HEAD OF LEGAL AND BUSINESS AFFAIRS
10+ YEARS’ PQE, SCRIPTED AND UNSCRIPTED
MEDIA LAW FIRM – CENTRAL LONDON
HIGHLY COMPETITIVE PACKAGE

We have a unique opportunity for a dynamic solicitor or barrister with extensive experience of working in both scripted and unscripted TV production to join a highly respected, boutique media law firm as the Head of Legal & Business Affairs.
 
As legal and regulatory experts in the television, VOD and publishing industries, our client advises many of the UK’s leading independent production companies, broadcasters, and other content producers.

The role has arisen as a result of the firm’s commitment to growing its core media and entertainment practice.
Working closely with the CEO, key responsibilities include:

  • Providing expert advice to company clients, especially TV Indies, on business and commercial affairs, chain of title, and rights issues
  • Structuring deals, drafting and negotiating various agreements, and handling day-to-day TV business affairs and production services inquiries
  • Developing and growing a 'scripted' Business Affairs department
  • Contributing to the company's growth and direction
  • Managing and mentoring employees
  • Supporting the CEO in the role of Head of Legal Practice.

 
The ideal candidate will have an in-depth, practical, understanding of television production across scripted and unscripted content. 
Candidates currently may be in a senior in-house role, having previously had some experience of private practice earlier in their career. 

Alternatively, candidates may be at senior associate/junior partner level working in private practice and looking for an opportunity to progress and develop their practice.  

If you are ready to take on a challenging and rewarding role, contribute to the growth of the firm, and play a key role in shaping the future of the Business Affairs department, we invite you contact us.

Any direct or third party applications  will be forwarded to Kinsella Legal for consideration.
