Individuals: Most artists and/or individuals don't know what it is that entertainment lawyers do. A lot of other attorneys don't either. Typically, the entertainment lawyer consults on prospective agreements that may determine the artist or company's rights in a deal; reviews, revises, and/or drafts critical documents related to the artist or company's deals or projects; and learns the goals of the client and negotiates agreements' deal points to assist the client in achieving various goals in all aspects of the clients entertainment related legal affairs. The entertainment lawyer is the first and last line of defense against being taken advantage of when dealing with companies or other individuals in the entertainment industry. Moreover, the entertainment lawyer assists the client in ensuring the overall success of their entertainment career. Because artist and entrepreneurs in the entertainment industry typically aren't well versed in what various industry standards are, how to leverage their experience and/or talent, and would be better served to focus on their career and leave the legalities to their counsel entertainment attorneys are a vital peice of the artist management and success team.
