Why does it feel so good? After a complex negotiation taking many months it did indeed feel good to receive from our client Cristiano Spiller a 12” vinyl copy of the re-release of seminal floor filler Groovejet on Defected Records, previously unavailable due to copyright issues - Sophie Ellis-Bextor
Lovely to see this feature on our esteemed client photographer Dean Chalkley's breakthrough moment featured in Creative Review. Dean discusses his approach, in which the photography isn’t just reflecting something - the collaboration informs the result, “money is a short term motivator. If you can look back and like what you’ve created and feel energised about it, then that’s worth more”
Wise words

Thursday 23rd September

2:30pm in Theatre 3 @ The Brighton i360

We will be exploring the evolving nature of the management relationship and debating some moot points regarding management contracts. Specifically we will provide expert guidance regarding commission entitlement, commission rates and basis of calculation, including post term, in what’s known as the sunset period.
Dean was thrilled to be invited by our friends at Wired Sussex to participate in the forthcoming 5G festival at the Fusebox. The topic: Beyond the Livestream. What is the Future of Online Gigs?

Congratulations to our good friends and long standing clients Cr2 Records on the modern full service distribution deal we negotiated for them with Believe Digital. Its a ground breaking deal tailored specifically for a record label at the frontier of global dance music.
It’s been quite a while since we were able to hold an actual contact signing session at the office, so it was a particular pleasure to celebrate with our good friends and lovely people Tobin and suzi pka Prinzhorn Dance School extending their long term relationship with seminal NY label DFA Records. Naturally the new Creative Law & Business contract signing pens were utilised, lights on!
They were many reasons to be cheerful advising the Thames Group of Artists on intellectual property matters for The All Kinds Of Naughty Exhibition which celebrates Ian Drury's extraordinary life and wonderful lyrics, currently on tour.

Shine a light. As the end of lockdown approaches, we are looking forward to resuming in person celebratory contract signing sessions, in place of anticlimactic Docusigning.
