lawyer fees

Is $250 hour reasonable for high quality music lawyer fees?

I had a free consultation with the lawyer. Like him a lot.

The first 2 agreements we are to pen are between my production company and first artist (est. 2.5 hours) and an agreement covering guest artists/and mix engineers (.75 hours).

Thus 3.25 hours = $812.50

Does this sound reasonable for getting these contracts done?

That's exactly what I was quoted yesterday, for someone with a creds list behind them.

It's reasonable but make sure you have a solid verbal agreement to the exact same terms with the artist so you don't end up with them getting their own lawyer who then runs up your legal bill.

Thank you. That's excellent advice.
