Nice things our clients say about us

Dean Marsh has worked with me since the start up of my company Alphadog Mgmt. Dean goes beyond the duties of just legal.  His knowledge of the music industry and contact list are endless. Facing some of the toughest challenges musically, Dean has been at my side through all the Battles and all the greatest of Highs. My team here at Alphadog would be incomplete without Creative law. Thanking dean and his team for his on going services. They say there is no 'I' in team... I say there is no 'I' without Dean.
