Music Law

Contract terms, advances, royalties? The music business is underpinned by a seemingly complex and often baffling set of rights and notions.

This session will see music lawyer Richard Hoare provide an overview of the most essential concepts and theory – with real-world examples of how they apply in practice, giving you the tools and confidence to better understand the modern music business.

Richard is a music lawyer with over 15 years of experience. Previously a partner at leading music law firm Clintons, he now runs Hoare Associates, a unique, new-model legal consultancy based in Somerset, which focuses on advising a select roster of exceptional artists, and forward-thinking music businesses.

Outside of work and family, his spare time is devoted to music – as a director of an 800 capacity community run music venue in Somerset; collector and DJ of old 45rpm records; founding board member of the Association For Electronic Music; trustee of a charity which runs choirs for homeless people; and most recently (after a 20 year break) slowly trying to learn to play the piano properly.
