Mitch Tuchman helps publishers and authors develop mutually beneficial business relationships. He also helps copyright and trademark owners optimize the value of their intellectual property and defend their intellectual property rights.

His copyright clients include publishers of books and scholarly journals, authors, authors’ and artists’ estates, nonprofit charitable organizations, architects, photographers, filmmakers, software and website owners and developers, educational institutions, textile manufacturers and healthcare providers, among others.

Before becoming an IP attorney, Mitch spent ten years as a freelance writer and editor and fourteen years as publisher of exhibition and collection catalogs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Because he has been both a publisher and writer, he understands copyright matters from the client’s perspective.Representative Matters
