Drew Sherman


Drew Sherman is Senior Counsel with Adli Law Group focusing on civil, entertainment and intellectual property litigation and transactions.

Prior to joining Adli Law Group P.C., Mr. Sherman had close to 10 years of experience, in his own practice and with other Los Angeles based entertainment firms, representing entertainment industry clients, such as producers, production companies, artists, agencies, and distributors, in all aspects of the television, recording, and motion picture industries, including transactional and litigation matters involving film and television financing, domestic and international television and film distribution, literary options, contract interpretation, copyrights and trademarks, idea submissions, “shopping agreements,” net profit and royalty accountings, television syndication, musical rights and licensing, and rights of publicity. Mr. Sherman has extensive experience in all aspects of intellectual property and entertainment case management from inception through post-trial briefs.

Mr. Sherman believes that comprehensive and transparent transactional work at the beginning of a venture to avoid future litigation and bad blood is the key to a successful entertainment partnership, and that is what he provides. However, when a judicial remedy is necessary, Mr. Sherman zealously defends his clients' rights and vigorously prosecutes for what is just.

Mr. Sherman is a member of the California, Los Angeles County, and Beverly Hills Bar Associations, and can regularly be heard as a legal contributor to the Jim Daniels Show on NBC Sports Radio speaking about the legal aspects of current events in amateur and professional sports.
