helping creative people succeed
After recognizing a need for a new type of lawyer to service the frequently unrecognized needs of the information and cultural industries, Kerry made the transition from pure corporate law to new media law. By tailoring his “big firm” experience to support the numerous small and medium sized companies that populate the creative space, he has emerged as an expert in helping entrepreneurs navigate complex business issues.
