What We Do

What is the Klaris Difference?

You may want a lawyer to negotiate a license, a sale or acquisition of content; advise on fair use, digital distribution, or a mobile application or litigate a dispute on your behalf. You may be a publisher, a production company, hotel company, or an individual. You may need an attorney to conduct IP due diligence. You may have a particular need or be looking for an outside general counsel.

Klaris can fill any or all of these roles for you, and add highly qualified attorneys and paralegals as needed on matters that require different levels of skill.

  • We have decades of law firm, in-house counsel, and media executive experience.
