I am an IP/Corporate lawyer who represents established large companies, middle market and emerging companies in the interactive entertainment ,digital content, and tech spaces. I started my own firm in 1995 and built it with one partner up to 5 lawyers and 8 staff people in Los Angeles, CA. We merged it with Nixon Peabody in 2006 to become their interactive entertainment and new media team. Our practice really grew on the large firm platform and this year we launched the firm's IP Transactions Practice Group to focus on these areas across the whole law firm. In 2010, I joined Loeb & Loeb to chair their interactive entertainment practice. Today we represent some of the leading interactive entertainment publishers and
developers in the digital and traditional media.
When I am not working, I am either kicking a soccer ball with my daughter or walking the dog at the beach in Los Angeles, CA.

Dan O.'s Random Notes on the Video Game Industry
I am a video game lawyer, who is fascinated by the changing technology, economic and legal issues in the interactive entertainment industry. To my family's chagrin I read as much as I can in these areas and occasionally, I spot a trend, a really useful article or even have an insight or two. So at a friend's
suggestion, I thought I would finally take a stab at blogging about this issues. I hope you find this blog useful.
Currently, there are no book details for Dan Offner.
