Noted music law firm Carroll, Guido, & Groffman, LLP recently opened an office in Nashville, Tennessee through an of-counsel arrangement with newly formed local firm Marcus & Colvin, LLP.

Carroll, Guido & Groffman, LLP, which was founded in Los Angeles in 1989 and has maintained offices in both Los Angeles and New York City since 1994, sought to establish a presence in Nashville because of Music City’s powerful role in the music business. The ten lawyer firm represents successful artists in all genres of music, producers, publishers, management companies, music festivals and record labels, as well entrepreneurs in new media and digital distribution.

Rosemary Carroll said about the new alliance with Marcus and Colvin:
“Michael, Elliot and I have wanted to establish a base in Nashville for years because it is such a source of creativity and power in the music business. We are very excited by the opportunity to do this with Kent and Jeff who are the ideal colleagues for us”.
