Joe Voss

Joe Voss is of counsel at Leavens Strand & Glover. He represents companies in the film, television, digital media and music industries on general corporate, production-related and financing matters in Illinois and Michigan, as well as nationally.

Joe has particular experience advising clients on artist-cause collaborations and assisting them in using media to further their non-profit missions. This involves providing guidance on the tax-exemption process, general business matters, and the numerous legal issues that arise when entertainers and non-profits collaborate.

Joe maintains an active general corporate practice, advising companies throughout the United States on mergers & acquisitions, financing transactions, and contracting matters.

In addition to his legal practice, he serves as Director of Strategic Partnerships for Creative Many Michigan, a non-profit committed to advancing the creative industries in Michigan. He is also serving his second consecutive term on the Michigan Film and Digital Media Office Advisory Council, a position to which he was appointed by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
