Creative Industries

Companies and people working in the creative sector face a unique set of challenges and opportunities – so they deserve a unique legal service.

Our creative industries team not only has a wealth of in-depth expertise on how the law affects the sector, we have a genuine understanding of how to tackle its challenges and make the most of its opportunities.

Whether advertising and design, PR, fashion, publishing, software, games, digital media, furniture design, architecture, film, television, music or the Arts, we can help a wide range of creative organisations deal confidently with a whole spectrum of issues.

Not only can we show you how to protect your work and get the most commercial value out of it, we can also help with the practical aspects of running a creative enterprise, from company formation and how to employ staff and engage freelancers, to rights clearances and licensing.

Being a Top 100 UK law firm offering a full range of legal services means we can also advise on things such as employment issues, property matters, attracting investor funding and buying and selling businesses.

Members of the creative industries team are actively involved in the sector, from working as consultants to creative organisations to serving as board members.

Many also regularly speak on their specialist topics at industry events and at universities and art colleges.
