As digital media lawyers we work with the continually evolving digital applications, and digital entertainment platforms. Additionally we provide traditional music, fashion and television industry advice. We offer conventional legal advice to the modelling and fashion industry. We regularly write terms and conditions for fashion retail and auction websites, fashion related commercial contracts, and negotiate advances for new faces that are looking to break the London market. Our focus on digital means we always take a 360 degree approach to all our media and entertainment projects.
