about christine white esq. mba

My name is Christine White and I am the founding attorney here at WLS. Thank you for visiting our site. I hope you can sense that I started this law firm with you, the artist, in mind. My mother, who was a fashion entrepreneur and my father who consulted business, instilled in me a love for growing business from the ground up. As an attorney and an MBA, I have created the perfect balance between art and commerce here at White Legal Strategy Group, LLC.  

I fell in love with art and culture as a child when I discovered and pursued dance. I danced throughout high school and at my alma mater Spelman College where I studied political science and english. It was in Atlanta during this time that I began working in entertainment, witnessing the creation of many iconic recordings and entertainment businesses. I expanded my study of the music industry with Def Jam, Rap-a-Lot and Disturbing the Peace until I entered law school to learn the anatomy of the deal. I followed up my law degree with a Masters in Business Management and Technology at Georgia Tech as I saw the need for greater finance and business expertise in the entertainment industry. 

As an attorney, I focus my energy on helping clients generate the most value for their works through sales, performance, licensing, publishing and a myriad of other creative business models that generate revenue. Further, my business degree and love for technology has allowed me to represent clients in various roles as angel investors, start-up founders and venture capitalist. White Legal Strategy's primary areas of focus include entertainment law, corporate (business/investment) law and tax law because this is where we can create the most value for our clients.
