A Lawyer's Perspective on Fees

Webinars ~ Legal Series
Hosted By:
Shep Rosenman - Partner, RLG LLP

A lot goes into a successful career in Tinseltown. You have to be able to write, pitch, network, and adapt to a whole host of changing circumstances. There is no one sure-fire path to success, and there is any number of potential deals and contracts you might be presented with throughout your career.

While you should always consult with an attorney before signing any contract, having a baseline understanding of what fees and payouts are standard and fair can help you go into a negotiation feeling confident. 

Join Roadmap favorite Shep Rosenman for this special webinar event to learn this and more! 

This 90-Minute Webinar Will Cover

  •  The potential range of fees 
  • The WGA standard 
  • Fees for rewrites 

Please note, the information discussed in this webinar is for general education purposes only. If you have specific issues or questions, we encourage you to speak with an entertainment attorney about your particular case.
