Statham Gill was founded in May 1991 by Kaz Gill and John Statham in Notting Hill as a boutique music law practice.
Mark Davies joined in 1992 and SGD was formed. The firm grew rapidly in the early to late nineties representing many of the major Britpop guitar bands that became successful during that period including Oasis, Suede, Primal Scream and Radiohead. Since those early days the firm has grown steadily reinforcing its position as one of the major entertainment and media law firms in the UK. SGD now represents clients from all sectors of the entertainment industry and has broadened the scope of legal services provided to include advice on property matters, litigation, private client (wills and probate) and employment matters.
