We are specialists in digital media, and are confident that due to the unique type of commercial law practised by the solicitor at PAIL, and our professional network, that we are an influential part of the development of digital media in the UK. Additionally we provide traditional music industry advice. We can assist you whether you are signing artists for an individual release (Album/EP) or looking to sign an agreement with them encompassing all of their works.
Even in a traditional field like litigation specialist knowledge in a particular sector can make a difference in the outcome of a dispute. Whether a contracting party is refusing to perform its obligations under a contract, or a rival business is copying your website or passing themselves off as you, we can assist you.
Our specialisation in internet related law means that we have actual experience in litigating these cases. Based on our past experience we can advise you on avoiding some of the pitfalls for an unprepared litigant in this field of law. We have brought proceedings against several Internet trolls, and have dealt with a number of cases involving business and professional rivals.
PAIL® specialises in digital media. So whether you are planning to distribute online through various channels such as Bandcamp and/or music aggregators like Tunecore, or, you are ready to set up a music publishing business, we have the expertise. We work specifically with downloads and are routinely drafting licenses to reproduce music sound recording in the form of downloads, streaming including downloads from cloud services on all devices. As digital media lawyers we work with the continually evolving digital files, and continually evolving digital music platforms.
As well as our internet bent, we offer traditional legal advice on all types of open source and proprietary technology contracts including but not limited to patent and copyright related contracts, software licensing agreements, software copyright licence contracts, infringement of copyright in software claims, software maintenance agreements, technology outsourcing agreements, offshoring contracts, technology escrow agreements, developer contributor agreements, open source contributor agreements, and network integration agreements.
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

Peter is a dream to work with. His costs are fair, communication excellent and responsiveness flawless. I am most satisfied with the settlement which Peter negotiated on our behalf and I would recommend him without hesitation.
Peter manages to combine great approachability with the production of speedy, clear and accurate advice at a reasonable cost. These attributes combined are, I think, rather rare for a lawyer!
Peter was very good at delivering new terms and conditions for one of our brands, he delivered on time and on budget. Would recommend!
Peter is a very smart lawyer who is able to thnk outside the box. He has a thorough understanding of internet commerce and law.
I greatly enjoyed working with Peter. I particularly appreciated his deep understanding of the internet – both the technology and its legal considerations. With this knowledge he was always quick to identify the legal issues in our business plans and to provide clear advice on how to address those issues.
