From Founder & Managing Attorney Shay M Lawson

We work hard to protect your business so you can get back to business.

I know what it's like to work day and night building a dream. I know because that is exactly what I have been doing over the past thirteen years building a reputation as the go-to IP lawyer for celebrities and entertainers. I’m grateful that in 2020 Super Lawyers named me in the top 2.5% of all intellectual property attorneys in Georgia and in 2021 and 2022 Billboard Magazine named me as one of the Top Music Lawyers in the business.

But you shouldn’t have to be a big name celebrity to get big name protection for your firm. That is why I started the Law Firm of Lawson McKinley – to serve you, our community.

So whether it's NDAs to protect your ideas, help launching your LLC, or protecting your brand with trademarks,our talented team is ready to help you: Handle Business. Grow Your Brand. Get Protected.
