Whether it’s breaking a new deal, getting signed, or a dispute over an existing agreement - we have specialist music lawyers who have been there and done it before.

Legal issues are an unwelcome distraction for anyone involved in making, promoting and selling music.

We work with bands, individual artists, managers, promoters, distributors, agents and recording labels to deal with any legal issue relating to the music industry.

More than legal advisers, we are immersed in the music industry. We have the contacts to get the deal done, and the expertise to protect and maximise our clients’ commercial interests.

IP / copyright

We represent household and up and coming name clients in connection with their musical creativity.

Music disputes

We have also handled high-value disputes involving promoters and artists.

Drafting music contracts

Don’t underestimate the importance of getting this right. Protect your interests now and it may save you a lot of hassle – and expense – later.
