Making an Artist-Agent Agreement
Generally, the reason to draft an Artist-Agent Agreement is to record the terms and payment details for representation that will be provided. With the appropriate information, this essential legal contract may limit conflicts by ensuring that both signers are on the same page. Not just a generic agent agreement template, an Artist-Agent Contract under a Premium membership can be reinforced by optional Document Defense® support from an attorney.
Even if this isn't your full-time job, creating a record of any agreements with the client is key. This list of benefits may be helpful for you to know:

As you might expect from a contract like this, any Artist-Agent Agreement built with Rocket Lawyer will also contain the typical legal language with regard to the non-employment relationship, the protection of confidential information, liability for losses, and finally, dispute resolution. While making your contract, you'll also be able to designate the jurisdiction under which it will be governed. More custom alterations are permitted, if necessary.
Luckily, you won't have to start from scratch when putting your agreement in writing. With Rocket Lawyer, anyone should feel empowered to draft Artist-Agent Agreements online very easily. Your agreement will be assembled piece by piece, so you can be sure that it contains all of the appropriate information that you'll need. Normally, given the level of personalization, you could end up paying a traditional law firm fees in the hundreds of dollars, if not more.
When you've completed your document using Rocket Lawyer, you'll have the ability to review it on any device, anytime. With a Premium membership, you may edit it, print it out, save it as a Word or PDF document, make copies of it, and sign it electronically with RocketSign®. Attached to each Artist-Agent Agreement there is a checklist of tips to follow while finalizing your document. You should make sure to give a copy of your signed agreement to the artist.
Having someone review your contract might take longer than you would expect if you do it alone. An easier approach to consider is to go through Rocket Lawyer attorney services. Rocket Lawyer members can request guidance from an experienced lawyer or pose additional legal questions. As a business owner or operator, you can be confident that Rocket Lawyer is here to support you.
