David Griffiths

Partner, Litigation & Dispute Resolution

David Griffiths is a Partner with two decades’ litigation experience, both within and outside the fields of music, entertainment and media.

Educated at Clare College, Cambridge, the University of Westminster and the College of Law, David trained under Charles Humphreys at niche entertainment firm Allison & Humphreys.

As a Legal 500-named contentious music lawyer, David’s clients have included celebrated individuals, record and publishing majors and minors, and bands, artists and songwriters including Muse, Radiohead, Paul Weller and London Grammar.  Outside of the entertainment arena, David has recently brought successful six- and seven-figure claims against a Premiership football club in contract and, acting for multiple clients, against a major firm of solicitors in professional negligence.

David is equally adept and experienced in defending claims, having recently acted for a television production company and its insurers in successfully resolving a complex and substantial tripartite dispute involving a national commercial television network and the US based Estate of an internationally renowned entertainer.

Whether the dispute falls within or outside of the entertainment sphere, David brings to bear technical abilities which are second to none, a forensic eye and a natural tenacity, coupled with a determination never to lose sight of the commercial objectives.
