Our experts in all aspects of Event Industry Law are lawyers who specialise in assisting parties who are active in the event industry, both nationally and internationally, including trade associations.

Our specialists assist clients prior to, during and after the event. This may involve providing advice and support during contract negotiations or identifying risks prior to the event. Adjustment of the contract or prevention/ mitigation of risks that emerge during the event. Assistance when there are disputes after the event.

In our work, we do not lose sight of the commercial interests of our clients.
