A law graduate from the University of Liège, Pierre Jeanray has been a member of the Brussels Bar since 1990.
Together with various colleagues, he has been building an independent law practice, aimed in particular at defending the interests of small and medium-sized enterprises.
His firm has developed a practice in civil and commercial law, and also handles employment disputes. Beyond this generalist approach, Pierre Jeanray also deals with issues and problems specific to cultural and artistic enterprises and the media.
In addition to issues of intellectual and artistic property, copyright and related rights, etc., contractual and other issues, such as the organization and structuring of such activities, are also dealt with; and this includes international cases. Finally, this practice also covers the social and tax treatment of the income and expenditure of cultural and audio-visual enterprises.
Pierre Jeanray works in both French and English.
He also speaks Dutch and German.

SACD), various articles in Medialex, Guide des médias, Auteurs & Medias, etc.), besides various legal publications aimed directly at professionals (e.g.: Guide juridique du musicien (Ed. Conseil de la Musique), Taxation of musician’s income (id.), etc.).
