These inherently intellectual property-rich industries are a natural fit for Bristows’ expertise.
Our media, entertainment and sporting clients range from major publishing houses to television companies; from production studios to sports clubs, championships and governing bodies; from major household brands to creative agencies; and from development houses to leading players in the interactive entertainment and gaming industry.
They seek our advice on a broad range of issues - both contentious and non-contentious - often with intellectual property at the heart of the matter, enabling them to protect and capitalise on what are often their most significant assets.
We bring our extensive knowledge and passion for these sectors to offer end-to-end support for our clients on all aspects of the registration, protection and exploitation of their brands and intellectual property rights. This includes, by way of example, supporting on sponsorship or talent endorsement deals, product collaborations, film and TV production and distribution, talent agreements, influencer marketing, advertising compliance and clearance, publishing agreements, the acquisition and licensing of content, IP infringement, pre-publication rights clearance and associated brand, defamation and IP issues.
