The interactive entertainment industry continues to change, grow and mature with relentless speed. The need for legal advice that can keep pace and ensure commercial success is more paramount than ever before.
Our interactive entertainment team are experts in helping to achieve this. Our team of lawyers from across specialisms and backgrounds combine their passion and ingrained industry knowledge to help a broad range of clients navigate this constantly evolving sector. We understand how the industry is changing, the commercial ins-and-outs of how it works and where to look to ensure our clients are protected.
Whether you're just starting out, or an established household name, we know how important each stage of the process is to your success. Our team has assisted businesses on cutting edge new technologies and practices. This includes providing answers to complex and/or novel legal and commercial questions, as well as the legal issues that clients face when entering the metaverse.
Our clients range from some of the most notable games publishers, developers and distributors, to broadcasters, designers and talent (and everyone in between).
As the industry grows, there is increasing regulatory scrutiny including how it should be governed. Every aspect of gaming – from monetisation and live services to industry consultations and user-generated content – is under pressure year-on-year from governments and regulators to comply with ever-changing practices. We proactively monitor all of these developments to help clients anticipate and react to issues as they arise, fostering long-standing business relationships.
We work with teams across the firm, including Betting and Gaming, esports, Intellectual Property, Commercial Contracts, Media and Corporate specialists, to provide bespoke cross-departmental advice.
