Entertainment and Sports Law
It can be exciting to get attention for your creative work or tempting to invest time and capital into an evolving artist or film. However, don’t become a cautionary tale. Every agreement concerning entertainment services should be carefully planned and in writing. DIY Form agreements you might find online might not necessarily meet your circumstances or provide the protection you need. The experienced attorneys at Sodoma Law can help new and seasoned artists review and revise form agreements; or, we can prepare a contract that is specifically tailored to your needs. Our attorneys can help you artfully negotiate the terms that might be included in such a contract to help balance your short-term growth goals, as well as your long-range plan for a successful future in the entertainment business.
