About the speaker

Blake Iverson is a partner at the Friedman Iverson law firm, where he specializes in business law, intellectual property and entertainment. Objectively, he has the coolest clientele in town. He represents an eclectic mix of advertising agencies, design firms, restaurants, breweries, artisan manufacturers, bands and events like the Zombie Pub Crawl.

Blake collects records, guitars and mid-century furniture. If it’s heavy, expensive, and difficult to move, he likely has it or covets it. He is currently renovating a house to make room for all of it. He is open to trading legal advice for tiling services.

If Blake is not working, it usually means he’s sleeping or in transit to one of his other gigs. His latest venture is an artist management firm called Riverside Mahalo, which represents local bands Tickle Torture, Suzie, Holidae, Fort Wilson Riot and Pornonono. They are all available for birthday parties, wakes and bar mitzvahs.
