Our Services - Recording | Bray & Krais | Specialist Media and Entertainment Lawyers


There are many different types of arrangement that can apply to the creation and distribution of an artist’s recordings.  We advise on all these different aspects including traditional artist agreements, "360" deals and the artist "DIY" approach (and hybrids of both).  We also advise artists and financiers alike on the securitisation of rights and income streams and help to place artists with appropriate record companies or investment companies.

We are ideally placed to provide legal services in relation to the entire production process, including hire of a studio, engagement of a producer and engineer, and manufacture and distribution of recordings.

We also have significant experience around the digital space including digital distributors and online marketing companies.

Additionally, we advise in relation to sales of catalogues, securitisation and licensing.
