Sports & Entertainment Law
Sports and entertainment law is more than just fancy agency arrangements and tour buses. More often than not, it involves the licensing and protection of rights.
If you are in a band, it might be beneficial to organize the band as a limited liability company for liability protection or to raise capital. If you are promoting a series of sporting engagements or concert performances, it may be necessary to prepare documents to support your promises for sponsorship rights. If you own an entertainment product and wish to license it, you need to ensure that you provide enough but limited access to your material so that your ownership is protected. If you have a great idea for a film and need to raise money to fund it, you most likely need to set up both an entity and prepare documents to provide information on your film and its expected audience and receipts. We can help with agreements and filings for each of these scenarios and, in some cases, can suggest additional contacts for you to consider for the purposes of obtaining distribution.
