Brianna E. Williams is an attorney focused on the areas of entertainment, employment, intellectual property, OFCCP compliance, and strategic visioning.

 

She is the founder of Mélange, a full service legal and consulting firm specializing in helping individuals and organizations visualize their dreams, implement tools to reach them, and protect them from harm. Through Mélange, Brianna has helped several organizations manage their differences, similarities, and tensions in meaningful ways. She has presented at conferences across the country on the topics of diversity management, OFCCP compliance, and strategic visioning, and her work has been published nationally.

 

In addition to a rich employment/diversity practice, Mélange’s entertainment practice is a full-service operation geared toward artists in the music industry. Among the clients represented by the firm are Jacquees (Cash Money Records), Rich Homie Quan, Trinidad James, and Reese Johnson (producer for Alicia Keys, Aaron Hall, and Changing Faces).

 

Prior to entering law school, Brianna ran a consulting firm aimed at addressing the unique needs of creative professionals. Through Ethereal Image, Brianna brokered CD replication agreements; assisted her clients with the attainment of copyrights and mechanical licenses; negotiated record deals, management, and booking agreements, and facilitated the distribution of her clients’ releases through established outlets.

 

Brianna is also an active member of the community. She has served as the Director of Communications for the National Bar Association, is a voting member of The Recording Academy; is an active volunteer for the Georgia Lawyers for the Arts; has served as a guest lecturer in Music Business at Loyola University, and is a board member of Music in the Park ATL.
