Davey Jay, Esq.
DAVEY JAY is a shareholder at Meehle & Jay, PA and the 2017-2018 Chair of the Entertainment, Arts, and Sports Law (EASL) section of the Florida Bar. She dedicates her practice to the areas of Entertainment and Intellectual Property law. This includes negotiating and drafting various agreements; analyzing trademark search reports and filing registrations with the United States Patent and Trademark Office; assisting with rights management; and evaluating and assisting clients with claims of trade secret, trademark, and copyright infringement.
Davey’s clients are creatives, performers, dreamers, techies, makers, and designers, quite a few of whom work in many areas of the entertainment industry, including filmmakers, musicians, actors, agents, managers, promoters, writers, journalists, and production companies. She has worked on deals with major enterprises such as HBO, Warner/Chappell, Discovery, Telemundo, Sony/Columbia, and Sub Pop, as well as with indies and startups, and has represented Oscar and Grammy winners along with artists and creatives who are just beginning to embark on their careers.
In addition to practicing law, Davey has been an educator for over twelve years. She created and taught Music Copyright & Publishing in the Music Business Bachelor’s program and Entertainment & Communications Law in the Film Production Masters of Fine Art program at Full Sail University.
She loves coffee, Scrabble, indie rock, and crunchy leaves. She’s also the kind of nerd who read the Terms of Service for Pokémon Go just for fun.
