REHKATSCH Att­or­neys at Law


We sup­port you

We advi­se you on band foun­da­ti­ons, con­trac­ting with record com­pa­nies, nego­tia­ti­ons with manage­ment as well as on ques­ti­ons con­cer­ning the pro­tec­tion of your own songs. This includes ques­ti­ons about copy­right and ancil­la­ry copy­right law, the artists’ social insu­rance fund as well as name, trade­mark and com­pe­ti­ti­on law. For exam­p­le, we can help you cover an old clas­sic, do your own online explo­ita­ti­on, mer­chan­di­sing, or sign a publi­shing, boo­king, per­for­mance, stu­dio musi­ci­an or pro­mo­ti­on con­tract.


We advi­se com­po­sers and lyri­cists on their coope­ra­ti­on with the coll­ec­ting socie­ties GEMA and GVL, e.g. on work regis­tra­ti­ons, reviews of royal­ty state­ments or gene­ral mem­ber­ship issues. We can also assist you in dis­pu­tes or nego­tia­ti­ons with music publishers, for exam­p­le in the area of film and adver­ti­sing music or the estab­lish­ment of an edi­ti­on.


In the recor­ding indus­try we advi­se free­lan­cers, trades­men, small and medi­um-sized enter­pri­ses. We sup­port you in the estab­lish­ment of part­ner­ships and cor­po­ra­ti­ons, their trans­for­ma­ti­on as well as in the hiring of free­lan­ce or per­ma­nent employees.

In the ope­ra­tio­nal busi­ness, we help you with all rele­vant con­tracts such as artist, pro­duc­tion, title, band take­over, dis­tri­bu­ti­on or publi­shing con­tracts. We sup­port you in foun­ding your own music publi­shing com­pa­ny or label as well as in clo­sing a dis­tri­bu­ti­on deal.

For events, tours or con­cert series, we advi­se you on the neces­sa­ry per­mits, agree­ments with the coll­ec­ting socie­ties and even cate­ring or mer­chan­di­sing con­tracts.

We sup­port you in the explo­ita­ti­on of licen­ses as well as in the estab­lish­ment of brands or artists. We place par­ti­cu­lar empha­sis on the inter­face with other indus­tries for a uni­form mar­ke­ting chain as well as a long-term and com­pre­hen­si­ve stra­tegy for the eva­lua­ti­on of your usa­ge rights.

In the event of legal inf­rin­ge­ments, we will assist you in enfor­cing and pro­tec­ting your own rights as well as in defen­ding third-par­ty claims.
