultimately, our vision is to be the go-to entertainment law firm that creatives trust implicitly, empowering our clients to focus on their artistry and granting them the freedom to achieve their dreams without fear or distraction.
We do things differently because we believe that freedom from the rigid organizational structure of a typical law firm allows us to focus on giving clients the full attention they deserve, and we have found that our clients value the personal dedication they receive as a result. We have developed close relationships with clients that last for years, as we believe no law firm can be successful without a relationship of trust with its clients. For that reason, we offer fair and transparent rates, flat fee business formation services, and do not bill for the typical ticky-tack things for which lawyers get a bad rap (postage, copies, consultations, or quick emails and phone calls). We never want you to be afraid of reaching out to us in fear of racking up a huge bill. Gone are the days of leaving a message with a receptionist and hoping for a call back. With us, you’ll always have a direct line of communication with your lawyer via phone, email, and text — whichever you prefer.
But don’t just take our word for it. Ask the countless film and television productions, record labels, and artists that have turned to Bowen Schmidt in their hour of need. Ask the hundreds of local and national businesses and entrepreneurs, big and small, that have benefited from our counsel. To us, every case is an important one.
Let us know how we can help you.
