Expertly taking care of the law & the business of creativity.

Art & Design

Creative Law & Business’s talented client base includes those who work using more traditional art and design techniques - such as fine art, illustration, knitting, felt modelling graphic and jewellery design - while others are working at the cutting-edge of interactive and digital experiences.

We also advise leading galleries and online retailers on their dealings with artists and customers. We assist in formalising agreements for art exhibitions, representation contracts and commissions for art editions and advice regarding Artist Resale Rights. 

With our work in this sector, we have been involved in advising leading street artists on monetising their work and have satisfactorily resolved or extricated conceptual artist clients alleged to have infringed third party copyrights or Trade Marks.

We have advised on contracts and IP for leading art and music exhibitions at Somerset House.

In all of these art and design-related dealings, expert advice and guidance are required relating to IP ownership and formalising agreements made contractually: CL&B provides just that.
