Making a Talent Contract

  • What is 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.

  • Does a talent manager need to create a Talent Agent Contract for each new client?

    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:

    • Neither party is surprised by how long the agreement lasts
    • The agent and artist both understand their responsibilities
    • Payment-related information is clearly defined

    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.

  • What details should my contract for talent managment contain?

    To complete your Talent Contract with Rocket Lawyer, you'll need to have the following details:

    • The name and address of your client
    • How payment will be made
    • What the duration of the relationship is
    • What tasks you will be responsible for

    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.

  • How can I find a talent management contract template online for free?

    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.

    If you've got any questions or hesitations about the process, talk to a lawyer today. Also feel free to browse our full repository of documents for small business owners and operators.

  • What should I do once I have made a Talent Contract?

    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.

  • How do I have my Talent Contract checked by a lawyer?

    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.
