Entertainment and Media

24 May 2017

Entertainment and media law covers legal services to the entertainment and media industries, that is to say, advertising, art, events management, film, games, live theatre including dance and opera, music, publishing, radio and television programme making, sport, sound recording, visual arts and web design.

Most of the work in this sector is transactional and lawyers are instructed to advise on, draft, negotiate and review agency and management, consultancy, distribution, licensing and other agreements and legal instruments used in those industries.

Disputes do arise from time to time over licensing, ownership of content, the representation and management of artists and other matters. These are usually assigned to the Chancery Division.
