          Ken has practiced law in both New York and Los Angeles for more than twenty years, representing artists, producers, managers, and companies in matters large and small, litigation and otherwise.  Ken is the only attorney to have trained and been mentored in New York and Los Angeles at the premier boutique entertainment litigation powerhouses, Lavely & Singer in Los Angeles and Parcher & Hayes (now Manatt Phelps and Phillips NY) in New York. Working in the crucible of L&S or P&H's intense and challenging atmosphere's under the guidance of Peter Parcher, Marty Singer, Jay Lavely or Steven Hayes, from the earliest time, Ken was head first and knee deep in the most complex litigations whether involving insurance disputes, copyright, right of publicity, contract, defamation, trademark infringement, artist-management disputes, talent agency act disputes, profit participation cases, idea submission cases, partnership disputes, Guild arbitrations, executive disengagements and labor issues, rights disputes, credit disputes and the like.  One of his proudest moments was when he co-produced Paul Simon's Concert in Central Park in 1991.


          Ken comes to his work with a healthy blend of right and left brained thinking. Ken has studied piano, voice and clarinet.  He has performed in several musicals and put together talent shows which included fronting his own band as lead singer and keyboardist. At Brown University, Ken was musical director of numerous productions. Ken also sang lead in an a cappella group that later morphed into the wildly successful a cappella group "Rockapella".  WhIle in graduate school, Ken also found time to record and perform as a tenor in the Grammy-Award nominated LA Jazz Choir.  Ken most recently made his Disney Hall debut introducing the new operetta "Separations" with libretto by Justice Arthur Gilbert.
