Fashion, Entertainment & Sports
Hantman & Associate is particularly knowledgeable and experienced in the legal and contractual problems that face the fashion industry, particularly as it involves modeling agencies, such as IMG, New York Models, LA Models, APM, Karins, Visages, Vue Photos Reps, Art Department, and Oliver Piro.
The firm also represents, or has represented, bookers, agents, and principals of many of the major modeling agencies. The firm not only prepares, reviews, and negotiates contracts regarding all contractual aspects of the business, such as contracts between the agency and models, bookers and the agency, and the agency and third parties, but perhaps, more importantly, handles litigation involving the interpretation, enforceability, and breaches of these contracts.
Hantman & Associates also specializes in resolving or litigating issues that arise when bookers and/or models leave one agency for another. The firm has been successful in recouping all advances and damages occasioned by this type of “defection” and/or defending against these types of actions that are all too common in the fashion industry.
