The Career Success Podcast w/ Irving David & Jason Connolly

A very insightful episode from the country “go-to” lawyer for all legal matters pertaining to both Classical and Contemporary Dance, Irving David.

Irving read law at the London School of Economics and subsequently trained with the leading London entertainment law firm, Wright & Webb. After qualifying as a solicitor, he joined Warner Brothers in London, rising to become their UK Director of Legal and Business Affairs.

Irving returned to private practice and together with a colleague, Vivian Wineman, formed David Wineman which, in 2008, merged to become DWFM Beckman.

Earlier this year, a new chapter opened in Irving’s professional career when he joined Level, a premier London law firm exclusively focused on media, entertainment, technology and sport.

As a music and entertainment lawyer, Irving has built up an impressive roster of clients in the music, entertainment and media industries over the years and offers extensive knowledge of Commercial Law and Intellectual Property Rights including Copyright, Trademarks and Product Licensing.

Irving also has a passion for Ballet and is considered to be the “go to” lawyer for all legal matters pertaining to both Classical and Contemporary Dance. His client roster ranges from a broad selection of independent record labels and music publishers to countless singer songwriters, managers and agents. His corporate clients include Birmingham Royal Ballet, One Dance UK, the Frederick Ashton Foundation, Viviana Durante Company, The Harvey Goldsmith Group of Companies, and the International Artist Managers’ Association.

Irving is a director of SBT Trading (the trading arm of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust) advising it on Commercial Law, Intellectual Property and Product Licensing matters; a corporate member of IAMA providing its membership with a legal helpline; and a full voting member of BAFTA, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
