If you are serious about your career and your band then you already know that your music is a business. Like any business, serious thought should be put into how you are going to run your business. And like any prudent business owner, you allow specialists to help run your business in areas where you are unfamiliar, have no expertise or do not have the time to do yourself. After all, creating and performing music is what you really want to do and what you should be concentrating on.
Hiring an attorney can help your band in many ways. Besides freeing up your time to be creative, lawyers can help with setting up the proper business structure for your band, handle contract negotiation and litigation, advise your band on how to avoid future litigation and liability, create trademark and copyright protection for your band name, songs, logo and artwork, help to license your music so that you can make money from it and so much more.
