Over the past few decades, the South African creative sector has grown into a thriving industry where musicians, artists, designers, photographers and filmmakers have turned their talents into professions. This progression did not happen by chance – it’s come about as a result of serious artists investing time and effort into the business behind their art, as well as into the art itself.

Legalese offers a spectrum of legal services to musicians, creatives and creative agencies, management agencies, record labels, and anyone else dealing with artistic performance, intellectual property, or advertising. Whether you need contracts drafted, guidance on publishing deals, or just a chat over coffee to bounce around an idea, we strip away the incomprehensible legalese and talk to you in a language you can understand, at a price that you can afford. This innovative approach has allowed us to grow into one of the leading entertainment law firms in South Africa.
