Expertly taking care of the law & the business of creativity.
We are familiar with deal structures and issues facing music festivals, having advised organisers and land owners dealing with talent agreements, concession deals, sponsorship, licensing, site agreements, bar services agreements, ticketing contracts and postponement issues caused by force majeure
We represent promoters and live agents formalising deals on their behalf and taking care of issues that often ensue.
CL&B advise clients who promote gigs by tribute bands and also impresarios creating touring theatrical shows paying homage to iconic artists.
Advice is frequently given to a leading provider of event management services and security solutions
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 e-sports, and concerts in the metaverse.
Also, each year, CL&B sponsors and Dean programmes the music stage at St Ann’s Well Gardens Spring Festival in Hove, a much loved free family festival, showcasing the skills of some of the extraordinary music talent we represent.

As an independent film production company we constantly require legal advice plus we prefer a hands on approach when it comes to dealing with documents and contract advice. Creative Law has always been approachable, understanding and have stood by us through everything in a very professional way. Negotiations can mean a very difficult and stressful time, but Dean at Creative Law would calm things down and not exacerbate them by giving clear advice on the right responses to make. The service provided is one you can trust to defend your interests in the best way possible that I cannot recommend enough.
