Amanda Whorton

Of Counsel

Amanda’s practice focuses on music, entertainment, and intellectual property, and among her clients have been musicians, television and radio stations, artists, filmmakers, and game developers.  Prior to her work at Odin Law and Media, Amanda clerked for the Honorable Gregory P. McGuire on the North Carolina Business Court and practiced intellectual property, entertainment, and media law at another North Carolina law firm. She currently teaches law at Cornell Law School in Ithaca, New York.

Amanda’s passion for her music, entertainment, and intellectual property clients stems from her passion for storytelling.  Prior to her legal career, Amanda was a television producer for two different PBS stations in Florida, which gives her a unique perspective in understanding what her clients need.

Her favorite game to play with friends is Dungeons & Dragons because it’s collaborative storytelling and it gives her a chance to be creative!
