Our Creative Industry Law Expertise

Our creative industry law solicitors combine a broad range of legal expertise and can support you with:


Contracts and Creative Rights Management 

To get things done, creative people and organisations often need to partner up with collaborators and engage with their public through venues, traditional and new media. Contracts lie at the heart of all these relationships. Our Commercial Contracts team can help you navigate these contracts so that you are able to achieve clear outcomes which meet your objectives.

Our intellectual property lawyers can advise you on IP protection and exploitation of your rights in your creative output, and securing rights from partners, consultants and contractors.


Charities and Charity Law 

Many arts organisations adopt charitable status and our nationally renowned charity law solicitors advise charitable arts clients on a day to day basis - on everything from incorporation to governance, trading and fundraising.


Data Protection and Privacy Laws 

We know that the data you collect is a key asset, and managing customer data properly is essential for building trust with your client base. We provide our clients in the creative field with data protection legal services such as audits, template policies and procedures (including fair processing statements and document retention policies) and data sharing agreements. We can also provide essential support in the event of a data protection breach, complaint or subject access request.


Managing Personal Assets 

If you are involved in producing creative works, in order to secure the full benefit of the exploitation of those works, and manage your rights into the future, you can obtain expert advice from our private client team, whose lawyers are highly experienced in advising on tax and estate planning.


Regulation and Entertainment Licensing 

For those who manage or use venues or need advice on licensing of venues or entertainment activities, our licensing solicitors can help you ensure that you have the rights, permissions and approvals for your events to go ahead smoothly, safely and in accordance with the law.


A Full Service, National Law Firm 

We are a full service commercial law firm with offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham. We pride ourselves on providing a first class legal service to creative businesses and organisations, with transparency on fees and competitive rates.
