Frank Morgan was an experienced and skilled trial and appellate lawyer when he joined us in April 2007.  By the time he got to us, Frank had litigated cases in State and Federal courts from Maryland to Mississippi (not to mention the United States Supreme Court).  Frank thought he could control the tone and content of this biography.  Sorry, Frank.  He'd like to tell you that his experience covers civil litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution in matters involving trademarks, copyrights, contracts, employment, business torts, domain name disputes and the Internet, as well as, entertainment and sports law; and that he represents entertainers (including a Grammy winner and Grammy nominees) and world class professional athletes.  We'd point out he's old school.  He wears a tie every single day.  He might loosen that collar as the day wears on, but the tie stays. 

A steady diet of litigation can wear on a guy, so for the last decade or so Frank has concentrated on transactional legal work on a host of intellectual property and entertainment law subjects, including licensing, technology transfer, software and technology development, consulting and employment, website development and hosting, confidentially and non-disclosure, website privacy and terms of use, trademarks, copyrights, and rules for sweepstakes and contests.  And he helps his clients by working with them so they can make the right choices in trademark selection, strategy, use and protection, prosecution, and copyright registration, and, when called for, litigating matters in the federal Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

Frank's entertainment and sports clients include established and aspiring artists, authors and entertainers - oodles of individuals and businesses involved in the entertainment industry from all over the United States.  Among his many clients, Frank lists major label recording artists, children's and classical music artists, publishers and producers, writers and composers, filmmakers, a New York Times best-selling author and world class professional athletes. 

His is particularly pleased with a deal he negotiated for his client's music to play over the opening titles of a film that won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and was nominated for Best Picture.  He should be proud; we certainly are.  The soundtrack, which included his client's song, won a Grammy.  In 2010, another client was nominated for a Grammy for Best Musical Album for Children.

He's a perennial Best Lawyer and Super Lawyer for entertainment, music, movies and television, as well as sports law, copyright and trademark.  And most recently, in 2012 and 2013, Frank was named by Best Lawyers as Lawyer of the Year for Entertainment Law.  Music to our ears. Frank’s reputation as an intellectual property attorney, trademark attorney, and copyright attorney is second to none.
