LOS ANGELES, July 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The law firm Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin LLP has welcomed entertainment and intellectual property attorney Heidy Vaquerano to its Los Angeles team.
Heidy has over 16 years of experience in both entertainment and intellectual property matters. Her strength lies in providing clients strategic advice to help protect and monetize their intellectual property. Her unique ability to bridge the gap between the entertainment and tech industries has allowed her to represent cutting edge start-ups that use branded content at the core of their product.
Heidy's connection to the tech industry goes beyond legal representation. She is also involved as a board member of various tech non-profits and as an advocate for women in the industry. She explained that she's eager to help female entrepreneurs and founders who are often an underrepresented minority in the tech industry.
Prior to joining Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin LLP, Ms. Vaquerano ran her own diverse boutique entertainment and new media practice where she represented a wide range of clients including actors, Grammy nominated musicians, global merchandise companies, film and television producers, writers, production companies, independent record labels, and tech start-ups and consultants.
She feels that Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin, LLP will be the ideal environment for her to continue to grow her practice and provide broader services to clients. She explained, "I am passionate about advising my clients – whether it is an artist signing their first record deal or a female entrepreneur launching her first business – providing each a high level of service is at the core of my practice. Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin LLP provides me with the resources of a larger firm and the support of similarly passionate attorneys which makes it easier to achieve my goals."
Heidy received her undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California and her J.D. from Southwestern Law School. She is based at the firm's West Los Angeles office.
