Entertainment litigation in Houston? Tom Fulkerson has developed a relationship with Destiny’s Child and its artists, Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, together with their management company, Music World Sanctuary Urban Group Inc. That relationship began in 2000.


Generally, there are three types of disputes in which we have represented Destiny’s Child or its artists: disputes with former members concerning use of the group name and allegedly defamatory statements contained in songs released after their departure, claims by former managers or their successors to management fees, and claims by others that they, rather than the artists themselves, generated the music or lyrics to such hits as Survivor and Crazy in Love. We have also handled responses to defamatory comments made in relation to the group, its members, or its management and have obtained retractions.


Tom Fulkerson also serves as local counsel to the Rolling Stones when their tours take them to Houston or Austin.
