Sidley provides all forms of legal assistance to nonprofit arts and cultural organizations to advance their mission. Throughout history, the arts have facilitated conversations between cultures and increased understanding across unequal groups, improving the communities in which they exist. We help our communities thrive by supporting those cultural organizations that cannot typically afford the legal services that all businesses need to survive and grow. This investment helps our neighbors share their stories and preserve their culture. Our work includes, but is not limited to, venue contracting, international touring logistics and finance, property acquisition, advising on technology questions, and reviewing and drafting IT service agreements.
Our representative clients include the San Francisco Ballet Theatre, Colorado Ballet Theatre, and Lincoln Center Foundation.
