Neon Esquire, LLC is a solo practice, boutique Minnesota law firm specializing in consulting with creative professionals. As a solo practitioner, I represent, counsel and advocate on behalf of creative businesses, artists, designers, agencies and more. Neon Esquire exists to support and value modern businesses and creative people so they can focus on what they do best. Too Minnesota nice? I routinely have those conversations most Midwesterners would rather avoid. Let me take care of the stressful negotiations and strongly worded letters.
Through my unique work experience, I know creative businesses are not your average business however; most other law firms treat them that way. Neon Esquire was created to provide a more industry-specific approach to these types of clients. My legal training is specifically tailored so that I can best understand my clients’ present-day problems and I am able to resolve those issues with innovative solutions.
I use the law and legal problem-solving methods as very powerful tools to empower my clients. This means making sure your contracts actually help you. It means putting processes in place to make sure that you are paid on time and that your ideas are protected, all while establishing long-lasting positive relationships.
My client roster includes apparel brands, academics, fashion designers, marketing agencies, creative directors, advertising agencies, documentary filmmakers, small businesses owners and many other imaginative businesses. I’ve helped clients register their copyrights and trademarks, form their companies, develop best practice methods, fight previous employers, draft and negotiate sales / service agreements- even prepare for market with a mock market appointment! I try to service our clients’ specific needs in every (legal) way possible.
