Our services are designed to help artists, content curators and creative stakeholders make informed decisions with respect to their work.
We aim to achieve this by providing support that can take the form of creating well-articulated contracts, reviewing or renegotiating terms, helping you protect your work, and facilitating workshops or courses to coach the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.
contracts & negotiations
Contracts are indispensable to modern day business, particularly the entertainment business and its subsets including the music business, the movie business, and the design industry. Whether it’s creating a system of agreements, or making sure you are being offered the best terms, we provide you with the necessary skills and market know-how to help you make the right choices.
We offer customisable solutions and packages to address your needs.
Being in the business of creating content and intellectual property, you might find yourself being exposed to the threats of plagiarism, copying, and misappropriation.
Whether you are building content or a brand, we offer you the ability to protect your hard work, through copyright and trademark registrations, facilitated by our trusted partner.
We understand that your need for good counsel, may not always fit the traditional parameters of engaging with a consultant.
Enter 'Capsule Consulting', a unique service where we provide you with the opportunity to consult with us for a specific two-week period, adopting an approach that is equal parts economical and efficient.
We offer specialised consulting on issues related to music law, copyright law, contracts, illustration and design related law, digital rights, and other facets of the entertainment business as well as creative businesses.

Our workshops and knowledge sessions are designed to be interactive learning experiences, filled with contextually relevant case studies and anecdotes. We also have experience designing and conceptualising short courses for students and young creative professionals.
