JonathanM-resizeJonathan B. Mason w/ Mason Law Group P.C.

Mason Law Group, P.C. was founded by Jonathan B. Mason. Jonathan is graduate of Howard University and Georgetown University Law Center. He began his legal career in 1992 as a litigator in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina office of a large regional law firm. In his early years, Jonathan worked on a variety of litigation matters for major corporations and insurance companies. As a young litigator, Jonathan was able to gain significant “hands-on” experience by handling motion hearings, depositions, bench trials and even jury trials. Jonathan experienced his “fifteen minutes of fame” in 1995 as a member of the team that represented a screenwriter who was subpoenaed to testify during the criminal trial of O.J. Simpson. That representation culminated in a nationally-televised court hearing opposite Johnnie Cochran and F. Lee Bailey.

Jonathan was introduced to entertainment law began with his representation of Luther Vandross and Sean “Diddy” Combs in separate litigation matters in North Carolina. Thereafter, he began representing “talent” in entertainment-related transactions. Jonathan relocated to Atlanta in November 1998 and became licensed to practice in Georgia in 1999. His practice has expanded to include representation of independent record labels, music producers, songwriters, production companies, concert promoters, visual artists, and fashion models. Jonathan’s practice also includes entertainment-related litigation, including royalty and commission disputes, copyright infringement, and trademark infringement matters.

Jonathan has also been involved in matters involving Rickey Smiley, the Estate of Wilson Pickett, Mothers Finest, Kirk Franklin, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Idris Elba, Mariah Carey, and T.I., among others. Although Jonathan enjoys working with well-known clients, the heart and soul of his practice is dedicated to assisting unsigned and emerging artists in positioning themselves to reach the next level, or advising start-up record labels and production companies on the legal issues associated with start-up entertainment companies.

  • Negotiated producer agreements between producers and artists such as  T.I., Rick Ross, Lloyd, Young Dro, Mario, Lil Wayne, Mariah Carey, Jay-Z, Ruben Studdard, Jennifer Holliday and many others

  • Negotiated synchronization and master use licenses with Universal Pictures, MGM and national advertisers including Microsoft and Hardees

  • Negotiated trademark co-existence agreement with multinational gaming company

  • Successfully defended comedian in commission dispute with manager

  • Negotiated appearance and materials releases for episode of  Unsung  on TVOne

 Jonathan’s expertise in Entertainment Law landed him the position of Adjunct Professor at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, where he developed a successful curriculum and taught Entertainment Law for several years.
