Legal entanglements are rarely enjoyable but working with Damian helps to lessen the angst, as he has a knack of cutting through the ‘noise’ and pinpointing the issue to enable quicker, and almost always, better outcomes. I have worked with Damian on many matters and admire his professionalism.

Damian’s deep understanding and knowledge of music copyrights and intellectual property have been incredibly valuable to me. His collaborative approach to finding a solution that works for both parties and his skills in dealing with complex negotiations is excellent.
award-winning composer and producer
With a rather keen eye for details and a brain that is not only commercially focused but carefully considers counterparty impacts, I would not hesitate for a second in recommending Damian and his services to others. In fact, I haven’t hesitated, and he has been my go-to referral for all aspects legal.
