Leveraging Your Position

In order to get the most out of contract negotiations, your attorney must capitalize upon the advantages and strengths of you, the client. Without fully understanding the position of the client, for example, an attorney may push “too hard” for more money and, in the process, negatively impact the negotiations and the client’s future relationship with “the other side.” When entering into contract negotiations, Mr. Chase, Mr. Bloom, and Mr. Epstein always consider the following factors:

  • Did the record label or producer seek you out after an audition? Or did you seek them out?
  • How successful or well-known are you already?
  • Are there other professionals being considered by the other side?
  • Are you hoping to be rediscovered?
  • Does the record label, producer, film company, or team need you to revamp its image?
  • Did the other side already tell you how much it is willing to pay?
