Anyone who has attained success in the music industry learns quickly that it is a complex business. Record companies require multiple layers of legal expertise, from incorporation and entity selection through trademark, copyright, employment and contractual matters.

Successful bands must also structure their business entities and relationships with appropriate employment policies and procedures. Contracts such as record, publishing, management, merchandise, producer, agency, touring and endorsement agreements must be negotiated. Intellectual property such as songs and albums must be properly protected.
