Representing clients in the media, digital and entertainment industries, Angelika Heim has practised exclusively in entertainment law for over 10 years.
She works closely with clients in the creative sphere, advising on transactional matters, business strategies and disputes that relate to film, television, branded content, talent agreements, book publishing, music recording and publishing, digital channels and intellectual property protection.
Angelika’s music clients include emerging artists to Juno award-winning and Grammy nominated recording artists. She negotiates and counsels clients on recording, publishing, sponsorship, endorsement, and merchandising agreements and advises on how to protect and exploit their intellectual property rights with a focus on the evolving technological climate. She also works with independent labels and publishers on engaging talent and organizing the production, licensing and sale of their intellectual property rights.
Her film and television clients rely on her to shepherd a production from development to post-production, including securing intellectual property rights, negotiating distribution and broadcast agreements, engaging talent, errors and omissions review, and navigating the funding agencies, financing models and tax credit opportunities in Canada and with international partners.
Angelika's early roots are in the creative industries. Before becoming a lawyer, she worked in the theatre, television, news, film and magazine publishing industries as an actor, producer, director, writer and editor.
