Tony Grujovski
Senior Associate

Tony is an experienced solicitor and registered trade marks attorney with an extensive background practising in intellectual property law matters, specialising in IP disputes and litigation. Tony also has broader legal expertise across entertainment law, employment law and general commercial law matters, utilising his sharp contract drafting skills and commercially-minded approach.

Tony lives and breathes trade marks – he currently manages our clients’ trade mark portfolios, drawing on his specialist IP knowledge to ensure that these valuable assets are adequately protected both in Australia and internationally. He has a track record of protecting and enforcing the IP rights of a range of creative businesses such as fashion houses, food/beverage manufacturers and photographers.

Tony has a keen interest in assisting creatively driven clients with their legal issues, drawing from his passion for music (although he does not profess to be as musically talented as the rest of the Studio Legal team!) and anything tech related.


Sarah Bradly-McKay
Special Counsel

Sarah is a commercial lawyer with 20 years’ experience, both in private practice and in-house, and has previously run her own legal practice.

Sarah’s experience spans across a broad range of practice areas including commercial, employment, media and intellectual property law. Her commercial focus means she is able to quickly understand business operations and drivers, distil the relevant legal issues and provide strategic, accurate and timely legal advice to her clients.

Whilst working at Studio Legal, Sarah is also on a part-time secondment working for one of our top clients and restaurant chain, Schnitz.

Until recently, Sarah spent four years working New Zealand, before relocating back to Melbourne, which she calls home. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys camping and a nice glass of wine, and is the proud mother of two beautiful children.

Bree Coker
Office Manager & Legal Assistant

Bree wears many hats across Admin, Accounts and Marketing to ensure the Studio Legal office runs like a well-oiled machine!  Bree’s legal career began several years ago and saw her working across a variety of practice areas including intellectual property law and trade marks.

Bree holds a Bachelor of Entertainment (Business Management) and enjoys combining her passion for the creative industries with her legal background. Bree has previously spent time working for both a major record label and a film distributor, before returning to law.

Bree trained in both classical and contemporary singing for many years, whilst her love of dance music sees her dabble with DJ-ing in her spare time (although she’s not quite ready for a club residency just yet!)


Megan O’Halloran
Legal Administration Assistant

Megan is our resident admin gun and newest addition to the Studio Legal family. Megan is currently in her penultimate year of a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Science and has a keen interest in intellectual property and entertainment law.

Megan has an extensive administration background, having worked in a busy medical centre for several years, and has also spent time volunteering for the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service.

Outside of work, Megan enjoys playing netball, teaching herself to play guitar, or watching the footy.  (Go Cats!)


Julian Davis
Solicitor

Julian has a wealth of legal and business experience working with some big names in the music industry such as Big Day Out, Apollo Bay Music Festival, Shock Records, Abbey Road Studios and Studios 301.

Practising as a solicitor at Studio Legal, Julian enjoys building and working with clients in the music, entertainment, creative and tech start-up space. Drawing on his own commercial experience, Julian is able to offer his clients not only practical advice but industry tips on how to structure and negotiate effective deals.

As well as practising law, Julian is the owner and operator of recording studio (Milk Bar Studios), live sound engineering business (Julian Davis Productions) and ticketing tech start-up Cutiso. He also lectures at Swinburne University and Abbey Road Studios and is a professional, classically trained drummer.

But despite his impressive resume, Julian’s biggest achievement is by far, being a dad to Charlie and Pippa.
