The firm is proud of its long-standing community and pro bono activities.
THE MUSICIANS' CLINIC
Leonard Lowy created and founded The Musicians' Clinic, a popular monthly advice forum for musicians, which ran successfully at The Hawley Arms in Camden between 2009 and 2012. With a rotating panel of experts drawn from different sectors of the industry, the Clinic helped many aspiring bands and artists with honest, no-holds-barred advice on a whole range of issues including legal, PR, live, production, management, publishing and online media, in an informal and relaxed environment that attracted many regular attenders.
Leonard Lowy & Co. is part of the BASCA Legal Service which offers free initial advice to members of The British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.
THE BERT JANSCH FOUNDATION
Leonard Lowy & Co. is proud to have represented the celebrated guitarist and artist Bert Jansch, who sadly passed away in 2011. Leonard Lowy says: "It was a privilege to have worked with Bert and his dear wife Loren who also, sadly, is no longer with us. Despite his legendary status Bert was one of the humblest and most unassuming artists I have ever met. I am honoured to have been asked by the family to be one of the Trustees of the Bert Jansch Foundation, which has been launched to coincide with what would have been Bert's 70th birthday."
The Foundation will raise funds primarily to educate and support future generations of acoustic musicians. Its first project was a rousing and emotional tribute concert at a sold-out Royal Festival Hall on 3 December 2013 showcasing Bert's music and featuring a whole host of star names including Robert Plant, Ralph McTell, Donovan, Martin Carthy, members of Pentangle and (by video link) Neil Young.

We are proud to have handled the legal work for Drawing Life, an hour-long dramatised song cycle by composer Jocelyn Pook, with film and video projections, featuring drawings and poems by children imprisoned in the Terezin (Theresienstadt) concentration camp during World War II. Commissioned by the Jewish Music Institute, and based on the book "...I never saw another butterfly...", the piece had its first public performance at King's Place, London, on 22 February 2014.
