Clive has spent 25 years as a music and entertainment lawyer, negotiating contracts for the very cream of the industry. He's negotiated agreements for the likes of Pop Idol, MySpace and Simon Cowell's company Syco. He's also been hired by Annie Lennox, Take That and Simply Red (among others) to get them the best deal possible for their recording agreements.
Prior to founding Rich Futures, Clive worked at Sony BMG, where he created a pioneering developing business and digital division. He's also held senior business affairs positions with BMG Europe, BMG Music Publishing and WEA Records.
Rich Futures provides a deal-making and business affairs toolkit for the new 'deal economy': it structures and closes deals for clients working with partners to create value. Clients include content owners, artists, brands, software companies, hardware companies, DSPs and media owners - the Royal Opera House and the government's Technology Strategy Board among them.
Clive is an expert in business negotiations, deal syndication and commercial and strategic advice, and will soon be releasing an iPhone app to help business owners and others negotiate their way through life and business as successfully as possible.
