Surely, the business attorney who organized your company (if that even happened) can handle this, right? Wrong. Entertainment Law has its own lingo, its own case law and is pretty much a foreign language if you don’t know it. As a label, you should strive for a deal that at the very least gives your company recognition so that you can build your brand.
Also, you have to know the industry numbers to figure out if you are even being offered a deal that will ever make you any money. Do you think that a huge, multi-national corporation will not try to take advantage of your position? Think David and Goliath here; you are toast if you sign the contract without having an Entertainment Attorney review it first.
