Crefovi has a ‟Media & Entertainment” industry group. This team is grounded in its strong experience across all sectors of media, sports & entertainment.
Converging global content with technology at Crefovi
During recent years, the media & entertainment industry has, and continues to, dramatically evolve, requiring increased focus on technology and sophisticated expertise in complex global transactions, and detailed industry expertise in dispute resolution in and across multiple jurisdictions.
The media & entertainment lawyers of the group counsel industry clients on the following:
- complex new media and technology agreements;
- joint ventures and mergers of international media and entertainment companies;
- leagues, Olympics and other sports-related representation;
- finance transactions;
- content production, acquisition and distribution deals, and
- television, radio and new media transactions.
Supporting clients in the context of the convergence culture’s rapidly changing consumer demands requires Crefovi to couple its substantive industry expertise with an understanding of each client’s specific needs and plans: our law firm Crefovi approaches each matter with a strategic, long-term view. You only have to read our ‟Music & entertainment law blog” to convince yourself of our grasp of media & entertainment issues.
Crefovi also assists its clients, whether individual talent or large multinational companies, to navigate and resolve disputes, claims and government actions. Additionally, the firm acts as a bridge-builder between traditional and new media, and across emerging centers of media and entertainment influence.
Crefovi represents institutional clients, companies from motion picture studios, to international distributors of television and film content, digital media, music and live event venues, sports-related industries, and satellite, cable and telecommunications companies.
A global network
Clients praise Crefovi’s lawyers for their responsiveness & ability to understand the technical, business and legal aspects of each media & entertainment transaction and come back, deal after deal, to be advised by them.
While London and Paris based, we routinely work across borders. The vast majority of our engagements are multi-jurisdictional. We are used to working in multinational teams, and rely on our network of specialist lawyers for support in other jurisdictions.
The team has therefore established an extensive international network of media & entertainment contacts and a close association with other specialist lawyers worldwide. Our history of successes in high profile, politically sensitive matters reflects an ability to act swiftly and with the utmost discretion.
Indeed, Crefovi’s lawyers are very well connected in the entertainment world, attending, and participating to, discussion panels, on a regular basis, each session of the professional trade shows such as Midem, MaMa, SXSW, the Cannes film festival, EFM and the Berlinale and the American Film Market.
