Our Legal and Business Affairs teams are responsible for negotiating and drafting commercial deals and contracts on behalf of the business, providing commercial and legal support, as well as handling any disputes.
The team is involved at every stage in an artist's career, working with the A&R departments to negotiate recording, publishing, merchandising and management agreements. During an artist’s recording process they ensure contracts are in place with producers, re-mixers, musicians and vocalists as well as clearing any samples. Prior to and following the release of a single or album they work with the marketing and promotion departments negotiating and drafting deals relating to the production of promo videos, the design of cover artwork and logos, recording of live TV, radio and online sessions and festival appearances. Following release they oversee contracts dealing with compilation and synchronisation licenses, brand partnerships and the exploitation of artists’ catalogue recordings, as well as overseeing the legal aspects of Warner Music's business in the international territories.
