Attorney Ivan Parron, principal of the entertainment and sports law firm PARRON LAW, is frequently referred to as an “Entertainment Industry Entrepreneur.” With 20 plus years of business and legal experience, offices in Los Angeles, New York and Miami, and a unique blend of media technology expertise and market trend savvy, Ivan Parron is uniquely qualified as a leader to strategize in and counsel on the ongoing revolution of multi-platform media and television content distribution. His first contribution to the industry’s future has garnered him the title “inventor of the online music store” after the internet startup he founded in 1998 became an early predecessor to Apple’s iTunes. Negotiating the earliest digital music distribution deals with Universal, Sony and Warner solidified his reputation as a dealmaker. Parron was later recruited by Universal Music Group as in-house counsel, overseeing business and legal affairs and negotiating with Fox’s AMERICAN IDOL. Parron’s eventual departure from Universal to launch his law firm was well timed with the rapid growth of reality television. He has represented top talent in shows including VH-1’s HOGAN KNOWS BEST, MTV’s JERSEY SHORE, NBC’s THE VOICE, Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES and many more. He is equally experienced on the TV production side, representing international companies such as Endemol and Freemantle Media and serving as production counsel on shows including The X FACTOR. Parron is two-term elected Grammy Governor with the Recording Academy, an Emmy Voting Member with the Television Academy and and active member of the Sports Lawyers Association. He is a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post on entertainment, media and sports law and his legal articles on the entertainment industry have been published by the American Bar Association. Parron is an adjunct professor of sports law at FIU College of Law and a licensed NFL and NBA agent.
