Hello, My name is Richard B. Jefferson and I’ve been an Entertainment lawyer for over 15 years.
I am one of the founding partners of M.E.T.A.L. Law Group, LLP, a boutique law firm located in Los Angeles, California that represents companies in the innovative segments of Media, Entertainment, Technology, Action Sports and Lifestyle Brands (hence the name).
Needless to say, I’ve done a lot of deals and seen a lot (I won’t say that I’ve seen it all because I learn something new every day). That’s why I created this site…to give production companies and content owners in the entertainment industry some insight into the business so that they can avoid critical mistakes.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me. Please feel free to comment on any of my blogs or vlogs. Feedback is always appreciated!

LA’s most user friendly, competent IP lawyer”
I live offshore, so am at a considerable disadvantage when choosing representation for my IP coverage in the US. So I was pleasantly surprised at the quick and well informed response to my initial queries.
I discovered Mr Jefferson and his firm through an insightful advisory article he’d written about the entertainment industry. He’s since managed a US Trademark registration for me seamlessly and without a single glitch. The bottom line is that for my next tranch of IP work I’ll be placing it with him and his firm – no question. Thoroughly recommended.
