The Legal 500
Chambers’ media and entertainment work spans television, theatre, gaming, literature, music and film. Often arising in the context of our core commercial and regulatory practice areas, it also frequently overlaps with our sports law and art and cultural property work.
Members have broad experience of advising on commercial contracts between media organisations and companies, agencies, managers, promoters and trade associations, and of acting in related disputes. This work extends to financing agreements, production agreements, publishing and distribution agreements, licensing agreements, and other contractual arrangements, often with an intellectual property or employment law dimension.
Other experience includes advising in fraud-related matters in the media and entertainment sectors, including in relation to finance schemes, often also involving professional negligence allegations where we have a market-leading practice.
Members also have experience of advising on claims resulting from alleged failure to comply with relevant regulations, and of matters involving serious allegations against individuals and organisations in the media and entertainment fields, crossing over into commercial crime work.
Members of Chambers are adept at handling sensitive and confidential issues in this field, including in matters involving high-profile individuals and organisations.
Our work includes cases relating to:
