Music Management: Advising Your Client on Hiring the Best Music Manager
About this Program
For attorneys representing musical artists, it is crucial to not only know how to negotiate a management contract, but also to provide competent advice in choosing a great manager. A well-chosen manager will make the best careers decisions, be supportive, and will have the artist’s best interests in mind. Join entertainment attorney Stacy Lynch in this CLE program that will teach attorneys how to provide sound advice to clients on choosing the best music managers for their careers. Ms. Lynch begins by explaining the primary responsibilities of music managers and how to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. She also walks through the important terms and conditions that must be addressed in management agreements and points out clauses that should be avoided at all costs. Ms. Lynch provides many fun references to popular artists (Kanye West, Nine-Inch Nails, and more) that makes this both an entertaining and educational lecture for entertainment lawyers nationwide.

Interesting subject matter, very informative.
Great presenter. Obvious she is passionate what she does and her experience shows with her discussion.
