Media & Entertainment

All of the lawyers in our team have previously practised in leading City media and entertainment law firms, working with some of the leading media and entertainment providers. We also have a wealth of experience, acting for private individuals in relation to these providers.

We are well versed in helping clients with their contentious and non-contentious needs. On the commercial side, we regularly help clients with licensing of content, rights clearance and distribution of content. We provide pre-publication/pre-broadcast advice often on an urgent basis.

On the contentious side, we help clients to resolve disputes they may have over use of intellectual property rights, libellous material and breaches of confidentiality and privacy. Increasingly, we are advising clients on these sorts of disputes in a social media and/or digital context.

Our digital content practice continues to grow. Our copyright experience means that we are ideally placed to advise clients on licensing in and out of music, film, text and imagery, whatever the context.
