The Oh Yeah music centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland has had a series of highly positive engagements with Fran Cotton.

She has helped us to draw up partnership contracts for successful music projects. She has given us a lot of helpful, ad hoc advice. And she has also worked as an advisor and mentor to a series of bands in our music talent development programmes.  All of the above services have drawn on Fran's great reservoir of music industry experience and her finesse with legal issues particular to this sector. She is also a very approachable and enthusiastic professional. We have no hesitation in recommending Fran.

Fran has always been a charm to work with and very understanding of the intricacies of working with an  independent music company. Fran has always carved out excellent deals for us and I recommend her services to anyone in the music industry

Fran has acted as lawyer and business affairs adviser to both myself and my artists and songwriters for over 5 years.

As one of the most knowledgeable and experienced music industry lawyers I've encountered, her advice and contribution has been invaluable. Her expertise on recording and music publishing contracts is second to none, and I never cease to be amazed by her incredible attention to detail. I would recommend Fran to any artist or music industry professional without hesitation!

I have worked with Fran professionally for the past 8 years, initially as an artiste manager and in that role found her to be a highly effective, strong but empathetic artiste representative, and then as our legal representative on a number of negotiations. 

Fran's attention to legal detail is exceptional and she has become an invaluable member of our negotiating team.  I would recommend her to anyone who needs a fair and strong advocate. On top of that she is a positive and joyful person to be around - a great combination when you are in the middle of difficult negotiations.  I can highly recommend her experienced and innovative approach to her profession.

My daughter Jessica has started a career in modelling over the past six months and during this time we have engaged Fran as our entertainment lawyer for contractual negotiations.

Fran has delivered a number of important results for us during this time. While delivering results, Fran has also shown an ability to communicate the meaning of agreements to us in terms of outcomes and implications that are understandable. I would thoroughly recommend Fran for entertainment industry legal representation and strategic advice.
