Skilled Business Law Guidance For The Music Industry

How can you calculate the cost of a missed opportunity or a mistake that should have been avoided? Musicians and industry professionals who delve into business law matters on their own often end up lamenting how much they lost because they didn’t invest in legal guidance. By taking a few simple steps today, you can rest assured that your interests are protected and that no loose ends will come back to haunt you in the future.

Based in Chicago, Thirdinline Legal handles a broad range of business law matters across the country for creative artists and others who make their living in the music industry: producers, entrepreneurs, creative artists, and professionals of all kinds.

Attorney Odell Mitchell III is a former musician and producer. With his musical insights and industry connections, he understands the legal, financial and creative sides of issues, and he can capably represent your interests in matters ranging from routine governance to momentous transactions and disputes.

Helping You Harness The Power

As a music insider, Odell Mitchell III understands firsthand the importance of safeguarding your rights and interests in a fast-paced, competitive – and sometimes cutthroat – industry.

His law practice is devoted to supporting those kindred musicians and behind-the-scenes professionals who make the magic happen. He represents singers, songwriters, composers, rap and hip-hop acts, DJs, backup vocalists and session musicians, producers and engineers, dancers, and many others in the music world.
