We are proud to offer training in all our specialist areas, including Copyright, Intellectual Property Rights, Licensing, Asset Exploitation, Information Law, Contract Law and Data Protection. Our training is practical, authoritative and always delivered in the context of current legal requirements, regulations and technological developments. We work in partnership with sectorial leaders such as BPP University and the Chartered Institute of Librarians and Information Professionals. We also offer our own selection of courses from An Introduction to Copyright, through to Data Protection Officer Training. We run public events, one-to-one learning, e-learning and full day tailored in-house training to best suit our clients’ needs.


Clearance is the process of securing all rights required to use third party content including photographs, archival content, images, audio and film footage. We have handled large collection sizes and are familiar with the complexities involved when clearing historic works such as layered rights or multiple consents. We specialise in the research and procurement of the necessary licences and rights and can help with any project from an article to mass digitisation.
