How do I hire the best entertainment attorney
in Florida and when do I need one? I’m Steve Kramer. I’m a Florida entertainment and intellectual
property attorney. Entertainment attorneys deal with a variety of issues. One of the
most important issues they deal with are contracts. And contracts are key because they might determine
your entire career as an athlete, as a musician, as an actor — in any field of entertainment.
And what you’re looking for, what you probably want, is somebody who’s excellent at drafting,
reviewing and picking apart contracts. But that’s only one part of the puzzle. The other
thing that you need is somebody that is a tough negotiator. You want somebody who not
only is going to negotiate aggressively for you but you probably want somebody who’s willing
to think outside the box. And that’s why it’s important when dealing with an entertainment
or sports attorney to find somebody who’s creative. Because a lot of time there’s value
and there’s money left on the table that some attorneys might miss. Another thing you need
is you need someone who’s familiar with the industry, somebody who’s worked in it before.
You know, personally you know, I worked in entertainment. I grew up in entertainment
and I worked in entertainment before I was an attorney. You know, I utilize those skills
in representing people in entertainment and in sports. And that’s something that you may
want to look for when you’re trying to find an attorney. Because you want somebody who’s
been there, who’s been in the trenches, who understands every aspect — 360, the whole
deal in your business. So if you have questions about entertainment or sports law or pretty
much anything else, give me a call. I’d be glad to talk to you any time. You know, we
deal with this and all types of legal issues. That’s why we’re one firm for life. And what
we find is a lot of times these issues fit together. Thanks for watching, I’m Steve Kramer.
