Structuring, Negotiating & Drafting Entertainment Contracts

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

Plus! Don’t miss the learn-by-doing Entertainment Contract Drafting Workshop.
Building on what you learn in the morning sessions, you will draft key clauses pertaining to an entertainment contract. This is a unique opportunity to receive individualized feedback on your own drafting skills from experienced entertainment lawyers. The feedback you receive will address such areas as:

  • How to organize and structure your agreement
  • How to identify key areas your agreement must address
  • How to anticipate issues that may arise in drafting

Note: Advance preparation is required.
