Culhane Meadows

Sekou Campbell attended Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he interned for a life-tenured, federal judge in Brooklyn; edited the Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal, a nationally-recognized intellectual property journal; and served as an officer for two student-led organizations (Public Interest Law Student Association and the Black Law Students Association). He also earned a Public Service Scholarship and Award from his school.

He began his legal career at an AmLaw 100 firm founded in Philadelphia, representing commercial litigants in a range of disputes from copyright infringement to breaches of contract and related claims as well as entertainers who required sophisticated and diverse commercial transactions from diligence on film projects to renegotiation of complex record deals. Now, in addition to traditional artists, he represents intellectual creatives who explore the intersection of technology and traditional entertainment

Mr. Campbell has, among other things, drafted and negotiated music, screenplay, literary, theatrical, manager, talent agent and other entertainment-related agreements; formed 501(c)(3) (non-profit) corporations, C-Corps, S-Corps, LLCs, and various partnerships; registered copyrights and trademarks; drafted and negotiated non-disclosure (confidentiality) agreements; and drafted and negotiated buy/sell, operating, employee, separation, redemption and other corporate related agreements.

He has seen the power of artists and entrepreneurs to change the world, and he seeks to continue to represent intellectual creatives’ interests while developing their business aspirations. Mr. Campbell takes his passion into the community by participating as a member in the Copyright Society of the United States of America (CSUSA), Philadelphia Chapter and the Black Entertainment and Sports Law Association (BESLA). He also has volunteered for the Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts and participated in the Arts & Business Council of Philadelphia’s Business on Board program, a six-month boot camp-style course on the ins and outs of non-profit governance.
