Other Litigation

We can also handle arbitration, mediation, and litigation cases involving:

  • soundtrack producers suing their distributors
  • former trademark owners being sued by their trademark buyers
  • joint copyright owners being sued by their co-owners
  • recording artists being sued by their bandmates
  • recording artists being sued by their bandmates
  • recording artists being sued by their record labels
  • music publishers being sued by their songwriters
  • copyright and trademark litigation.

If you are an actor, model, musician, actress, filmmaker, reality TV show star or other talent, and contemplating signing an agency agreement, make sure you have your contract reviewed so you know what you are agreeing to.

In many contracts there will be a phrase that says "you agree you have had the right to have legal counsel to review this contract."  This clause is there, basically, so you don't try to complain later that you did not know what you are signing.  We offer a low flat rate fee for $495 (for contracts less than 5 pages), and we can review and advise you on what you are signing, and make recommendations for contractual terms and clauses that would benefit you.  We have seen so many poorly written agreements, so before you LOCK YOURSELF into a 1-3 year exclusive agency agreement, have us review your proposed agreement.  Call us at (877) 276-5084.
