Firm sought out for music industry expertise
PE&G represented Dave Buckner in his case against the popular thrash rock band PAPA ROACH. Buckner's complaint, filed in the Sacramento County Superior Court, sought damages and an accounting for royalties and other entitlements in connection with his 15-year involvement as a founding member of the band. David Given has previously been involved in leaving member cases for such platinum and multi-platinum acts as 4 NON-BLONDES, CAKE, MARILYN MANSON, SOCIAL DISTORTION and RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS. He has also been consulted as a music industry expert in several high profile rock-and-roll divorces, including those of Jerry Garcia (GRATEFUL DEAD, JERRY GARCIA BAND), Tre Cool (GREEN DAY) and Lars Ulrich (METALLICA).
