Our media lawyers have a reputation for making things happen with creative solutions and advising how to structure deals to best effect. We can also be called upon as executive producers if you have any requirement for business advice as well.
We are typically involved from the beginning to the end of a production’s journey, including development, pre-production, production, distribution and exploitation of the project. We handle all crew and talent agreements, work permits where necessary, insurance, publicity requirements and all intellectual property matters.
Our media and entertainment expertise covers film, television, theatre, music and publishing, and we also act for banks and financiers in relation to the financing of projects and in relation to carrying out your due diligence requirements.
Our team is led by Brian Eagles, a veteran of the media & entertainment industry who has represented top talent across many fields. Recently, we advised on the musical production of “Only Fools and Horses” in the West End and “Gone with the Wind” in China. We work on all types of media and entertainment deals, and are one of the few firms capable of advising across the full media spectrum of production from theatre to television and film.
We advise on licence agreements for the merchandising of famous international marks and brands.
We understand that securing finance is fundamental to many media and entertainment products. We are able to provide innovative finance structuring whether for single-production feature films, movies, a series or gap financing. Whatever your financing needs, our team will work closely with you to secure the financing needed to complete your project.
We can advise you on digital media campaigns via social media as well as dealing with reputation and privacy issues that arise.
