Steve Gordon, an established entertainment attorney and author, recently passed away. Mr. Gordon spoke at a BESLS event last spring about his 25 plus years working in the entertainment industry and his book, The 11 Contracts That Every Artist, Songwriter, and Producer Should Know, which was published last year. Mr. Gordon had an extensive career, including ten years as a Director of Business Affairs for Sony Music, before going into private practice. As a solo practitioner, he represented emerging record label artists, as well as large entertainment companies, like Time Life Films and Soul Train Holdings. With such an impressive and eclectic resume, he will be remembered as an important figure in the field of entertainment law. We extend our deepest condolences to Mr. Gordon’s family and friends.
