NEXT LEVEL STRATEGY SESSIONS

These sessions are designed to provide you with a personalized path and best chance at success in the entertainment industry. Let the Firm’s experience help you take your career to the “next level”.

CONTRACT REVIEW

You never want to put your “autograph” on any entertainment industry contract without having it reviewed by a professional. Let the Firm review your contract, and explain to you what is missing and what shouldn’t be in there, so that you don’t wind up another cautionary tale.

CONTRACT DRAFTING

It is always a good idea to get agreements in writing, especially in the entertainment business. Let the Firm draft an agreement customized to your situation, so that your career in the entertainment industry can run smoothly without any unnecessary confusion or confrontations down the road.

CONTRACT NEGOTIATION

You need a strong advocate if you are going to get the most out of your career or business. Let the Firm fight for your rights in your contract negotiations, so that you don’t get taken advantage of and wind up getting the short end of the stick.
