Why Influencers Need Legal Counsel.
Influencers are in the business of brand building and brand exposure. They should not strictly be concerned with the promotion of others; they must be cognizant of their own commercial opportunities and the legal exposure attached with the growth of their personas. Proactive influencers who hire legal counsel are able to protect themseleves in contractual agreements, construct a valuable intellectual property portfolio and build successful businesses around their positive influence.
