Client Case Studies

Shopping agreement for TV production

Our legal team reviewed and negotiated a financing agreement. The shopping agreement was between a production manager and two producers. One of the producers wrote a real-life story that served as the basis for the production.

Capturing the terms of the production manager's compensation was important. We drafted the contract to protect the royalties and rights of integrity of our client.

Disclaimer for nutrition and fitness App

We have worked with famous influencers. Our entertainment lawyers prepared a disclaimer for a fitness and nutrition App.

Our entertainment law firm ensured that users were aware that our client was not a professional nutritionist. The disclaimer protected the influencer from liability and ensured the terms of use were transparent.

Producer agreement

Our production lawyer drafted a producer agreement. The producer agreement addressed the acceptance and refusal of performances.

We dealt with the producer's right to compensation, the obligations of the performer and the requirements of performance venues.

Influencer agreement

We have helped influencers and brands with influencer agreements. These contracts dealt with the rights and obligations of entertainment professionals. These artists included actresses, influencers and other content creators.

Unfortunately (despite all the positive reviews) our experience with Prosper was extremely disappointing and I have fed this back to the firm. We had one of our lead-in consults with an Associate Lawyer at Prosper on Tue 21.11.23 (15mins) and in LESS THAN 2 days we accepted Prosper's contract/terms, only to be told "we do not have the capacity to take on this matter". We were instead told, "you can use the “Find A Solicitor” function on the Queensland Law Society website to find a lawyer”. During this period there had been no change to the content/scenario regarding the matter whatsoever. It made the whole interaction with Prosper frustrating and unrewarding for us personally.
