DAC Beachcroft provides pro bono advice to MOBO

Published 6 diciembre 2021

A cross-cluster DAC Beachcroft team, led by London corporate partner Jonathan Deverill, is providing pro bono advice to the MOBO Organisation in connection with the 2021 MOBO Awards.

Now in its 24th year, the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards, founded by MOBO CEO Kanya King CBE, has become one of Europe’s biggest music awards ceremonies. It is the premiere outlet for recognising and honouring the artistic and technical achievements of exceptional British and international talent in the musical fields of hip hop, grime, RnB, soul, reggae, jazz, gospel and African music.

DAC Beachcroft has advised MOBO on commercial contracts with partners and suppliers for the Awards.

Jonathan Deverill, London Head of DAC Beachcroft’s Corporate team said: “We are delighted to have been able to advise and provide expertise to MOBO in its work to recognise and encourage young black artists. Supporting such a worthy cause was a very motivating project for our lawyers and it provided them with a great opportunity to develop their legal skills and support a cause which matters.”

Other members of the MOBO pro bono team at DACB were Sonia Khan, Chuka Snell, John Stringer, Angela Udeh, Jagtar Boparai and Pavan Trivedi.

Lois Duguid, DACB’s Head of Responsible Business, said, “Our support for MOBO through this pro bono project is reflective of our purpose as a firm, and as individuals: to drive inclusivity for everyone. This pro bono partnership is an important component of our growing ESG strategy as a firm for environmental and social sustainability.”
