NBL Member Corey Spivey


Corey J. Spivey is an attorney in the Litigation practice area at Gipson Hoffman & Pancione with more than twenty years of experience counseling and litigating matters on behalf of clients. Corey’s practice is best described as acting as outside general counsel to businesses and individuals whom he advises and acts for on litigation and related matters. He has broad experience in all aspects of general business litigation, copyright, trademark, privacy, Internet, media, First Amendment, and employment legal issues. Additionally, Corey regularly counsels and represents clients in commercial and residential real estate matters, including litigation of easement disputes, commercial and residential lease disputes, construction defects, water intrusion and related issues, retaining wall and boundary disputes, agents’ commissions, homeowner association and CC&R disputes, and insurance coverage issues.

Corey’s clients include domestic and international television production studios, motion picture production companies, major entertainment finance lenders, national broadcast networks and local television stations, a large Southern California private university, major real estate developers, and individuals.

Following the firm’s philosophy on litigation and dispute resolution, Corey’s specific approach is to avoid and defuse disputes where possible by providing clients with wise and strategic counsel aimed at preventing escalation at the beginning of the matter. He strives to achieve efficient results on behalf of his clients, leading to early settlement of disputes whenever possible. When disputes cannot be resolved in the early stages, he aggressively and vigorously litigates those matters (through court proceedings, arbitrations, and mediations) to achieve the best results for his clients. Throughout the process, Corey is always mindful to provide his clients with direct answers to their direct questions. He believes that the attorney-client relationship is most successful when attorney and client have clear understandings of expectations and direct communication on risks and likelihood of specific outcomes.

Corey also works closely with colleagues in the other practice areas within the firm, including Business TransactionsEntertainment & FinanceIntellectual Property, and Real Estate, enabling him to manage matters and strategically advise in these other areas.

Corey was born in Houston, Texas, and he received his undergraduate degree from Rice University, where he graduated as the top-ranking Economics major in his class. He subsequently received his law degree from Yale Law School, before deciding to make his career in Los Angeles. Outside of the practice of law, Corey enjoys snowboarding, adventurous dining, and travel.
