Brassel Law, a new entertainment law firm dedicated to the needs of musicians and music industry entrepreneurs, is open for business in Nashville, Tennessee.

The new firm aims to make comprehensive legal representation accessible to clients at all levels of their careers, from aspiring artists to seasoned industry veterans. To do this, Brassel Law will offer a mix of innovative, technology-forward services and educational programming in addition to traditional bespoke legal representation.

Brassel Law will introduce two services over the next month. The first, Office Hours, will provide a free opportunity for clients to triage legal issues they might not otherwise have the resources to address. Clients can register for these one-on-one legal advising sessions on a first-come, first-served basis beginning on October 23, and the first session will be held on October 30.

On October 30, Brassel Law will also launch its tiered-membership program. Clients will have access to a range of services including no-charge “quick question” emails and document reviews, priority availability, and discounted hourly and fixed-fee rates.

Members will also have the option to access Cadence.io, a platform built by Brassel Law that will give clients the ability to generate custom, routinely used documents without the cost and traditional wait time associated with traditional legal drafting.

“A music publisher using Cadence.io will be able to generate a license in minutes with the confidence that the agreement is accurate, well-drafted, and up to date,” says Brassel. “These aren’t fill-in-the-blank templates that you pull from a website. We’ll work with members to build base documents based on their needs, including terms that are specific to their business and contract clauses that might vary depending on the deal, like payment terms and contract duration. We’ll also periodically review and revise the base agreements to reflect any changes in the law.” Members can generate documents based on their custom document builds under a flat monthly fee.

Program members will design their memberships using a menu of add-on services and resources, resulting in a membership package that provides the services they need at a predictable price point. “The goal is to make sure clients get the first-class legal services they need without worrying about an unpredictable legal bill or turnaround time,” says Brassel. Membership packages will start at $147/month.

Alandis Brassel is building Brassel Law based on his experiences in law, education, and the music industry. He most recently worked as Counsel at Scale LLP, a law firm with roots in Silicon Valley, where he practiced entertainment and trademark law, and as an assistant professor at the University of Memphis Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music, where he headed the music business program and ran the school’s record label, High Water Records, which owns and administers recordings and songs by delta blues greats such as R.L. Burnside, Jessie Mae Hemphill, and Junior Kimbrough.

Brassel’s legal career began as legal counsel to Congressman Jim Cooper, where he focused on policy and the office’s community relationships, including Nashville’s music industry. He also served as the program director at the Arts and Business Council of Greater Nashville, where he was responsible for the nonprofit’s legal and education programs. Prior to his legal career, Brassel was a professional audio engineer with clients such as Bloomberg Television, Warner Chappell Music, Mosley Music Group, and Def Jam.

Brassel serves on the board of Nashville Music Equality, a nonprofit dedicated to creating an anti-racist environment in the Nashville music industry. The Vanderbilt University Law School grad is an active member of The Recording Academy and Country Music Association.
