Media and Entertainment (Dispute Resolution)

Media and Entertainment

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

This is a constantly evolving global industry. Advances in technology have opened new channels for consumer engagement, ranging from streaming services to social media to targeted advertising. The sector is also affected by changes in lifestyle, attitude and cultural diversity. To be part of this industry demands that you stay one step ahead. Being unprepared or unprotected puts you and your business at risk.

In this kind of market companies and individuals have to maximise the value of all their assets. We help our clients create, commercialise and protect their intellectual property, brand and reputation. We ensure that they are not only protected against an infringement or breach, but also prepared for one and ready to react immediately.

We provide a full suite of legal services to production, promotion, publishing and content owning companies, as well as celebrities, influencers, musicians, actors, directors, producers, authors, journalists, broadcasters, artists, designers and sports talent.

The passion of our team of lawyers is reflected in our embrace of the sector’s incredible diversity. We support one of the UK film industry's charitable bodies, the British Film Institute (BFI) and are a partner in its LGBTQI+ film festival, BFI Flare.
