Legal Tips for Entertainers and Musicians
It is an exciting time when a musician or actor breaks into the business. But often I see a client who is inexperienced with the ins and outs. Getting everything ironed out behind the scenes is just as important as the work you may do on set or on stage. I am passionate about representing clients through this process — clients who have an artistic passion they want to pursue instead of being weighed down by legal headaches.
Contracts and Endorsements
Professional athletes and members of the entertainment industry are routinely asked to sign endorsement deals and other binding agreements. A well-created contract is critical to secure their personal image and their financial security.
I prepare and negotiate employment contracts in South San Francisco and throughout California. I fight hard to obtain fair compensation while ensuring the terms and conditions within the contract do not limit your professional future.
When the other party of a contract breaches the agreement, you can feel confident that I will fight to protect your rights in court. I offer personalized counsel to help you understand your rights and aggressively pursue a just outcome on your behalf.
Your Name. Your Image.
Due to the high-profile nature of their careers, members of the sports and entertainment industries receive offers for sponsorship or endorsement deals. When these contracts are not crafted well, significant issues can occur that threaten you financially and legally. These may include:
- One party being able to cancel the deal early
- Incorrect payment provisions that fail to adequately compensate you
- A one-sided agreement that takes advantage of you
It is important to analyze the terms, conditions, and confidentiality of any contract carefully. When you partner with me, I work with you one-on-one. I closely review every detail of your contract to ensure you are receiving fair payment while protecting your image and likeness.
From here on out, you do not have to analyze and asses any contract or agreement on your own. I am a fierce advocate for athletes, actors, musicians, and other entertainers who need to fight back against unfair contracts.
