Event law consulting

Are you an event organizer of musical, staged, or sporting events or other types of events and would you like to avoid legal risks in planning and executing your event? As an event organizer, artist, agent, service provider, advertising partner, or sponsor, are you currently being affected by legal problems and looking for a solution? As an artist or musical group, do you require support in reviewing and negotiating your contracts and in cooperating with collecting societies (e.g. GEMA, [German Society for Musical Performance and Mechanical Reproduction], GVL [German Collecting Society for Performance Rights]). Or are you a company and wish to have legal security regarding any claims from the artists' social insurance?

What we offer

For event organizers, we offer a comprehensive review of the legal situation, particularly regarding the copyright and contractual aspects of the event, its ability to receive approval, the feasibility of safety regulations, as well as other liability problems. We will indicate to you any potential risks in connection with the event and will work together with our client to find solutions for the avoidance thereof.

Our consulting services include all questions connected to sponsorship and advertising campaigns, naming and identifier measures, media exploitation measures, and strategies for preventing unauthorized use of the advertising value of the event by third parties (so-called ambush marketing).
