Alan Dowling is one of the nation's most prominent entertainment litigators, specializing in sophisticated, complex and high-stakes cases.  His clients and adversaries have included some of the world's best-known recording artists, songwriters, performers, actors, producers, directors, business and personal managers, record labels, music publishers, motion picture studios and production companies.  Mr. Dowling is especially attuned to the public relations concerns that arise, from time to time, in the course of litigating highly publicized disputes between people or companies whose reputations are of paramount importance to them.  In addition to matters indigenous to the United States, he has handled numerous matters reaching as far as Mexico, Central and South America, the Cayman Islands, Canada, England, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and Australia, as well as the former Yugoslavia and the former U.S.S.R., and many of his cases have been closely followed by the media, legal practitioners and entertainment industry executives around the globe.

For the past two decades, Mr. Dowling's clients have come almost exclusively from referrals from colleagues, former co-counsel and opposing counsel, and from current and former clients, a testimony to his reputation and the confidence they have had in the quality of his work.  Mr. Dowling concentrates on working efficiently, cost-effectively and creatively in his clients behalf.  Every case is treated with the presumption that it will likely go to trial, and is pursued with a vigorous litigation strategy, while every effort is also made to reach a favorable resolution by settlement wherever possible.  As a sole practitioner, Mr. Dowling has the flexibility to enter into creative billing arrangements shunned by large firms, including occasionally taking appropriate cases on a contingency percentage fee basis, a fixed fee basis, or a reduced fee basis with bonus incentives.

Mr. Dowling takes pride in having consistently achieved excellent, often exceptional, results over more than three decades of practice.  A sole practitioner for the last 20 years, he has been primarily responsible for the conduct of numerous jury and court trials, international and domestic commercial and judicial arbitrations, mediations, and proceedings before state and federal regulatory agencies, aggressively litigated through final judgment, verdict, decision or award, and he has successfully handled appeals to federal and state courts of appeal, and to the United States Supreme Court.  In addition to having settled numerous substantial and often difficult, rancorous disputes, Mr. Dowling has obtained multi-million dollar verdicts and judgments for plaintiff clients, while, as defense counsel, he has obtained the dismissal of well in excess of a $200,000,000 in claims by his clients adversaries.
