Friends and Colleagues:

We wanted to send you this email in response to a flurry of attention one of our recent cases has elicited.

In Mario Solis v. James E. Blancarte, a recent case before the California Labor Commission, Raines Feldman LLP successfully represented the petitioner in voiding a contract alleged by his former counsel. Many of you may have heard about this case or may have concerns regarding its implications. While this case does not present a change in the law regarding negotiations by talent lawyers, it does highlight the potential pitfalls to talent lawyers under established law.

We must stress that there are some simple and specific steps that talent representatives can take to avoid the result reached in Solis under the current law. As we have thoroughly examined and successfully advocated these issues, we are more than happy to address any general or specific concerns you may have.

Please call us and we would be more than happy to discuss.
