His clients include biotech companies, major manufacturers, and entrepreneurs.
Drew is active in pro bono matters, volunteering to provide legal advice and guidance to artists and non-profit community organizations in the Chicago area.
Drew's prior experience includes in-house experience as a senior analyst in Black Entertainment Television's (BET) legal department. In that position, Drew managed the rights and clearances process for over 150 programs, researched rights issues, and negotiated content-related contracts including music licenses, talent deals, and vendor service agreements. Drew also provided investigative support to BET's litigation team in response to potential litigation.
From his years inside a major corporation, Drew learned the importance of adopting a client-centered, forward-thinking approach to resolving issues and anticipating future risks with the client's business objectives in mind.
