Entertainment and intellectual property attorney Brenner McDonald has become a member of the McGlinchey Stafford law firm. She is based in the company’s Nashville office.
With more than 30 years in the entertainment industry, McDonald brings a wide range of experience in entertainment, sports, corporate, business litigation, and transactional law and will expand the firm’s intellectual property practice. McDonald’s practice will focus on publicity and endorsement rights, trademarks, copyrights, domain names, and other areas of intellectual property law.
Prior to her legal career, McDonald spent nearly two decades in artist management, operating an entertainment management company that guided the careers of award-winning artists and songwriters where she negotiated recording contracts and managed music licensing, touring, television, film, video, internet, music, and book publishing deals for her clients. Brenner holds a law degree from University of Tennessee and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky. She is admitted to practice in Tennessee.
“We are thrilled to welcome Brenner to the firm,” says Drew Patty, who leads the firm’s Intellectual Property group. “She brings a unique background to our practice and great value to our creative clients in Nashville and across the country. Musicians, writers, comedians, athletes, and other entertainers need to safeguard their works, brands, and reputations— just as inventors and businesses protect their intellectual property. Brenner helps clients in creative industries protect and monetize the rights to their valuable creations. Our firm’s platform, extending from California to New York, and New Orleans to Nashville, also presents a unique opportunity for her kind of practice.”
“We are excited to welcome Brenner to our office in Nashville,” says Shaun Ramey, Office Managing Member of McGlinchey’s Nashville office. “The entertainment industry is crucial to Music City’s economy, and Brenner’s capability and experience strengthen and deepen the services our firm provides to artists, managers, labels, entertainment companies, and to all of our clients.”
“I work with creatives to protect their work and strategize a plan to build their business,” said McDonald. “My years of experience in this industry give me a deep understanding of what our clients need, and I’ve built broad relationships within the industry that enable me to provide valuable legal solutions to creative clients.”
