DASbusiness for Musicians Legal Expense Insurance Program

Most recently, Christopher worked with DAS Canada to develop and launch a unique Legal Expense Insurance Policy for the Canadian Music Community including Performers, Songwriters, Composers and Musicians that offers:

  • Unlimited Telephone Legal Advice 7 days a week from 8 am to 12 midnight
  • Legal Defence for alleged criminal offenses including the Highway Traffic Act
  • Contract Dispute and Debt Recovery support for goods and services bought or sold
  • Tax Audit and Tax Appeal support and preparation
All coverage subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions of the DASbusiness for Musicians policy.

Why? Because Christopher knows from first hand experience that:

Situations can and do arise unexpectedly in the Music Business!
How would you and your band benefit from...

Unlimited Telephone Legal Advice

  • A band would like some legal advice about a contract that is being offered to them.
  • A band member wants some legal advice on a "distracted driver" ticket he received while on tour in Alberta.

Contract Disputes and Debt Recovery

  • A self-employed musician has a contract with a venue stating that he will receive a specific percentage of revenue from the show. The venue does not pay him the appropriate amount and the musician wants to take legal action.
  • A group wins "Battle of the Bands" and is told they will receive recording time with a well-known Artist, however the Artist is now refusing his services.
  • A band purchases sound equipment that does not work to the standard that was promised. The manufacturer refuses to repair the equipment.

Legal Defence

  • A band is playing in a bar when a fight breaks out. A band member jumps into the fray and is charged with assault.
  • The Tour Manager on tour with a band is driving in another province and receives a speeding ticket that he wants to fight.

Tax Protection

  • An Artist has received a notice of a Tax Audit.

Having a DASbusiness for Musicians Policy gives you a 1-800 number to call for help with problems like these 7 days a week for 1 year, for less than the cost of 1 hour of a Lawyer's time! It's like a CAA card for legal problems!
