We have wide and long experience in advising and assisting on the law as it relates to the world of classical music


Music as a cultural artefact is of course also an economic asset involving the creating, performing, publishing, distributing and collective management of music and the international trade that flourishes in the sale and acquisition of instruments, their maintenance and restoration and disputes as to their ownership, provenance and attribution. The law therefore touches music in relation to:

  •       Copyright

  •       Publishing

  •       Employment

  •       Business

  •       Charity/Education

  •       Disputes

Phillips Lewis Smith are able to advise and assist in relation to all these areas and please contact in the first instance Makoto Nakata on 027 0925 2244 or email makoto.nakata@plslex.com for a conversation concerning any music law matters that you might wish to talk about.
