Our experts specialise in providing corporate and commercial legal advice to clients in the media and entertainment sectors, with extensive experience advising on all aspects of filmed content for theatrical films and television, from financing and production through to distribution and exploitation.

In respect of our film work, we have particular expertise in the independent film world, working with feature and documentary film producers, distribution and sales companies, rights acquisition companies and film financiers as clients. We are experienced negotiating in Hollywood with agents and studios and can advise on rights acquisitions, cast contracts, production insurance issues and music clearances. We also regularly advise on co-productions as well as all forms of distribution arrangements, independent and studio-based.

With regard to our work in the television sector, our specialists act for a number of television producers and have advised on the financing and production of a vast range of television projects and talent deals, together with rights clearance issues and content issues, which dovetails with our other sector specialisms and award-winning teams in data protection and intellectual property.

The team has been listed as “one to watch” by Legal 500.
