Don’t be confused: Jennifer Justice’s The Justice Dept. is largely unrelated to the law. Instead, Justice, known as JJ, uses her extensive experience as an entertainment executive to help artists build their careers and business portfolios. She specializes in the intersection between art and commerce, and her company describes itself as a law firm devoted to advising, consulting, and advocating for women across the entertainment industry.

JJ first found her footing in the industry as an attorney at Carroll, Guido & Groffman LLP, where she was made a partner after only three years at the firm. Her impressive roster of clients included Jay-Z, Mark Ronson, and Outkast. Soon after that, she joined Jay-Z to build his multi-disciplinary entertainment company, Roc Nation, where she served as general counsel and executive vice president. She also served as Jay-Z’s entertainment attorney for seventeen years and Beyonce’s personal attorney for a year.

After a brief and successful stint at the company Superfly, JJ set out on her own and founded The Justice Dept. to allow her to invest her skills and resources in promoting gender equality across the entertainment business. She is also a founding advisory board member of USC’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative and sits on the board of Freeform, an organization devoted to tackling domestic violence.
