Concert and music festival organisers Mckeown Events are set for further growth as the business joins forces with All Things Considered Group.

A team of advisors at Knights worked with James Mckeown, owner of Mckeown Events, on a deal to sell a 50 per cent stake to All Things Considered Group – which specialises in talent management, live event booking and a range of direct-to-consumer services.

The Mckeown team has organised more than 300 events and festivals in the UK over the last 18 years – including Brighton’s On The Beach Festival – and has a stake in music label Something Records Ltd. and in Concorde 2, the legendary live music venue in Brighton.

Knights’ team was led by Corporate Partner Dominic Travers alongside employment specialists Sarah Brockhurst and Aleesha Amjad.

James Mckeown, chief executive at Mckeown Asset Ltd, said:

"I am excited to be joining forces with ATC to create something truly special and distinct in the music industry. By leveraging ATC's established and integrated music group we will have access to market intelligence and expertise that will enrich our operations and accelerate our potential in the live and festival space in which we see significant growth opportunity in the current market.

“It was a pleasure working with Dominic and the Knights team who adeptly guided me through the sale and investment process.”

Dominic Travers, Partner at Knights, said:

“This is great news for James and Mckeown Events and we’re looking forward to seeing them go from strength-to-strength in partnership with ATC.”

With 23 offices nationwide, Knights is ranked within the top 50 UK law firms by revenue – and is the largest regional legal and professional services business operating outside London.

The business provides multiple services to business clients alongside premium advisory services to private individuals.
