Curtis R. Harrington, II is a founding partner of Farmer Purcell White & Lassiter, PLLC; his practices focuses on working with individuals and small businesses in the areas of litigation, alternative dispute resolution, alcoholic beverage law and licensing, contract negotiation, business formation, personal injury and toxic tort actions, debt restructuring, and both routine and complex entertainment-related matters, such as copyright registration, infringement, copyright recapturing, trademark, licensing, negotiation of recording agreements, media appearance agreements, management agreements, and publishing deals.
Mr. Harrington divides his practice between litigation and matters which never see the inside of a courtroom. Since his admission to the bar, he has represented alcoholic beverage manufacturers, wholesalers, importers and distributors, construction companies, local banks, homeowners and landowners, bankruptcy creditors and debtors, software development companies, and entertainment artists, songwriters, managers, and other rights holders.
Mr. Harrington prides himself in his ability to take a calculated, cost-based approach to every matter, large or small. Whether opening or winding-up a business, protecting assets against future unknowns, or obtaining maximum recovery for an individual or business involved in a dispute, he keeps the client’s objectives and resources in mind while leveraging the firm’s resources for the client’s advantage.
