Practicing law above the house of blues®
Suzette Toledano of Toledano Entertainment and Arts Law maintains a transactional intellectual property law practice located above the House of Blues in New Orleans with emphasis on licensing, copyright, trademark, rights of publicity, branding, visual art and music. She and her family developed the real estate where the prototype House of Blues is located resulting in the creation of a Vieux Carre Entertainment District and positively impacting the land use of the Upper Decatur quadrant of the French Quarter.
First venturing into the cannabis space in August of 2015, Suzette provides intellectual property legal services to a branding client operating in the States of Colorado, Nevada and Washington (where adult use cannabis is legal) on trademark and licensing issues pertinent to the Willie’s Reserve trademarks. She also proudly provides intellectual property licensing services to a Colorado medical cannabis company known worldwide for its work with children suffering with dravet's syndrome and a California medical cannabis dispensary known to have established the “gold standard” for dispensaries. She recently led a team who submitted an application to be the operator on behalf of a Louisiana university’s Therapeutic Marijuana Producer’s license.
Suzette works with The National World War II Museum on entertainment related matters. Other clients include record labels, music publishers, concert promoters, recording artists, songwriters, producers, visual artists, photographers, authors, screenwriters and filmmakers, with Oscar and Grammy nominees/winners among them.
Proud to currently serve as a Board Member of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and Foundation, Inc., Suzette’s additional civic involvement includes multiple past terms of serving on the boards of non-profit arts, education, real estate, women’s business and healthcare non-profit organizations.
