Savvy and specialist lawyers for the interactive entertainment industry
Interactive entertainment has overtaken music and film to become one of the largest industries in the entertainment media sector, and is a cultural force to be reckoned with.
Our interactive entertainment lawyers have a deserved reputation as the best in the game. They're savvy and deeply involved in this fast-moving industry. They understand the unique ways in which digital and media regulation, intellectual property rights and new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and blockchain, intersect.

Media & Entertainment: Gaming and Social Media client UK
Clients come to us for our knowledge of how legal issues work within this rapidly changing sector and their impact. The areas we support them with include crafting terms and disclosures for globally distributed products and services in a world of increasingly granular regulation; structuring deals; typical commercial terms; and advice on what works and what doesn't.
We can help you navigate the industry as it moves from physical to digital distribution and service models; as online games expand into broader metaverses; and as video game intellectual property is used to inspire successful films and TV shows, rather than the other way around.
