Artists’ Legal Advice Services (ALAS)
Eb Reinbergs sits on the board as Chair of the Artists’ Legal Advice Services (“ALAS”). ALAS lawyers provide free summary legal advice to artists living in Ontario, Canada helping artists, actors, musicians, dancers, writers, and filmmakers address their legal problems. Issues typically dealt with include contracts, defamation, copyright, trademarks & royalties or other payments.
ALAS is operated by a collection of lawyers and volunteer law students who generously donate their time to help provide advice to those who may not be able to access more expensive alternatives. The clinic serves as an excellent first-step for creators wishing to understand their legal rights or deal with specific problems, but are unsure how to proceed.
Appointments consist of 30-minute consultations during which a lawyer will listen to your concerns and provide advice or guidance aimed at addressing your legal problems.
