Believe in Yourself

The entertainment law industry of Hollywood


Los Angeles:  In this episode of the show we take you behind the scenes of the entertainment business into the back rooms.  Where there are deals to be made and contracts to sign, you will usually find an attorney. Though all members of the American Bar Association, you will learn what takes to be an attorney within the 21st century entertainment industry.

This legal practice is global because entertainment is global; and as a result, they use technology aggressively.

Thomas Garvin is the Senior (meaning the oldest) of the three partners. Thomas Garvin, Allen Davis and Linda Benjamin, all specialists in entertainment law;  they are global, connected, and current. The actors, composers, musicians, producers and agents who flow through the halls are confident of their work although in this office you find no law library. It is in cyberspace -- it's global, current, easier to access, and cheaper to store.

Giving and receiving - what happens in the exchange?

Understanding human relations is not easy. Libraries of books are still being written to figure it out. We create contracts and agreements to clarify expectations, but disappointments often follow. Gifts are a different story. Gifts that are freely given and graciously received seem to lift a relation to a higher level, perhaps even a deeper bonding. So although this is a season for gift giving and receiving, perhaps it would be good for all of us to find reasons, now and throughout the year, to give gifts to one another, to our communities, and even to our country.

What could happen? Try it and see. Everyday in every way your business should challenge you to be better . If not, you should find some inspiration right here.
