We have established a strong reputation for our media and IP work: whether it's film and TV production, visual effects and post production, access agreements, location permit arrangements for filming, brand strategy, registered protections, IP licensing and commercialisation, structuring, partnering etc; or our Dispute Resolution work.
Our clients include high profile and widely renowned Hollywood studios through to local content producers.
