Personal Injury Law
WORKING WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES WITHOUT A LAWYER COULD COST YOU.
How Do I Know If I Need an Entertainment Lawyer?
If you’re involved in the entertainment industry (or want to sue someone who is) you may want to hire an entertainment lawyer if:
- You’re entering into or negotiating terms of a contract
- Someone else has violated a contract
- Someone stole your intellectual property
- You’re figuring out publication or distribution rights
- You’re being sued for any of the above
If you’re at all confused about your rights or obligations, an entertainment lawyer will be able to advise you and point you in the right direction.
How Much Does an Entertainment Lawyer Cost?
Entertainment lawyers use different methods of billing for different services. Many attorneys charge an hourly rate for court representation, advisement, and document creation and review. Some also use flat rates as well. Contingency rates are also used, either when your lawyer thinks you have a strong case and you’re asking for compensation, or for long term representation. For long term representation a lawyer will generally charge a percentage of your earnings, though only if you have a steady income. The rate you pay will vary depending on the complexity of your needs and where you live. Be sure to talk about the billing structure your attorney uses before entering into any agreements.
