Writers and Independent Publishers

WE REPRESENT WRITERS AND INDEPENDENT PUBLISHERS

Hrbek Law represents novelists, screenplay writers, playwrights, non-fiction writers, journalists and other writers in the legal aspects of their careers.  We advise the independent publishing companies who are stepping into the shoes of major publishing houses and helping writers distribute their work across media platforms.

Book Contracts
Publishing Agreements
Merchandizing Deals
Digital and Multimedia Distribution Deals
Literary Agent Contracts
Adaptation Agreements
Option / Literary Purchase Agreements
Ghostwriter Agreements

We advise on:

Privacy Rights
Defamation
