The modern music and entertainment industry has experienced disruptive change from new technologies and business models. Jeffrey has experience in all traditional forms of entertainment agreements and deal structures, as well as the new non-traditional relationships being established daily.
The entertainment industry is so competitive and so demanding that the only way to have an opportunity to succeed is to have a stellar team of experienced professionals. Jeffrey has embraced this team approach and it has proved to be his strength in developing and maintaining a loyal clientele. The result has been the ability to maintain the closest possible long-term relationship with a relatively small group of clients and to deliver unparalleled service as part of a stellar team of professional advisors and deal makers.
Jeffrey’s passion for excellence, astute attention to developing and maintaining relationships, being battle tested at the highest level of the entertainment industry and his spiritual faith, make him a valuable advisor and advocate for his clients.
