Marc Stollman, Esq.

Stollman Law is a nationally recognized transactional entertainment law practice, which was re-opened in 2010 by Marc Stollman after three years as the senior Business Affairs Executive and General Counsel for a multi-platform entertainment company, with whom he remains affiliated as outside counsel. Marc has exclusively practiced Entertainment Law for 21 years and represents award-winning recording artists, audio and audio-visual producers, songwriters, record companies, music publishers, concert and event promoters and producers, television studios and networks, reality show finalists, internet and media companies, radio stations, visual artists, managers, agents, industry executives, models, athletes, and on-air personalities, as well as providing publishing administration services.

After having built his successful law practice in Boca Raton and Miami, Marc was recruited in 2007 to build, manage, and be fully responsible for the legal and business affairs department of a unique company that came to be known as S2BN Entertainment, an international family show and event company (spearheaded by Michael Cohl) engaged in the development, production, and promotion of large scale touring shows, unique live music events, live theatre, and multimedia product. Prior to being spun off, S2BN was the artist development arm of Live Nation, where Marc held primary legal responsibility for advancing the industry standard “360 model”, resulting in the precedent-setting signings of Madonna, U2, Shakira, Jay-Z, Nickelback, and the The Zac Brown Band. Each of these deals, along with the acquisition by Live Nation of Signatures Merchandise, the largest merchandise company in the music industry, were principally drafted, negotiated, and “closed” by Marc. Michael Cohl/S2BN was the lead producer of the Broadway musical, “Spiderman”, as well as the Broadway and nationally touring musical review “Rock of Ages”. Other significant projects at S2BN included the life story of Harry Belafonte, the Grammy winning documentary featuring Mumford and Sons, known as “Railroad Revival”, the famed 90th birthday celebration for Peter Seeger, held in the sold-out Madison Square Garden, and the national live tours of “Yo Gabba Gabba”, “Blackout”, “How To Train Your Dragon”, and “The Marvel Experience”.

Prior to receiving a JD degree from Nova University, Marc received B.A. and M.B.A. degrees from Rutgers University. Marc is an adjunct professor at Florida Atlantic University, a long-time member of the Executive Counsel for the Entertainment and Sports Law Section of the Florida Bar, and is a frequent speaker at entertainment industry seminars, including currently acting as Co-Chair of the ABA’s Entertainment Law Symposium in Miami, as well as college/law schools (such as the University of Miami, Full Sail University, Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University, the University of Florida, and Florida Coastal School of Law) and community events. Marc is married, with two ever-growing children, and lives and works in Boca Raton, Florida.
