Houston Sports and Entertainment Lawyer

To be a good sports and entertainment attorney, a lawyer should have a background in business law, contract law, employment law, and intellectual property law. The reason for this is because the entertainment industry is a business and entertainers are professionals. If you need a Houston sports and entertainment lawyer, know that the entertainment attorneys at Thorsen Legal were all business lawyers first. As such, our attorneys know the business concepts that the entertainment industry shares with other industries as well as those unique issues that affect the entertainment industry alone.

Legal Risk for Entertainers

The entertainment industry is notorious for one sided contracts that work to the benefit of large entertainment companies at the expense of entertainers. Therefore, as an athlete or entertainer, you want to make sure that your Houston sports and entertainment attorney is well versed in contract law. The contracts you sign as an athlete or entertainer will determine the course of your career.

An entertainment attorney should be very familiar with intellectual property law. This is important because a celebrities’ brand, trademark, copyright, or image is their product. Additionally, celebrities have rights of publicity that need to be protected.

Our sports and entertainment legal team has experience in all such areas. We represent sports and entertainment clients such as athletes, musicians, actors, models, filmmakers, screenwriters, media companies, and producers.

Types of Entertainment Contracts

Much of the work of an entertainment lawyer is largely transaction based, i.e., drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts. However, the entertainment attorneys at Thorsen Legal can also assist with mediation, arbitration and litigation of entertainment law related claims.

We have represented clients in connection with a full range of issues facing celebrities, entertainers, and other entertainment industry professionals; including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Sponsorship Agreements
  • Marketing Agreements
  • Appearance Agreements
  • Copyright Filings and Disputes
  • Motion Picture Rights
