The Benefits
Ensure it’s a fair

What services are offered by LawTrades entertainment attorneys?

Our top entertainment lawyers can do it all. They can advise on strategic and business planning as well as all legal matters for small and mid-size entertainment industry businesses and freelancers. Also, our attorneys can draft, negotiate and administer all contracts governing development, production, intellectual property, financing, and distribution. The attorneys can also help with pre- and post-production licensing and ancillary distribution deals for media products as well as resolve outstanding legal and contractual disputes to help avoid costly litigation.

Can I just hire a regular attorney to help me?

You could, but it pays to have an expert to assist you. Our entertainment lawyers have many years of experience practicing in entertainment law. Between reviewing and drafting contracts, negotiating deals, acquisitions and licensing, as well as protecting various intellectual property, our lawyers know what to look for when it comes to the entertainment world.

Which states do you have entertainment lawyers in?

Although most of our entertainment lawyers call New York and California home, they usually can help clients in all states and some countries.

What is a copyright?

Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States that gives certain exclusive rights to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software and architecture, and certain other intellectual works, whether published or unpublished. Registering a copyright establishes a public record, which can help prove ownership and is required if you ever need a copyright lawyer to sue for copyright infringement. When a work contains a valid copyright notice, an infringer cannot claim in court that s/he wasn’t aware the work was copyrighted.

“Simple and trustworthy system. The project manager through text message is a good idea and helps a lot with the process, especially their timely response.”

“I was very comfortable with the environment it was my first meeting and I knew it was on the right track I did understand my lawyer I was listening I did absorb the information given to me.”

“Great experience all around, LawTrades was just so much more personal and much better than other startup/online on-demand solutions for legal work,. Almost feels like I handpicked and hired the attorney myself. The Attorney was available to answer questions by phone or text message, so was the LawTrades rep who set the whole thing up. And when setting up new entities you always have questions, so this was a big deal for me. The Attorney assigned to my project was available on demand to help out explain things every step of the way and I think the guys at LawTrades have done a great job with making you feel extremely comfortable. After all was done I even got an email and a call from one of the co founders of the company to make sure I had a seamless experience. I never got a call from other companies I had used in the past like Legal zoom and the whole thing always felt so automated. Yes, granted Legal zoom probably have way more clients than Lawtrades and as such would not be feasible for their management to call everyone, however, that was a nice touch which I do appreciate. I will definitely be heading back to Lawtrades whenever I require legal assistance.”

“Price. I know what I am paying instead of getting surprised. Transparent pricing I know what each bit costs instead of getting a big bill and not knowing what parts cost what and how much was for service vs hard fees such as filing fees. Also things progressed rapidly.”

Yash, P. | ★★★★★

“Amazing service, i cant get over texting to get a lawyer. it’s revolutionary and can legitimately improve the US justice system for people with no access to quality lawyers.”

Janet, S. | ★★★★★

“Quick and easy, I used LawTrades and worked with attorney Jonathan Hood to review a NDA. I got my questions answered right away. Arman was a great help making the connection. Would highly recommend the service.”
