Briffa’s services for the music industry include:
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.
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.
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.
Other Legal Considerations
Unlike other music law firms, we can also offer specialist advice on other aspects of your career that may not be directly music-related but directly impact you. For example, we can assist you in dealing with other industry professionals, such as graphic designers, photographers, videographers, choreographers and publicists.
We also advise on niche and constantly fluctuating areas of the law such as vlogging, the regulation of sponsored content on social media, and endorsement deals. Where required, we can carry out trade mark and domain name registrations and advise on the management and protection of your IP rights internationally.
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, street artist, dancer or photographer 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.
