If you've been offered a music business agreement - whether that's a publishing agreement, a music manager contract, a recording contract or a different corner of the music industry - it’s important to make sure that what you’re signing up to is in your best interests.

The MU will get a specialist solicitor to take a look at the contract, check it works for you, and provide practical advice and guidance to help you negotiate better terms.

MU members can access the Contract Advisory Service at no extra cost – granting up to an hour of our specialist solicitor’s time on any music contract.

To make use of this service, please contact the MU.
