We take the heat – giving you distance and perspective.
Our Entertainment Lawyers are available to assist with all of your entertainment dispute resolution and litigation needs for analysing the factual and legal strengths and weaknesses of your position, to drafting the demand letter and negotiating a resolution, to representing you in mediation, arbitration or a court action and trial.
A letter that sets out your position on a dispute – the facts and applicable law – what you need to resolve the dispute and what you are prepared to do to get it.
From the first communication to the final judgement of an arbitrator or judge, negotiation of a fair and reasonable settlement is a constant and critical objective of any dispute resolution process.
An arbitrator or judge will decide a dispute, but a mediator can help the parties to see the strengths and weaknesses of their positions, to resolve the dispute themselves – sometimes even save the relationship.
Arbitration by an arbitrator or arbitration panel is the only available dispute resolution process in many entertainment industry agreements. It can be quick and cheap – and it’s always confidential.
The ultimate option to resolve a dispute – filing a claim or application with the court and asking a judge to decide the dispute, which typically follows a trial.
