THEATRE LAWYER 1- 4 PQE – TOP RATED MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT PRACTICE - OUTSTANDING ROLE
Extremely rare opportunity to join a highly regarded media practice assisting two exceptional partners on theatre work as well as a broader diet of media and entertainment work.
Ideally you will have a genuine interest in theatre however it is imperative that you have a strong commercial law background, perhaps with some IP experience as there is a large emphasis on rights and licensing of rights. Equally you will need a rigorous eye for detail and be highly organised and commercial in your approach and outlook. Theatre clients of the firm include theatre owners, producers and directors, playwrights and touring companies. A large element of the work will be for producers. The work covers all aspects of theatre and live performance including commissioning, creative team arrangements, rights acquisition, production arrangements, merchandising and sponsorship agreements, financing and theatre tax credits and some peripheral film and music elements.
An outstanding and rare role with fantastic prospects. The theatre industry is small and working in a highly regarded practice you will get to know all the key industry players quickly and have high levels of client contact from day one, often with creative people who value your legal input. You will be working in a dynamic, fast moving and valuable creative sector with huge potential to assist in the development of the firm’s theatre practice. Working closely with the partners you will be properly mentored and trained to become a top theatre lawyer and your contribution will equally be about your legal skills and efforts as it will be with your personality and approach.
