Miami law firm AXS LAW Group supports local arts

Given its location in the Wynwood arts district, AXS LAW Group has witnessed firsthand how artists have been hit hard by the pandemic. Now it’s here to help through an initiative under its AXS ART branch.

Miami-based AXS LAW Group recently created the  AXS to ART Pro Bono Initiative to provide free legal services and counseling for South Florida artists affected, unemployed or displaced by the coronavirus pandemic. AXS LAW Group, founded by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, will begin accepting applications from interested clients starting on Dec. 1. A committee will review applications based on a case to case basis. Once selected, clients will be placed with experienced attorneys who will assist them with their needs. 

“Over 95% of art events have been postponed or cancelled until further notice due to the COVID-19 crisis, creating a devastating impact on creative industries and our economy,” said Jeff Gutchess, founder partner at AXS Law Group. “On a local level, the cancellation of Art Basel in Miami brought upon the loss of significant local revenue affecting a variety of economic sectors, as well as a disheartening full-stop to a long-standing cultural tradition in our city. That’s why we are launching the AXS to ART initiative to help local artists and creatives during this difficult time.” 

For those clients selected, AXS LAW will offer pro bono legal services such as contract review, business law, lease negotiation, intellectual property structuring and trademark filing, and other services as needed on a case by case basis. They will also provide quarterly follow-ups where they’ll meet with their clients to review and assess their evolving legal needs.

To receive information about the AXS to ART Pro Bono Initiative or to submit an application, contact axsart@axslawgroup.com or click here.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
