A KENDAL law firm has been chosen to provide legal support for a series of Rod Stewart concerts next year.

Harrison Drury has been retained to advise concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor on its contractual agreement with the global star, as well as deals with individual venues and ticketing company Ticketline.

Members of the firm’s corporate team have been working closely with Cuffe and Taylor on its plans to stage concerts at three English venues, including Blackpool, in June.

David Filmer, associate solicitor at Harrison Drury, said: “Cuffe and Taylor is a fast growing business that is striking deals with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry to promote concerts attended by thousands of people. It’s vital for such businesses to have robust contracts in place to protect them in all eventualities. We’re excited to be helping the company stage concerts with one of Britain’s most famous stars and recognisable voices.”

Director Peter Taylor said: “We decided to use Harrison Drury as our legal advisers for this tour due to their excellent local reputation. We are extremely pleased how the firm has dealt with the lengthy negotiations involved in such a complex agreement across multiple bespoke venues.”

The tour will see him perform songs from his 29th and latest hit album, Time – an autobiographical work.

Cuffe and Taylor was established in Blackpool in 2009 by Peter Taylor and Daniel Cuffe and the duo were instrumental in persuading opera superstar Lesley Garrett to appear at the Lytham Proms in 2010.

The business has since brought some of classical music’s biggest names, such as Russell Watson, Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins, to the annual concert series, as well as a host of other famous pop and rock acts.
