I’ve worked with Richard Hoare for over 10 years. I’ve been consistently happy with his very high standard of work and attention to detail.

Mark Ralph

Richard Hoare is among the most kind, diligent, loyal, creative people to roam the earth. AND HE'S A LAWYER.

‘But who has won?’ This question the Dodo could not answer without a great deal of thought, and it sat for a long time with one finger pressed upon its forehead (the position in which you usually see Shakespeare, in the pictures of him), while the rest waited in silence. At last the Dodo said, ‘everybody has won, and all must have prizes.’

I've been lucky to have had 10 years of loyal representation from this exceptionally smart and thoughtful lawyer, liked and well-respected by so many in the industry.

Mara Carlyle

Richard has represented me for almost 10 years now. He offers a deep insight from his experience and knowledge. I have always admired Richard's thoughtful approach. He is diligent, honest and dependable. Hand on heart, I trust him. It’s a simple as that.


Richard has represented me across all avenues of my music business. I can't recommend him enough. He finds innovative solutions to problems and is my first point of contact when the shit hits the fan.

Will Saul

Richard is the ultimate counsel - he negotiates a mean record deal and is equally deft at playing therapist to the artistic temperament. I came in the door as a client, and am staying as friend.

Tim Exile

Richard's experience, counsel, guidance and creativity has helped us embrace opportunities and grow - both creatively and as a business. All this and a genuine love and enthusiasm for music too.
