The Agent Relationship Ontology (AgRelOn) [1] might be a good fit for your use case. There is an accompanying paper [2,3] providing further information. The relations modeled in AgRelOn were based on existing relations annotated in the  Integrated Authority File edited by the German National Library and the German library networks. We are interested in your feedback, please let me know if we can help.

AgRelOn is available under CC0, so there are no licensing issues there.
