Nick has extensive experience representing clients in the Australian music industry, as well as in the UK, Europe and United States.

We’re delighted Nick has joined us”.
Speaking about his appointment, Nick Weaser stated:
“Experiencing the cutting-edge Keystone Law model in the UK, my clients are delighted with the bespoke and flexible service that I am able to provide.
