Media & IP Law

We act for a broad roster of clients in the entertainment world, ranging from professional musicians, songwriters, actors and television production companies to independent record producers, music publishers, artists’ managers and booking agents. We provide commercial solutions and will, if requested, conduct the often complex negotiations that allow financial interests and creative talent to combine. As the boundaries of the media and entertainment world are extended to include satellite broadcasting and the internet, as well as DVDs, ringtones and software, we have developed our expertise to protect clients’ interests whilst ensuring that their talents and resources are carefully nurtured and sympathetically developed.
