Protecting the rights of copyright owners in the  works they create.

We work with clients across all industries, drawing on our broad experience to help de-risk, secure, exploit and protect copyright works, performers and moral rights, and to obtain appropriate rights clearances. 

Our clients range from software and website developers, publishers, media production companies and marketing agencies, to musicians, artists, designers, architects, authors and photographers – and all those who wish to use their creative works. We work in the UK and internationally where needed.
