When you advise clients in the entertainment industry, your success is contingent on your ability to structure, negotiate and draft effective contracts. Whether it’s a licensing agreement or a talent agreement, it is crucial that you have the skills, knowledge and insight needed to construct an agreement which meets your client’s needs and interests.

Join leading entertainment lawyers as they drill down on the key aspects of entertainment contracts. Experts will cover:

  • Key negotiation strategies and techniques
  • Best practices for drafting clearer contracts
  • Understanding and using boilerplate clauses
  • What you need to know about contracting with minors
  • Assignment clauses (the why, what and how)

While this program was developed primarily for lawyers practicing in the entertainment field, it will be of significant value to any professional in the industry whose responsibilities include negotiating and reviewing agreements.
