From a layman’s perspective, a musician’s work seems simple; compose the music, write the lyrics, record, produce, and release. But the reality is different. A musician’s life is tough, and it’s not just because of all the touring and the physical exertions.
Legal hassles have been part and parcel of the music industry through the years, and it’s not just musicians who have to bear their brunt. Producers, record label executives, and managers too are often caught in the line of legal fire, and such situations demand legal representation that is second to none.
