Max Hass

Attorney at Law

Max is an entertainment and business attorney, musician, and the founder of Hass Law LLC. He has worked with dozens of musicians, artists, filmmakers, and small businesses in the creative sector, beginning his career in the vibrant Southeast Louisiana region before relocating to Denver in 2019.

Max received his law degree from Tulane University in 2015, where he focused on intellectual property and entertainment law. While a student at Tulane, Max was an editor of the Tulane Law Review and president of the Tulane Entertainment & Art Law Society. He earned a Pro Bono Service Award for serving over 200 hours as an intern with The ELLA Project, and was a student attorney at the Tulane Civil Litigation Clinic, where he participated in the settlement of a long-running housing discrimination lawsuit. Max also worked as a summer associate at Chadbourne & Parke (now Norton Rose Fulbright) in New York City, and was an intern at the New Orleans BioInnovation Center, where he gained experience in patent and trademark law.

 

After graduation, Max began working as an artist manager and booking agent, representing some of New Orleans’ most exciting funk, jazz, and rock artists. He also worked as an independent concert promoter, putting on successful shows across a wide range of genres in many of the city's best venues. During this time, Max was also the bassist and manager for a New Orleans-based funk and blues band.

At the end of 2017, Max transitioned away from management and booking and launched Action Potential Entertainment, a full-service entertainment law firm, to provide entertainment law services that had not been widely available to New Orleans' creative community. Since that time, he was fortunate enough to work with some of Louisiana's most talented creative individuals as well as a number of emerging record labels and small businesses. In 2019, Max and his partner moved to Denver, and he decided to expand the firm into new regions and serve a wider base of clients.

With that, Hass Law LLC was born. In addition to the entertainment and copyright transactional work that earned the firm its early reputation, Hass Law now offers services in trademark law, intellectual property litigation, business law, and commercial litigation.

​​In addition to his firm practice, Max has developed a series of copyright workshops for musicians, visual artists, and filmmakers, and has presented them with a collaborate for the past five years. He has been invited to speak on intellectual property and entertainment industry matters at the University of New Orleans, Tulane University, New Orleans Video Access Center (NOVAC), the Joan Mitchell Center, and a number of music conferences and events.

Outside of practicing law, Max spends his time reading, playing bass, drums and guitar, writing music and learning piano. He also enjoys cooking, yoga, and getting outdoors as much as possible. He is conversational in French and is currently learning Spanish.
