The éclat Arts & Entertainment practice team is here for the creatives in our community and the individuals and organizations that support and promote them. Our goal is for the artist who we counsel to have successful and rewarding careers. Having the advice of specialists in arts and entertainment law is critical to ensure the protection of their creative expressions.
While the creative element provides a focus area, our approach is much more comprehensive. From the business owner perspective, we help clients with their strategic plans whether an artist on how to launch a professional career, the formation of a production company and agreements with their creative team, or a museum on complying with operational regulations.
COMMON ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT NEEDS
In the visual arts, much of what we do is an educational process to help all the players – artists, collectors and dealers – understand the value of using contracts to define expectations and avoid litigation. Whether it is the contract between an artist and a gallery where the dealer is acting as a fiduciary for the artist; a collector who purchases a work of art and needs documentation to have it authenticated for future sales; or a company that wants to commission a unique piece for its corporate headquarters.
In the entertainment industry, a knowledgeable attorney is imperative to navigate the various contracts needed for media publications and production. Further, the rights to the creative product need to be clearly defined to protect the ownership of the valuable asset. Our team is also experienced in handling general business matters including business formation and operations, employment and facilities management.
Some of the most common needs of our Arts & Entertainment clients involve:
· Artist Contracts for consignments, commissions, sales
· Gallery representation
· Copyrights and trademarks
· Licensing agreements
· Collector contracts for purchase and sale
· Museum donation and loan agreements
· Insurance counseling and coverage analysis
· Entity formation, transition, and dissolution
· Contract negotiation and review
