Details about our legal services for individuals

Creative Individuals

Yes it's true. We provide specialist advice to all sorts of creative individuals. Not just writers, musicians and painters, but other people who work in the cultural, heritage and charity sectors. From our offices in Manchester and London we can work with you to review or create contracts, tackle employment issues, intellectual property cases and lots more legal concerns. We also work alongside our colleagues on financial, tax and other business related consultancy matters. We don't spend our time chasing ambulances, instead we try our best to deal with your project effectively and efficiently, with the minimum of hassle. Our work is insured and regulated in accordance with the Solicitors Regulation Authority to provide you with extra peace of mind - and at a fixed fee we can normally agree up front.

More details appear below. If you prefer to speak to a specialist solicitor for easy-to-understand legal information you can rely on, please contact us.
