Nigel is an experienced commercial lawyer and advises on intellectual property. His work covers both contentious and non-contentious matters. He focuses on digital media/technology sectors and advises companies on the acquisition, production and securitisation of copyright assets including ‘fingerprint’ tech companies which track and report royalty income.
Because of the increasing complexity of copyright, Nigel set up a team to investigate copyright asset royalty income flows worldwide to promote transparent and accurate accounting. The team can identify issues which impact these assets and the accurate reporting of royalty income. He also works closely with the Corporate and Finance teams to service investor clients seeking to acquire copyright assets.
Nigel was previously a senior in-house Counsel for a number of multinational companies such as London Records (PolyGram), Virgin Records and Picture Music International, a division of EMI Records.
Nigel set up his own law firm in 1998 and his associate offices are located in New York.
