As Entertainment Attorney, I Look after Your Creative Needs

January 8th, 2014

What is an entertainment attorney?

An entertainment attorney is an attorney that serves the entertainment community. At Creative Law Network, we are entertainment attorneys that also specialize in law for the creative arts.  Entertainment attorneys represent actors, musicians, bands, production companies, dancers and artists.  We also represent chefs, managers, agents, publishers, distributors, clothing houses, product placement companies – any person or company that has a stake in the entertainment or creative industries.  Our entertainment attorney in Denver covers all of these professions, including non-profit organizations.  We function as the legal department for creative people and organizations throughout Denver.

Can’t I represent myself?

Of course you can… in the same way you can build your own house, launch your own five-star restaurant or design your own car.  All joking aside, yes you can act as your own entertainment attorney in Denver, but why would you want to?  As a creative, your focus is on your creative pursuits.  We are trained to prepare and negotiate contracts, protect your interests and advise you on legal matters as they pertain to your craft.  You could spend hours poring over long and complicated contracts, get tied up in tricky negotiations, or feel helpless if a studio or employer violates your rights.  Or you can rely on us, the Denver entertainment attorney specialists that have the skills and experience to fully manage the legal aspects of your career and business.  We are happy to work behind the scenes to help you succeed.

Where can I learn more?

A great place to learn more about entertainment lawyers and what they do is through HowStuffWorks.com.  Their article, How Entertainment Lawyers Work, goes into detail about the many different (and dare we say, fascinating!) aspects of what it takes for us to be entertainment attorneys in Denver.  The article mentions the Viacom/Google lawsuit, the Nas album fiasco, and the infamous writer’s strike, but also points out the more routine aspects of entertainment lawyer work, such as research, working with unions, and keeping the public interest in mind as well as our clients’ interests.

Why should I call Creative Law Network?

As our name implies, we are a different type of law firm.  We represent creative people and creative businesses.  Those in entertainment and/or creative fields face unique challenges; we know this because we have experience in these fields.  When you are looking for the best entertainment attorneys in Denver, you can have confidence in us.  We are here to help you because we passionately believe in what you do.  We want to represent you because we want you to focus your business so we can help you succeed.  From heavy metal bands to quaint cafés, from fashion houses to watercolor artists – Creative Law Network is the law firm that can represent them all.
