The music industry is one of the most exciting, but also one of the most challenging and rapidly evolving sectors in the commercial world.
With a particular shift in focus towards the digital world, there are more options and opportunities available to both artists and songwriters than ever before, as well as to consumers, who now have access to the full global repertoire of music at the touch of a button. Besides simply creating great music, it is vital in this ever-more competitive industry for its players to be as informed, agile, and innovative as they can be to have the greatest chance of success.
At Keypoint Law, our music lawyers have proven track records of advising a diverse range of artists, songwriters, musicians, producers, managers, and businesses. Our team has represented those just starting out on their journey in the sector, to some of the most established names in the world of music, and our firm’s emphasis on providing an expert, commercial, flexible, and personal service sees those clients returning time and time again.
Our music services cover the whole sector, but we are particularly experienced in advising clients on the commercialisation of their work, the exploitation of new opportunities, the protection of their intellectual property and contractual rights, and in all aspects of dispute resolution.
Our team of experienced lawyers includes:
- Nick Weaser, who represents a formidable global roster of emerging and established artists, songwriters, producers, and other music industry creatives, and is recognised by the world’s leading legal directory, Legal 500TM (2021 and 2022 editions), as an ‘expert adviser to the music and wider entertainment industry’ and by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) Stars 2022 as a Notable Practitioner.
