Dickinson Wright hires music expert
Dickinson Wright has hired Noah McPike to join its Nashville office as of counsel.

McPike focuses on representing major record label artists, writers and producers in a variety of legal areas, including intellectual property.

He has helped clients with the procurement and licensing of copyright and trademarks.

Commenting on the move, McPike said he was “honoured” to represent “truly great people” in Nashville and the music industry.

“Joining a world class firm like Dickinson Wright, and having access to the firm’s vast array of resources, will allow me to continue providing services to my clients at the highest level.”

“I am both humbled and thrilled to be joining Derek Crownover, a great lawyer and friend, and his amazing team."

Crownover, leader of the international entertainment, sports and media practice group, said: “I have known Noah for quite a few years and have not only been friends with him but respected his work when he was on the other side of deals.”

“He and I both gained great experience with Orville Almon in the past too. Noah will be a great addition and team member for our growing group on Music Row and we are very excited to have him here with this great team we are building.”
