Sponsorship, Ticketing & Events
We have one of the largest UK teams of lawyers with in-depth knowledge and expertise in the media sector, including dedicated specialists for sponsorship, ticketing, live events including and theatre.
We support businesses on a wide range of contractual and commercial requirements, ranging from providing day-to-day advisory support, to drafting and negotiating strategically important and high value contracts. We also have particular expertise in rights management and exploitation. Many of our lawyers have spent time in industry or in-house and all our experts provide advice that is focused, user friendly and commercially astute.
We are one of the few city law firms who truly understand the media industry. We also know that the cost of legal advice should not be disproportionate to the value of the advice received. We look to resolve issues efficiently, pragmatically and in a cost-effective way, while always focusing on the achievement of our clients’ commercial objectives.
