Media, Entertainment and Player Agency in South Africa

Within South Africa and internationally, there is a growing awareness of the urgent and important need to protect and promote personal brand identity, in addition to ensuring that work or performances produced by creative personas, entertainers and sportspeople is properly safeguarded – and that ownership and use thereof is adequately secured. Just as the world’s wealthiest companies have been able to commercialise Intellectual Property rather than just their tangible assets, so the relevance and worth of individual and personal Intellectual Property is rapidly gaining global recognition.

Witz Inc. Law Firm situated in Rosebank, Johannesburg, offers expert legal advice and representation to individuals and entities within the sports, media, art, and entertainment industries. Our entertainment lawyers specialises in a range of services related to the protection of Intellectual Property and other legal aspects of personal brand management.

Identifying the inherent value and ownership of an individual’s performances, creations, skills, and talents, is a critically important component of a long-term career or business strategy. The legal advice we provide is based on decades of experience, legal expertise, and a bespoke approach that ensures practical and durable Intellectual Property solutions that are tailor-made for each individual.

A Personalised, Professional Approach At Witz Inc.

At Witz Inc., we offer a different perspective when it comes to personal brand representation. We understand that each of our clients has unique needs, based on the type of industry, public profile, stage of career, and personal objectives that they bring to the table.

This is not something that can be accomplished with a one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter approach. A generic or inadequately informed approach inevitably creates loopholes that may be exploited – in addition to the individual goals and priorities of our clients evolving over time.

Our entertainment lawyers offer expert counsel founded on a deep understanding of our clients’ needs, clear and accurate communication and recommendations, and a friendly, personable experience that prioritises your personal brand. And, in order to ensure comprehensive representation across industries and territories, we form part of a network of select global legal experts and resources, which enables us to manage client matters speedily and with the utmost attention to detail.

It is this pursuit of excellence, combined with solid experience, discerning individualism, and a culture of positive collaboration, that sets Witz Inc. apart – and which carries enormous benefit for our clients.
