We are acutely conscious of the difficulties that you may be facing at the present time. Our paramount concern is for the health of our staff, our clients, their families, and the wider community. As such our staff are now working remotely. Telephone numbers remain the same and, technology permitting, we intend to keep working as before, without interruption.  We stand ready, as always, to provide you with any assistance that you may require.

Film & TV

We act for platforms, financiers, content companies, award-winning producers, leading talent, writers, directors, authors (and author’s estates) and other businesses in the film and television sector.


A number of our team provide a unique perspective: they bring with them years of industry expertise and experience, enabling them to combine a potent mix of savvy commercial and detailed legal advice for our clients. The result: our clients can focus on the important elements of their creative businesses, with the confidence that they are well protected.

We are a tier-one ranked firm - the head of the practice, Kami Naghdi, is one of a handful of lawyers listed as a leading individual in film and television in the Legal 500.

We work closely with our market leading teams in litigation, music, brands, digital media and corporate. In recent years, we have become the leading firm in Film & TV litigation in London achieving a number of milestone judgments in the sector.

The team consists of Associates Tara Smith, Leo Hugh-Jones and Supna Chavda, Senior Associate Luke Gornell and Partners Steve Joelson (Litigation) and Kami Naghdi.
