"What Products And Services Does An Entertainment Lawyer Offer?" Towards A Comprehensive List Of All Entertainment Industry Contracts - Written By New York Entertainment Attorney John J. Tormey III, Esq.

This article is not intended to constitute, and does not constitute, legal advice with respect to your particular situation and fact pattern. Do secure counsel promptly, if you see any legal issue looming on the horizon which may affect your career or your rights. What applies in one context, may not apply to the next one. Make sure that you seek individualized legal advice as to any important matter pertaining to your career or your rights generally.

After entering my fourth decade in the practice of entertainment law as a New York media, arts, and entertainment attorney, I decided to compile and publish the following list of entertainment industry contracts. If you, the reader, need any assistance in the drafting, re-drafting, editing, negotiation, closure, or other handling of any of these entertainment contracts, then you are welcome to contact me, Attorney John J. Tormey III, Esq., at:
(212) 410-4142

All matters are handled by me, personally. I am admitted to practice law in New York, California, and the District of Columbia. Artist and entertainment matters originating from all seven continents of the world, including Antarctica, have presented themselves to my New York law practice.

My branch of the Tormey family has an eight-decade history in the entertainment business. My roots are in New York and Los Angeles. Five successive generations of my family have lived in or near the Yorkville neighborhood of the Upper East Side of Manhattan, in New York City. My father is an actor who worked as a child performer since the 1940's. Dad appeared on the Broadway stage by the 1960's, although he is now best-known for co-starring opposite Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker in Jim Jarmusch's film titled "Ghost Dog" (1999).

I grew up in midtown Manhattan and on tour with my father, and my mother, an actress and model, as of the 1960's, particularly with musical theatre, regional theatre, and summer stock productions. I worked lighting and tech for a number of these shows. I still assist my rock musician friends on tour, as a roadie, to this day. Growing up, my midtown neighbors included Walt Frazier, Jack Dempsey, Ken Boswell, Rusty Staub, Dave Marshall, and Jim Fregosi. My baseball camp coaches included Dick Howser, and my baseball camp teammates included Todd Stottlemyre.

I worked as a rock musician from the 1970's through the 1990's, as a guitarist and vocalist. I played in a band in high school, at Collegiate School on Manhattan's West Side, with John ("Jojo") Hermann, now keyboardist for "Widespread Panic". I played in a band in college, at Harvard University, with Tom Morello, formerly of "Rage Against The Machine" and "Audioslave", and now leader of "Prophets of Rage".

My whole life has been spent in entertainment, sports, media, and the arts generally, in association with many performers and companies in those fields. After attending what is considered by many to be the best entertainment law school, UCLA School of Law, I commenced the practice of entertainment law in 1987. Starting at Pryor, Cashman, Sherman & Flynn, I took successive positions as Counsel to The Walt Disney Company, and Senior Counsel and Senior Litigation Counsel to Miramax Films.

Recently I had occasion to carefully reflect upon the thousands of entertainment matters which I have handled since 1987. Those new to the entertainment industry, and even some with experience in the industry, sometimes wonder or ask, "What does an entertainment lawyer actually DO?". The answer generally breaks down into four separate categories of work:
(1) litigation;
(2) contracts; or "transactional and advisory work";
(3) creating companies and ventures; or "entity-creation"; and
(4) efforts to place artistic and literary material with professional entertainment industry recipients; or "project placement work".

I started my practice as a litigator back in 1987. I now principally handle categories (2), (3), and (4): that is, contracts, entity-creation, and project placement work.

Other lists of entertainment contracts appear on the Internet, and in print. The problem is that most of these lists are incomplete. Moreover, many of these lists are propagated by low-rent self-proclaimed forms-clearinghouses which actually disclaim all legal sanctity of their boilerplate. Therefore, in response, I have set out to draft the following all-inclusive list of entertainment contracts that can be handled by an entertainment professional. This list currently runs at almost 40 pages in length, and took me about one month to compile, in its first incarnation. The listed documents are those which I am unafraid to draft or otherwise handle for a client, and unafraid to stand behind once drafted or edited. The majority of these listed entertainment industry documents, I have witnessed in and through my own professional experience since 1987 and even prior.

You will note that, where appropriate, there is some overlap between the multiple items on the exhaustive list of entertainment contracts below. This is unavoidable, since different people and different companies often use different nomenclature to connote the self-same thing. As but one example, some always spell out the word "television", whereas others only use the abbreviation or acronym "TV". Accordingly, I list both permutations of document-title, so that those digitally-searching "TV" alone will not miss the listings. Additionally, you will note that a few of the entries may not be "contracts" per se, but other types of documents essential to the entertainment industry. My objective in marshalling, building, and compiling the below list of entertainment contracts, is to create an organic reference document for people and future generations to digitally-search and use. Naturally no use or re-publication of this list in toto or in substantial part, is expected without permission.

As this list of entertainment contracts is used and reviewed, and as technology continues to evolve, a number of items in the list will become obsolete, and other items will need to be added. At times, the types of entertainment contracts and documents, and their headings and captions, seem to be only limited by people’s imaginations – and entertainment is principally a business rooted in the human imagination, after all. As an overall matter, I expect this list to expand over time. If, after reviewing this below list of entertainment contracts, you feel strongly that certain items should be added or even deleted from this list, then I would be happy to hear from you, and I will consider modifying this comprehensive list accordingly.
