About
My experience spans a broad range of legal issues that concern artists and entertainers, and the businesses that support them. Types of deals I routinely handle include recording and publishing agreements for musicians and songwriters, intellectual property licensing, influencer agreements, on-camera talent agreements, corporate brand activations, talent sponsorships and endorsements, venue and booking contracts, and employment agreements for professionals working in the entertainment industries.

"Farrah negotiated the agreement between me (I am a music producer) and an artist signed to a major record label. She made sure I was being compensated fairly and that my rights to royalties were protected. She also explained a lot of areas of music industry that I did not understand, including how my publishing royalties work (which is very confusing). I would definitely recommend her to any producer or creative individual out there."

""Farrah was great throughout the process of negotiating my employment contract. She took the time to educate me on the legalese, and I strongly believe her wise negotiation tactics secured me the extra perks and salary bump I was looking for.""
