Media & Entertainment

The South Coast has a terrific music, media and entertainment community. Emerging and established artists flock here, but until recently seeing a specialist Music Lawyer meant taking the London train. We decided to abolish that inconvenience and have established a highly respected music, media and entertainment law team that has great industry connections and operates from offices in Brighton and Portsmouth.

Our clients include well-known international artists and companies, in music, film, digital, theatre, TV and publishing, and we have a great name for nurturing and representing the best emerging talent.

If you are looking for an industry Lawyer who will invest in your future, create opportunities, get the best deal for you and stay with you for the long haul, please get in touch.
