Seasoned litigators and business counselors Steven Baron, Natalie Harris and Brendan Healey announced today the launch of Baron Harris Healey, a boutique law firm focused on media law, intellectual property, and business litigation.

“The three of us are devoted to providing sophisticated guidance to our clients, and we are delighted to leverage our entrepreneurial drive to build a practice dedicated to serving a wide range of businesses in media, e-commerce, and beyond,” said Steve Baron.

The firm protects and defends content creators, providing practical solutions for print and digital publishers, broadcasters, e-commerce leaders, brands, and agencies.

“These are the companies and individuals on whom we all rely for important contributions to our culture and economy,” said Natalie. “Our firm passionately pursues their best interests within a nimble, service-driven environment.”

After working together for more than 15 years, the three name partners bring complementary skills and experience to create a full-service practice with boutique expertise and personal attention.

“Steve, Natalie, and I collaborated when I was in-house at a media company, and I appreciated their good judgment and careful attention to their clients’ needs,” said Brendan. “Now as part of Baron Harris Healey, we strive to form long-term relationships with clients and to offer savvy, efficient solutions designed to achieve the best results.”

For more than 30 years, Steve has counseled media and entertainment companies, publishers and authors and a wide range of other businesses on their intellectual property matters, commercial disputes, and business transactions. He represents clients’ interests in federal and state courts, with administrative tribunals, and in arbitrations and mediations, as well as with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Copyright Office.

Natalie advises and defends clients who create, publish, and broadcast content. A veteran litigator, she works to deliver optimal results in defamation, right of publicity, invasion of privacy, and trademark and copyright infringement matters. She also has extensive experience counseling clients in sweepstakes, contests, and digital marketing.

A former in-house counsel at two major media companies, Brendan’s guidance is rooted in a deep understanding of the opportunities and stressors in the modern business environment.
