About Us

Glinert Chidekel is a full-service transactional law firm focused primarily on Digital Media, Entertainment, Technology, and Finance. We represent a range of clients, from early-stage startups and emerging growth businesses to larger operating enterprises and investors.

Our team manages complex rights acquisition and licensing, corporate, intellectual property, and technology matters, and we firmly position ourselves to become a trusted member of our clients’ team to advise and provide the support to navigate the challenges and meet operating goals through their entire business lifecycle. From new company formation, to establishing sustainable growth and operations, to raising capital, and ultimately through a variety of strategic exits, our attorneys stay in- step to anticipate and address the needs of our clients.

We also provide access to ancillary non-legal services through our vast network of investors, entrepreneurs, and technology innovators. It is our belief that very few make it to the “top” without the guidance and support of a highly skilled legal and business team. The success of our clients is our top priority and we believe that this means equipping our clients with both, skilled legal counsel, and strategic business support.
