Swan Turton offers expert legal advice on all aspects of theatre work including advising on copyright and the negotiation of contracts for rights acquisition, development, funding, production and licensing and other exploitation of plays and subsidiary rights, both in the UK and overseas.

Our lawyers act for producers, investors and theatre owners as well as playwrights, directors, composers, lyricists and other creative team members.

The firm’s strength across all areas of music, film & TV and digital media enables us to call upon the experience of our other practice groups to provide a truly comprehensive service to our theatre clients, in an entertainment industry which continues to converge.  That strength also means that we are particularly well placed to advise producers of musical theatrical productions.
