Current business and media environments are brimming with innovation and industry disrupters. Navigating this space requires a lawyer who is fearless and creative as well. If you're an artist or otherwise in business for yourself, it's important to PROPERLY protect your work because in America there is no protection for raw ideas.  So how can you protect your investment? By getting the right legal agreements and registrations in place as soon as possible.

Lumenite Law is focused on advising and educating clients in matters involving intellectual property, business, entertainment, commercial hemp,  plus many crossover issues and industries.
