#4. Don’t just hire any attorney to represent you
Now that negotiation are under way with the label or record company, or publishing company wanting to offer you a contract you so much desire, it’s time to get an attorney or lawyer to act on your behalf.
It should be pointed out that when all is said and done, the negotiation usual tend to be left to the attorney or lawyer to sort out the finer details, the musician is never present at this stage. The musician’s attorney or lawyer and the label or record company, or publisher’s attorney or lawyer will meet, talk over the phone, email, text, or use fax to make their offer and counter offer until they reach an acceptable conclusion. So my advice to you would be to use someone that specialises in music matters with a proven record in this business is a must, and absolute necessity for any serious musician who wishes to fight the good fight in the legal arena.
