Businesses in the entertainment, technology and creative industries are increasingly seeing the benefits of having an in-house legal & business executive immersed in the business who always “gets it” and “gets stuff done”.
Ideally, that person will be experienced and knowledgeable about the business’ industry. If the person has connections locally and internationally from which the business can benefit, even better.
However, while most businesses see these benefits, many businesses would rather the flexibility of a “virtual” person than the overhead of full-time staff.

We were introduced to Damian by an American music industry colleague who told us that he is the best in the country – and he was right! Damian is without a doubt one of the most professional and caring lawyers we’ve ever had the privilege of working with.

Jumping into the music industry just being a music consumer, it is of fun and of challenge. I’m so delighted to have Damian Rinaldi of Sonic Lawyers alongside. Damian has tremendous experience in music-legal and he is able to explain the complications in detail but in a way which is easy for me to follow. This is efficiency and cost-effectiveness!!! Damian also carries sound and excellent business perspectives in structuring a music deal. Without Damian, I would not have grown so quickly in the music industry. Go to Damian whenever you have a music-legal question!!!
