Media & Entertainment

If you’re writing, producing, or distributing media, we’ll help you protect, procure, and promote it

If you’re in the media and entertainment business – as an indie, a writer, a broadcaster, a funder, or a distributor – we’ve got the experience to help you with your next project.

We’ve worked in-house ourselves, so we know what it’s like, and what you need – from sorting out your talent contracts, to working on commissioning agreements, or scoping out your locations.

Whether you work in TV, film, music, theatre, publishing, or advertising, we’ll help you get the law right – as well as making sure you know the value of what you’re giving away, or buying.

We’re also proud to work with the Iris Prize LGBTQ+ Film Festival.

How we help:
Writers, directors, and production companies

We work with writers, directors, and indies of all shapes and sizes on dramas, comedies, films, and magazine shows. From production level agreements to commissioning deals or booking talent, we’ll help you finalise deals in this tricky and competitive market.

You’ll need to carve up the rights to your production, agreeing things like pre-sales, exclusivity, and DVD rights. It can be a difficult negotiating process, and you need advisers who understand the value of what you’re working with. Our Intellectual Property team will work with you on tightening up your copyrights, helping you protect what you’ve created. Because we’ve worked in-house, we understand how to do this in the best way.

Broadcasters and distributors

If you’re a broadcaster, we can advise you on production level agreements, as well as advertising and regulatory rules, or HR and talent contracts.

We understand exactly how forward thinking you have to be working in distribution. Because we’ve got experience working on projects from a production point of view, we’re well placed to help you negotiate the best deals. We can negotiate with sales agents on your behalf, help carve-up your rights, and handle all your deal-making and contracts.
