Artist Representation

Description: Artist representation.

HOH client: Photographer

Key issues: Settle agency claims, negotiate new portable representation contract.

A photographer’s agent was severing ties with one agency and moving to another. Although the agent and photographer had a prior business relationship, the agency pressed its rights to retain her as a client and threatened to sue. With the assistance of Holm & O’Hara LLP, the parties reached a settlement that was satisfactory to all of them. We also helped to negotiate a contract with the second agency that permits the photographer and agent to continue working together regardless of agency affiliation. Our work helped preserve a valued relationship, guard against millions of dollars in potential liability and protect important income streams.
