Entertainment lawyers provide services to the entertainment industry, including film, music, television, theater, publishing, visual arts, and multimedia. They also represent sports stars and other celebrities. Entertainment lawyers negotiate and write contracts, deal with intellectual property issues, and practice employment and labor law. For example, entertainment lawyers negotiate and document film stars' compensation, musicians' recording contracts, and authors' publication deals, as well as movie distribution and rights. If you are an entertainer planning to package your talent for profit, an entertainment lawyer will help you navigate the trade.
