Billboard’s 2021 Top Music Lawyers
Friday, October 29th, 2021
Mike Milom has been recognized by Billboard as one of its top music lawyers for 2021. With a roster that includes Alabama, Russell Dickerson, Mickey Guyton, Emmylou Harris, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, the estate of Hank Williams, Sr., and the Country Music Hall of Fame, business is brisk for Milom. “Our greatest achievement of the past year may have been helping our clients and their teams identify and implement innovative ways to remain in the public eye and create new income streams as a temporary replacement for touring revenue. It’s usually not sexy or publicist-worthy, but it’s essential,” says Milom. “Currently, we are helping several clients analyze and manage the new risks of post-COVID-touring.” Milom feels that the most lasting legacy of 2020 will be that in-person appearances will return, the virtual performance and cyber connection with fans will continue to provide an important option, particularly for beginning and midlevel performers where travel expense renders many in-person gigs unprofitable.
