Contract negotiations for actors in motion picture and television roles involve many similar issues. We emphasize:
- Personal attention and interaction to gain a clear vision of how each client defines success, not only in financial terms but also in regard to maintaining artistic freedom and creative control
- Thorough analysis of our clients' key priorities in negotiating any agreement, such as obtaining fair royalty accounting and including options to exit or continue the relationship
- Ongoing education of our clients engaged in music and acting, better enabling them to protect their own interests and know when to call a lawyer
- Proven ability to effectively litigate disputes between musicians, actors, producers, production companies and other parties that enter into entertainment contracts
