MEDIA PARTNER (SPORTS AND GAMING) – GLOBAL LAW FIRM
MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT, SPORTS, COMPUTER GAMES
REF: AH 2093
Our client is a leading international law firm with a truly global network. The firm boasts one of the world’s largest and most respected TMT practice groups; spanning top tier practices in IP, Technology, Telecoms, Life Sciences and Media & Entertainment. Their Media & Entertainment practice brings together specialist industry expertise within Broadcasting, Film, Music, Computer Games, Sport and Publishing, and their coverage includes: Corporate, Media Finance, Production and Distribution, Commercial/IP, Branding, Advertising/Marketing, Regulatory and Privacy/Reputation.
The firm’s Media & Entertainment practice is thriving but they have identified a couple of areas which are ripe for development with the addition of strategic lateral hires. The chief growth areas are in Sports and Video Games. They have a stable of clients ranging from sports teams and franchises, sports marketing companies, digital media platforms, computer games and app developers and distributors, rights holders and corporate sponsors, who seek very specific legal, regulatory and commercial advice peculiar to their industry. Whilst they have some bandwidth in these areas, they are keen to bolster their expertise and industry knowledge, in order to maximise opportunities from their existing client base and help to attract new clients involved in these dynamic fields.
The successful candidate may be an existing partner with an established practice in this area, a Senior Associate/Counsel with an early stage following or an in-house lawyer with the right expertise and contacts in this field, and the acumen required to convert these into a viable practice.
You will benefit from joining a strong platform, with an exceptional brand and reputation in the TMT space, and be part of a leading international business law firm.
Please apply with your CV in complete confidence to Alec Harvey or contact Alec for a discreet conversation about this opportunity.
