creative|legal lawyers are patrons of the arts and creative industries. Like you, we love it.

creative|legal was founded by Michael Tucak, the firm's director and principal lawyer, and is supported by a team of committed and experienced lawyers in Perth and Melbourne.

All creative|legal lawyers possess two key attributes.

In addition to a strong level of general legal knowledge, they are legally experienced in the arts and creative industries in which they operate, such as music, film and television or entrepreneurship and innovation. They also each bring important 'creative industries skill' beyond their legal skill, including academic qualifications in fields such as entrepreneurial business and arts management and have built on that training with hands on and direct work in these fields.

This means creative|legal lawyers also bring a deep understanding of both the industries in which they provide advice, and the needs and realities of their clients.

creative|legal lawyers regularly attend industry conferences and events to keep up to date with industry developments and trends, and gain a deeper understanding of client's work and the demands placed on it in a rapidly changing world. They are also regulars at arts and cutural events, enjoying the fruits of theirs and clients' labours, and keeping that all important 'work-life' balance.

creative|legal lawyers are committed to ongoing pro bono work, and both the firm and its lawyers are signatories to the National Legal Profession Pro Bono Target, and provide volunteer and pro bono services to the Arts Law Centre of Australia, and client or industry groups on a case by case basis.

creative|legal lawyers are also strong patrons of the arts and creative industries. It's why we do what we do - we love it.
