Whether you are a creator or an entertainment company, a music attorney is an essential part of your team. In today’s music industry, many artists are choosing to forego traditional record deals in favor of forming their own companies and self-releasing their music. A music attorney can be a useful guide through that process, as well as through the process of pursuing a traditional record or publishing deal.
