NICHOLAS A. ROSENBERG

Nick Rosenberg is a member of Nixon Peabody’s Private Equity and Investment Funds practice group. He focuses his practice on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and commercial transactions.

Nick also practices in the firm’s Sports and Entertainment practice advising clients in the music, television and film industries on a wide variety of matters.

What do you focus on?

I counsel clients on various issues related to the formation, financing and growth of their businesses, advising established and emerging companies in a range of business and corporate law matters. I have represented both buyers and sellers in both stock and asset acquisitions as well as advised investors and funds in connection with various investments. On the flip side, I also work with emerging companies seeking capital from investment funds, angel investors and lenders. Working with various types of companies also has given me the opportunity to work on different types of commercial and licensing transactions.

As a member of Nixon Peabody’s Sports and Entertainment group, I represent recording artists, songwriters, music producers, record labels, TV & radio personalities, management companies and others in the entertainment business. My practice focuses on transactional entertainment, media and licensing matters representing both creative individuals and companies in connection with the various aspects of different types of creative endeavors. In this capacity, I have represented music producers and writers who have contributed to records by such artists as Whitney Houston, James Taylor, Snoop Dogg, Diddy, Lil Wayne and Perry Farrell.

In the course of my work on commercial transactions I have developed extensive experience in various export control regulations, including those administered by the Department of Commerce, the State Department and the country-based economic sanctions program administered by the Treasury Department. I counsel clients on both complying with these regulations and addressing export control issues in the course of corporate transactions.

What do you see on the horizon?

People pursuing creative endeavors will increasingly seek alternative ways to finance those endeavors. We have already seen crowdfunding and dollars from major brands play a significant role in the development of music, television, film and technology projects. However as the technology and entertainment industries continue to converge, we will likely see investors play a more significant role in the development of creative projects.
