TV & Film

We support all the stakeholders in this content creation sector transitioning from the perception of a “traditional” media to a digitally supported production and exploitation environment.

We have a team of highly experienced film and TV practitioners who have held senior legal and commercial positions in, for example, major film finance and distribution companies, leading broadcaster groups and digital content owners. The combined experience gives the team a unique insight to assist our clients to understand the legal and commercial imperatives for producers, financiers and distributors of all types of film and TV content.
