Joy applied her legal training and business acumen to start Imperium 7, a successful Hollywood talent agency. She built the business from a start-up to a full-service talent firm. Besides being the agent to over 300 artists, she handled all of the company’s legal matters, including all talent and celebrity contracts, renegotiations and payments, reemployment matters, and agency and union contracts. To give back to the community, she guest-taught voice-over agent fundamentals and mentored several talented individuals from agents-in-training to full-fledge agents with their own client list.
Prior to starting Imperium 7, Joy practiced at Farella, Braun & Martel, LLP, a Law360 California Powerhouse law firm. At Farella, Braun’s San Francisco, California, office, Joy focused mostly on litigation and dispute resolution, including delivering oral arguments and cross-examining witnesses in various state and federal judicial and arbitration proceedings.
