Image Lawyer Elmar Funke

I have been working as an independent lawyer, specializing in event, copyright and media law in Dusseldorf since 1997. Since 1999, I have been particularly specialized in the area of ​​event law. I advise you before, during and after events about all legal issues. In the field of event law I teach students at various private academies and universities and at the Technical University of Chemnitz. Furthermore, I am also the author of the reference book “Handbuch zum Eventrecht” which was published in its third edition in March 2009.

In addition to the event law I am working in all areas of business law for advisory support. Likewise I am your partner regarding the drafting of contracts or terms and conditions, or if you want to sign a German, European or international trade mark or design.

I like advising young and established writers and artists in the field of copyright and contract law. In 2013, I have therefore founded the artists counseling „Artist to Business“ affiliated to the lawyer’s office in Dusseldorf.
