Who needs Legal Advice?

    Hey everyone,

    I've just finished training as a paralegal and I think of providing an advice service for actors.

    It would be great to hear what everyone has the most trouble with...

    Theatre/Screen Contracts? Agent contracts? Employment rights? NDAs? Intellectual property rights? Buyouts? Health and Safety? etc.

    Hoping to create some online content for actors to cover the most widely complained about points.

    That’s a great idea. Congrats on completing your training! Contracts... I’ve been caught out before and signed something that later had repercussions, so any advice on signing agreements and contracts would be very welcome.

    Congrats lovely, what a greta career move!

    I think a lot of actors need more info on buyouts and usage - I'm shocked at how many don't know what global perpetuity means. Also agent percentages, because they vary from office to office at least knowing what they are responsible for and what they take would be helpful.

    Or non payment of jobs, which unfortunately I’m going through at the moment.
