Client Testimonial

“It was really hard to find a solicitor specialising in intellectual property so Briffa stood out immediately. I was very impressed with the speed of response from them and arranged a telephone call with Joshua the next day. Joshua spent half an hour with me on the phone giving me some very specific, very detailed legal advice and it was clear he was highly experienced in the unique area of work I was asking about (copyright of songs). He took the time to listen to the background of the story and advised on the next steps to take. He was very reassuring. He then kindly followed up with an email summary. Based on this short experience, I’d feel very comfortable using Briffa if I needed further help… and will do so if it comes to that (hopefully it doesn’t!). Thanks Joshua..”

How Can We Help?

Our legal services for the music industry include:

Music Disputes

Despite your best efforts, sometimes things just go wrong. Whether you have fallen out with your manager, suspect your label is not paying royalties at the agreed rate or have found that another artist or producer is copying your work, we can help you enforce your rights and find a solution.

Contract Negotiation and Advice

Whether you are an artist who has been offered a record deal, a band thinking about hiring a manager or a brand looking to licence a song for your next marketing campaign, we can guide you through the entire process from start to finish and ensure that your contracts are robust and fair for all parties.

Whatever the deal you are about to sign, come to us for advice first to ensure you are getting the terms that are right for you.

Collaboration Assistance

Creating and promoting great music, putting on a memorable show, hiring a publicist, commissioning artists, photographers, videographers, designers… Music is a collaborative effort involving many talented individuals.

Unlike other music law firms we can also offer specialist advice on aspects of your career that may not be directly music-related but still directly impact you.

New Media

The creative landscape is constantly evolving. Are you protected in niche or fast moving environments like online video, sponsored social media content or endorsement deals?

Our specialist IP lawyers can carry out trade mark and domain name registrations and advise on the management and protection of your IP rights internationally for all of your artistic works.

Protecting Your Other Artistic Work

More and more artists are active in more than one area of the arts. If you are an author, actor, model, dancer or professional creative of any kind in addition to being a musician, it is important that you take legal advice from someone with experience in those industries.

Our expertise spans various media and entertainment industries, including art, TV, film, fashion and design — we are always there to advise and assist, no matter which part of your creativity you need to protect.
