The Theatre team provides help with all legal aspects of theatre productions and their commercialization. The team also fields questions about copyright, music rights, performing rights, labour law and independent contractors. The team can help draw up contract templates or draft tailor-made contracts for individual productions. The team is equipped to deal with rights clearance effectively, not least when a production is to be made available online, including on social media, and when the music is to be released.
The team has long experience of serving the theatre industry, including the staging of plays, revues, musicals, ballet, opera or other stage productions. The team specializes in copyright, labour law and contracts, is familiar with relevant pay scales and collective agreements in the field, and can help maximize the exploitation of a theatre production’s commercial potential.
