Contract Negotiations

Entertainment Industry Contracts

Contracts are a basic tool used in all business arrangements, including the business end of the entertainment industry. Whether you are a musician, actor, director, producer, writer, professional athlete, or other artist or craftsman or a representative of a production company, studio, or other business entity which is connected to this industry, you will inevitably be involved in contract negotiations. Negotiating the terms of a contract is a vital activity in which each side must work out their differences to come to an acceptable agreement. Contracts provide legal protections for the parties involved, delineating their rights and responsibilities and how disputes may be remedied should they arise. A contract needs to clarify all of the necessary terms, arrangements, and possibilities that may occur during its duration. Generally breaches of contract may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or through courtroom litigation, where damages which are usually in the form of monetary compensation are sought by the aggrieved party.

Having an experienced entertainment lawyer representing you in a contract negotiation is highly recommended.
