latest news



Swan Turton LLP 's music practice is based on the experience and reputation of Julian Turton and Julian Bentley. The client base is wide ranging. It includes major and independent record companies, music publishers, artists, composers, managers, producers, merchandisers and digital media companies.

Our depth of knowledge and progressive culture enables us to advise not just the newest aspiring artist or entrepreneur but also to undertake the most sophisticated and complex transactions and disputes. We provide both strategic and commercial advice on all business aspects of our clients' activities.

The availability of other specialists within the firm enables us to assemble at short notice dedicated multidisciplinary teams for specific jobs. Our work has an increasingly international flavour: we represent clients whose interests lie entirely outside the UK, using our knowledge of overseas markets. We have been advising companies who are at the forefront of digital exploitation of recorded music and have particular specialist expertise in this field.
