What is Music Esquire?

In short, it is the evolution of a revolution that attorney James Landry started back in 2017 when he and Elliot Tousley founded De Novo Agency. De Novo, meaning to start anew or from the beginning, was created to help artists everywhere, no matter their income or social status. Music Esquire is similar in that its main principles revolve around transparency and equal opportunity for all musicians, producers, and independent artists. For this reason, our fees are set up differently than the majority. Rarely will you find a firm with a flat rate, let alone one that is involved with entertainment law. Instead of charging a masked fee, requiring you to hand over a percent of your royalties, or both, we relay all fees and services up front. For Landry, it is more than about making money and collecting royalties; it is about helping people like yourself to receive fair and explicit legal advice and services.


About Attorney
James Landry


From Massachusetts to Florida, and a few states in between, James Landry has created a series of contacts in the music industry. Landry has made a name for himself with De Novo Agency, as well as Songflowr, a music distribution platform that sets artists up for a lifetime. Landry has been about honesty and fairness since his first venture into Entertainment began. As an attorney, the obvious next step was to broaden his efforts into what we now know as the Music Esquire to provide legal services in a way that was attainable for everyone.
