Taking care of the legal & commercial side of creativity.

Live Events

We are familiar with deal structures and issues facing music festivals, having advised clients dealing with talent agreements, concession deals, sponsorship, licensing, site agreements, ticketing contracts and postponement issues caused by the pandemic


We represent promoters of gigs by tribute bands and clients creating touring theatrical shows paying homage to iconic artists.

For many years Dean has advised event organisers in the Trade Show business, contracting with attendees, exhibitors, speakers and sponsors.

In recent times we have advised promotors of live-streamed events, VR concerts and shows in the metaverse.


Also, each year, Creative Law & Business sponsor and Dean programmes the music stage at St Ann’s Well Gardens Spring Festival in Hove, a much loved free family festival, showcase the skills of some of the extraordinary music talent we represent.
