Robert Kouchoukos has joined Dickinson Wright PLLC’s Music Row office as Of Counsel.
Kouchoukos has 14 years of legal experience in Nevada and California, where he focused on media and tech companies in connection with a broad range of entertainment issues, including trademark, music, technology and content licensing, specifically licensing on worldwide platforms that use music, video, software and video game content. His practice on Music Row with Dickinson Wright will continue with that same clientele, but will expand to corporate music and entertainment-related company set-up, music publishing, indie record labels, indie artists, key executives or sports figures in the entertainment, sports and media spaces.
“Rob’s work product and personality are already a known high commodity, as he worked with many of our intellectual property lawyers in Las Vegas prior to his job with Sony PlayStation in Silicon Valley. We are so pleased Rob agreed to make the move here with his family. His deep knowledge of trademark, music, TV, film and tech licensing on a global level will greatly enhance our Music Row bandwidth and our International Entertainment Practice Group bench,“ said Derek Crownover, Dickinson Wright’s entertainment, sports and media practice group chair.
Prior to joining Dickinson Wright, Kouchoukos served as in-house music and video content production and licensing counsel at Sony Interactive Entertainment where he supported the SIE Worldwide Studios game development business and PlayStation Network digital TV, film, video game and live event streaming services. Prior to Sony, he was an attorney at the Las Vegas firm, Gordon and Silver. Kouchoukos’ clients include four times Grammy nominated Las Vegas hip hop and pop duo the Audibles whose recent production credits include Sam Smith, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Lupe Fiasco and Kid Rock.
Kouchoukos is a frequent writer on various topics within the legal industry including entertainment and intellectual property. He received his B.A. from Carleton College and his J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology.
