With a rich and diverse culture where creativity flourishes, the UK is a world leader in many creative arenas –especially music, staged events and fashion. At Stephens Scown we understand the imagination and originality that drives these sectors, and the unique legal needs that help them to continue to thrive and innovate.

We also know that to succeed, any creative venture has to exist in the commercial world and deal with its realities. That’s where our own talents can prove invaluable.  We’re a law firm with wide experience in acting for clients and contacts across creative sectors both in the UK and internationally.

Greater imagination and communication

Our team is passionate about creativity. We talk your language – and equally important, we can present legal issues and details in a plain speaking and easily understandable way. With in-depth legal and commercial acumen, our specialist team can also add value through introductions and deal brokering.
