We are Clintons.

Clintons is an award winning boutique law firm, based in Covent Garden, Central London. It is a market leader in the entertainment, digital media and creative industries and is highly regarded for its family, litigation, property and corporate work.

What we do.

Clintons advises on all aspects of the protection and exploitation of brands, on and off line, contentious and non-contentious.

Our Clients include brand owners, high profile image rights holders (including sportspeople and other celebrated individuals), individuals active in the creative industries (including fashion and other designers), digital media specialists, advertising and PR agencies, fashion businesses, publishers, sports marketing and sponsorship consultants, direct marketing agencies, production houses, market research companies and merchandising businesses.

The firm has a thriving Trade Mark practice and is a registered representative at both the UK IPO and at the European Trade Mark registry in Alicante.

 

We have a highly regarded team of dedicated corporate and commercial lawyers working on transactions across a variety of sectors and with a particular focus on media, entertainment and digital technology.

We advise individual and business clients on the usual array of equity, business and lending transactions.

 

The firm’s clients are at the forefront of the creation, exploitation and delivery of interactive content. 

As a market leader in media and entertainment for more than 60 years, this work is at the heart of the firm's practice. The firm provides ground-breaking advice on the creation and use of digital content in music, film and television, branding, gambling, e-commerce, games apps and other software.

Clintons has extensive experience in dealing with employment law issues and prides itself on achieving amicable and fair resolutions.

The firm has considerable experience in providing clients with commercially sound and practical advice on all aspects of the legal relationship between the employer and employee. 

Clintons is one of the leading Family Law practices in the UK.

Our Family Law practitioners are recognised as experts in their field and have been involved in many of the leading family law cases over the last decade including the groundbreaking case of Parlour v Parlour.  The firm is well known for representing high profile and high net worth individuals but it also represents a wide range of people from all walks of life.

The firm’s film and television practice has grown exponentially since Kami Naghdi joined in 2014 and serves both international and UK clients in the sector.

We are best known for our expertise in complex rights transactions for both buyers and sellers and our ability to lead multi-party financing of audiovisual content. We work across all aspects of development, production, finance and exploitation of audiovisual content.

Clintons is one of the leading US and UK immigration legal advisors to the entertainment and creative world as well as to a broad spectrum of clients across other industries.

Diana Okoeva, an Attorney in New York and a Solicitor in England and Wales, heads the team, which has a wealth of expertise in all aspects of US and UK immigration and nationality law. The firm’s clients range from high profile artists, entertainers, creative and tech start-ups and individual entrepreneurs, crossing the Atlantic in one direction or the other, to multinational publicly listed companies moving personnel to their offices in the US or the UK.

Clintons has a formidable reputation in the area of litigation and dispute resolution and is the market leader for contentious entertainment and media work.

Our partners are eminent in this field and handle a full range of contentious issues, including the most complex and high-profile litigation.

Music is a fundamental part of Clintons' practice and has been since the firm’s foundation just over 60 years ago. 

Clintons has helped shape today's music industry through its clients, transactions and cases and is involved in many of the most forward thinking and innovative deals which are shaping the modern music industry.

We provide pragmatic, round-the-clock advice across the full range of privacy and reputation management issues.

The firm has helped shape and develop the law of privacy in the UK through its involvement in the ground breaking Court of Appeal decisions in Weller v Associated Newspapers Limited (following which tabloid newspapers are now required to pixilate photographs of children) and Gulati & Ors v MGN Limited (in which record damages were awarded to all eight of the representative claimants, including the firm’s client, Shane Richie, for misuse of private information arising out of the ongoing phone hacking scandal). 

Since 1955 Clintons has provided a comprehensive range of legal services to private clients, many of whom are in the public eye.

We help our clients organise their personal and business affairs in the most effective manner, often in conjunction with accountants and tax advisers, helping to ensure the protection and smooth succession of family wealth.

The firm acts for a wide range of private, commercial and institutional clients who value the team’s personal and proactive service and outstanding communication skills.

James Nethercot leads a team of sought-after property lawyers with exceptional expertise honed over many years in a busy central London practice.  The team members are frequently described as ‘safe pairs of hands’ – an invaluable quality in the fast paced transactional property market – and the property team enjoys a very high level of client loyalty. 

Clintons is one of the UK's leading suppliers of legal services to the sports world. The firm advises governing bodies, businesses and individuals active in sport.

The Sports Team’s clients include leading individuals from a wide range of sports, as well as international and domestic governing bodies, event organisers, brands, sponsors, licensed intermediaries, sports marketing and sponsorship consultants and sports equipment manufacturers.

 

Clintons is consistently ranked in the top tier of theatre law firms, acting for companies, individuals and organisations in all areas of the industry.

The firm’s team of specialist theatre lawyers is involved with productions worldwide, from the biggest West End musicals to new shows from first-time writers and producers.
