Making a Talent Contract
As an agent, you can make and sign Talent Contracts to protect your business when you are offering representation to artists. As a result of forming this agreement with each other, you and the other party will be more likely to have the same expectations. When you build your Talent Agent Contract on Rocket Lawyer, you will have the option to activate Document Defense®, which allows an attorney to help you get paid or otherwise enforce your rights.
Regardless of what type of performer or entertainer you represent, having a record of your commitments to those hiring you is key. The following list of benefits may help to inform your decision to use one:
Without this document, you might suffer one or more of the following consequences: delayed delivery, challenges collecting payment, unmet standards of quality, unrealistic expectations, and, unfortunately, very little legal recourse when a problem arises.
To complete your Talent Contract with Rocket Lawyer, you'll need to have the following details:
As you might expect, Talent Contracts that you build using Rocket Lawyer also contain the standard legal language regarding the non-employer relationship between the parties, the protection of private information, and dispute resolution. During the process of building your agreement, you'll also have the ability to choose its state of jurisdiction. With the Rocket Lawyer document tool, you have the power to implement additional personalized editing, as necessary.
The good news is you don't have to reinvent the wheel to put your agreement in writing. When using Rocket Lawyer, any agent is able to make Talent Contracts with ease. Your agreement will be assembled piece by piece, as you enter more information along the way. Typically, for this level of personalization, you might ultimately end up paying a conventional law firm fees in the hundreds of dollars, if not more.
Alongside your Talent Contract, you'll find a series of next steps you can take after the document is completed. With a Rocket Lawyer membership, you will be able to make edits, print, add signatures remotely using RocketSign®, download, or copy it as needed. Finally, make sure that all signers get a copy of your fully executed agreement.
If you opt to try it on your own, seeking out a legal professional to give feedback on contracts could be relatively time-intensive. Some lawyers will not even agree to review contracts that they didn't write. If an attorney does offer to give advice about your contract, they most likely would still demand their standard fees to do it. An easier route is via the Rocket Lawyer On Call® network of attorneys. As a Premium member, you can have your documents evaluated by an attorney with experience in business. Whether you create another Talent Agreement or other legal documents for agents, Rocket Lawyer is here to help.
