We have provided legal representation to musicians and bands, recording studios, film companies, models and modeling agencies, authors, publishers, artists, actors and dancers and have assisted with the negotiation of individual performer and production contracts. More recently, our lawyers have been incorporating their knowledge of Employment Law to the entertainment industry and have acted as counsel to several high profile radio personalities with respect to various employment and contractual issues.
