“Kim’s near decade as General Counsel at Screenvision Media gives the Davis Firm welcome support at the highest level for our growing Film and TV practice, and her prior experience as head of business affairs at Windup Entertainment and as part of the firm Davis, Shapiro, et al., had already given her an incredible foundation of music industry experience.

“Kim’s arrival at the firm is one of those moments for me and I am thrilled to welcome her. I know that the Davis Firm will soar to new heights with her addition.
