A Note to Artists: The Value of Expert Music Attorneys
A primary focus of our firm's representation is to advise and counsel clients about legal aspects of the entertainment industry and how to navigate the tricky waters associated with doing business in the industry. Common responsibilities of our entertainment lawyers will be to draft and negotiate contracts for clients with third parties, such as record and publishing companies, managers, booking agents and producers. Our media attorneys also will prepare IP registrations, and advise clients on artist management and development matters (like goal focus, helping choose managers or record companies, common pitfalls and career matters).
Horror stories about artists signing bad deals are common in the industry. Our job as entertainment attorneys is to help clients to avoid these kinds of mistakes. Our entertainment and music attorneys will advise you and protect your interests before you sign any agreements with industry professionals or record labels. We make sure clients understand the contract, and that the contract is up to industry standards. In other words, our media attorney’s main objectives are to do everything we can to make sure you enter into a fair agreement and that we help you avoid common legal pitfalls in the industry.
But we go above and beyond that here at Amplify. Our industry knowledge provides proactive strategic advice to clients and we help them leverage our industry connections. In addition to our entertainment industry attorneys providing general legal advice and negotiation skills, we are valuable members of your team. A good entertainment attorney should also have in their repertoire, the ability to be your business advisor and your personal “rainmaker” - at Amplify we do that.
