The use of your name or image without your permission can be frustrating and can affect your reputation. As a specialty law firm, we understand how important your image is to your personal and professional success. We know that how you choose to handle those unauthorized uses can have long-term effects.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to sue for right of publicity. At Pfeiffer Law Corp, we want to help you through the process of figuring out whether you have a valid right of publicity claim and pursuing that claim. We want to help you manage and minimize reputational and economic harm, and have the experience to analyze your specific situation and needs to help you determine the right move for yourself and your business.
To help you through your potential right of publicity claim, our skilled team of professionals has devised an analysis to help you grasp the elements of defamation and made it downloadable from our website. We hope that your understanding benefits from it, as well as the rest of our Right of Publicity Page (linked here), which has other valuable resources we created to help you.
If you have any questions or are seeking representation, please reach out to us at (310) 451-5800.
