Fran is an international entertainment lawyer, and has spent most of her time in the UK working in London, Dublin and Belfast. She had a great time working as in-house counsel for the major labels (Warner and Universal) in London for over a decade, where she worked with some of the biggest artists and artist managers in the world.

Fran set up her own legal practice in London 15 years ago, representing artists, inde labels, promoters, producers and anyone else in the music industry that needed legal advice or help negotiating their deals. She lived in Belfast for 4 years which she totally loved and worked with the musicians and music industry there. Fran now runs her legal practice out of Perth – RubyRed Legal, and represents a myriad of entertainment clients including models, film production companies, script writers, authors, songwriters, and musicians.

She has also managed artists for 15 years, most recently Gina Williams (WA of the Year – Aboriginal Category). “Brokering the deals and being out on the road makes me a better lawyer and a better manager”.
