Prominent entertainment attorney, L. Londell McMillan, whose famous clients include Prince, Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo, Wesley Snipes and Spike Lee. With his New York based firm L. Londell McMillan PC, the 34-year-old legal eagle from Brooklyn has made a name for himself as both a civil rights advocate and an entrepreneur. He is well known for protecting artist’s rights and copyrights while also aligning his primarily African American clients with breakthrough business deals in the international pop culture.
Recently, L. Londell McMillan began representing the estates of Sammy Davis, Jr. and Christopher C. Wallace (aka the Notorious B.I.G.). McMillan gained much notoriety for fearlessly emancipating the music icon Prince from his contract from Warner Brothers Records, the contract that caused Prince to change his name to a symbol and wear the word “slave” on his face. He’s also won several copyright infringement cases on behalf of artists such as Prince, comedian Julie Brown, and various songwriters and music producers (including those suing such entities as Sony Records). McMillan is a graduate of Cornell University and NYU School of Law.
