Excellent negotiation in the music industry is a vital tool for performers. Mintaka has developed this skill over nearly 40 years that combines specialist industry legal knowledge with a realistic valuation of both parties’ expectations. Of course this means we have many useful contacts.

Recording Agreements, Publishing Agreements, Management, Agency and Event Agreements – the music business is built on these contracts.

Our skills were learned in the 70’s and 80’s, polished in the 90’s and have become almost second nature today.

During a part of our history, we were hired as label managers with a four year goal to prepare the label for sale. This entailed acquiring the copyrights in existing productions, make higher profile new artist copyright agreements and some years later selling the package.

So we have been both poacher and gamekeeper and hope we bring appropriate experience to the benefit of both sides.
