About

Joshua G. Blum

Attorney Joshua G. Blum’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation including intellectual property, online medium, entertainment, and general business disputes. Blum represents a wide range of clients, in many different industries, including the aviation industry, fashion industry, entertainment industry, as well as corporate executives, before state and federal courts, arbitration panels, and government agencies. Blum is licensed to practice law in New York, California, and Connecticut as well as numerous United States District Courts.

Blum began his legal career as a litigator in New York, where he handled a variety of litigation matters including business litigation and criminal law.

He later moved to Los Angeles where he joined an entertainment and business litigation firm with offices in New York and Los Angeles. While there, he handled a variety of entertainment litigation matters including intellectual property infringement claims, breach of music licensing and distribution agreements, and disputes between artists and producers.

In a move that combined his entertainment and business litigation backgrounds, he then joined a Los Angeles entertainment and business boutique litigation law firm. Blum handled highly contentious entertainment matters that were often in the headlines. Additionally, he also handled several complex commercial litigation matters in the areas of finance, real estate, and class-action defense.

Now established in his own law firm, Blum believes clients deserve a dedicated, zealous advocate who solves legal problems in fresh, innovative ways. That philosophy applies whether a client is a high-tech company, brick-and-mortar business, or an individual. It is a belief that has led to the successful outcomes he has obtained for his clients.

Here are examples of Blum’s successes:

  • Obtained dismissal of breach of contract claims asserted against a high-profile attorney and subsequently prosecuted malicious prosecution claims against the opposing party, obtaining a large settlement.
  • Obtained dismissal of a complaint filed by the former members of a highly successful musical group, which had included 16 claims asserted against their music producer and song writer.
  • Obtained complete dismissal of a copyright infringement lawsuit asserted against an art dealer by the dealer’s former client. The artist had asserted eight claims, all of which were dismissed with prejudice in favor of the defendants.
  • Disqualified an airline’s lead trial counsel from representing the airline at the trial in a breach of contract suit by successfully arguing New York’s witness advocate rule applied because the airline’s lawyer had been a key participant in communications central to the action.
