Business affairs: An Insider's Guide to Today's Music Biz: 7 Record Labels

Once your A&R rep has identified an act to sign, you’ll need to make a deal. So you’ll hire a lawyer to represent you and the label will have a staff of folks to represent the label. This is the in house legal team for the label and make no mistake about whose side they are on. They are the ones who negotiate the deal points of your contract for the record company.
