Nigel Lipton

Nigel Lipton is a solicitor, law lecturer, writer, and occasional radio broadcaster. He has an unhealthy passion for all types of music (musically it is easier to list what he does not like than what he likes) and having reluctantly accepted at a very early age that he was not a great musician and would never see himself at the top of The Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, used his love of music with his love of the law to turn himself into a music lawyer.

Nigel is the author of the book Music: The Law and Music Contracts (originally published by CLT Professional Publishing). He has lectured in media, entertainment, and intellectual property law at various institutions, including Regents’ College in London (now Regents’ University) and The College of Law in London (now The University of Law), where he was a senior lecturer and branch head of the media, entertainment, and intellectual property law option on The Legal Practice Course.

Nigel has also written articles for the legal press, is co-author of Privacy and Personality Rights: Commercial Exploitation and Protection (Jordan Publishing) and has considerable broadcasting experience on both national and local radio.

Nigel teaches on our innovative BA (Hons) Music Business and Entrepreneurship programme.
