Marketing & Endorsements
There are several kinds of contracts for professional athletes and entertainers. They may be for long-term employment and commitment, or for only one performance, or the endorsement of a single product. But in every case, how much the client will be paid for his or her talents is just one of many factors to be considered.
The basic contract is a contract for personal services, and it must be written so that the terms are fair, and the client is not bound by unreasonable limits or restrictions on his or her personal or professional life. For a professional athlete or performer, the keys to success are to gain public exposure and to maintain a good public image. Some clients lose opportunities for exposure because their representatives pushed too hard for more money. Others suffer harm to their reputations because their advisors failed to take proper steps to protect their image.
