Attorney Ray Richards, Michigan Attorney Advises on Sports and Entertainment Law Issues
Firm provides strong representation for contract and licensing matters
Possessing great athletic or artistic talent is a tremendous gift, but without knowledgeable legal support, you might not be able to earn or keep the rewards you are entitled to. At Richards & Associates, PLLC in Troy, I am an accomplished attorney who assists musicians, actors, sports stars and other talented individuals throughout the Detroit area. Having practiced law in Michigan for nearly 20 years, I have a strong reputation for protecting the rights of my clients; I’m known for going the extra mile to provide exceptional representation and service. Dishonest people and companies often prey on people seeking to achieve the careers of their dreams. Whether you require help with contracts, licensing or any other entertainment business matter, I, Ray E. Richards II, will be a steadfast defender of your rights and interests.
Skilled lawyer delivers trustworthy support for clients in the Detroit area
I assist a diverse group of men and women in the sports and entertainment industries and am deeply committed to their success. My firm offers a free initial consultation and provides sound legal guidance on matters including:
- Licensing deals — I will explain how you can use your talent and image to establish mutually beneficial relationships with businesses. My firm develops and reviews licensing agreements to promote your brand as well as your partner’s.
- Contract negotiation — To protect yourself, you need a detailed legal analysis of any contract prior to signing it. I will clearly outline each side’s rights and obligations so that you are not subject to negative surprises down the road. During negotiations, my representation enables you to negotiate from a position of strength.
- Royalties — Music companies, publishers and others frequently fail to forward legally required payments to artist and writers. My firm can establish favorable agreements and keep a close watch to ensure that you receive everything you’re entitled to.
Even if you or your child is just starting out in the sports or entertainment field, capable legal advice is important. Often, early agreements have long-term negative consequences. I can ensure that you are not pressured into an unfair deal.
