Mark Edwards

Lawyer, Entrepreneur, Media Producer.

As a business executive and lawyer, I continue to build and to help others build technology, entertainment and new media businesses.

I have been a founder – launching CrowdWave, a proprietary, mass-interactive game platform for professional and collegiate sports – a producer – developing and financing over $52M of children’s animation – a builder – managing development and production of “state of the art” advergames and interactive web sites for the NA advertising industry – and a trial lawyer – over a decade in commercial litigation.

It’s the combinations that interest me: business and law, education and experience, advice and action, theory and practice, independence and teamwork, technology and creative content.

Byron Pascoe

Lawyer, Entrepreneur, Media Producer.

Providing value to creative clients starts with understanding creative businesses.

I have produced television, digital and theatrical programming, and videos about the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, featuring Canadian celebrities, which aired nationally on TV and in theatres.

Creative clients are also business clients. I have a business degree, mentor entrepreneurs, and practiced corporate and intellectual property law before joining Edwards.

Ian Harris

As an entertainment lawyer I provide counsel on legal issues in the film, television, music, and gaming industries.

Building successful relationships with clients has always been a top priority. While at law school I represented tenants in disputes with their landlords. Prior to joining Edwards PC, I articled at a personal injury law firm in Toronto.

Entertainment law allows us to work with artists and creators. Applying legal skills in an artistic field is a privilege that allows me to build a practice I can be passionate about.

Lyndra Griffith

I have a keen understanding of the entertainment industry, having represented clients in music, television, film, publishing, performing arts and visual arts. I am dedicated to ensuring that my clients are well informed and supported at every stage of their career.

I’m passionate about the arts and enjoy giving back to the community, including by speaking at professional development events, and I nurture my creative side and love of the arts in various ways, including being a cast member in the Great Canadian Theatre Company’s annual lawyer play fundraiser productions of Parfumerie, The Mouse that Roared and The Rule of Three.

I am fluent in English and French, and represent clients in both official languages.

Gina Lapain

Working with creative people has always been my dream.

While not an artist myself, I have always worked behind-the-scenes in support of artists from a variety of disciplines. I have worked in Arts Administration for a number of years and, after receiving my law degree, have found myself in the perfect place to serve and support the creative clients here at Edwards.

I have nearly half a decade of experience in quadrupedalism. Applying that experience, along with magnetic sociability, ensures minimal stress for co-workers and clients.
