10+ YEARS’ PQE

HYBRID WORKING

 Our client is a leading global media behemoth.

 We wish to recruit an experienced transactional media lawyer to join an impressive legal team. You will handle all B2B distribution of all content generated by the company, including distribution deals for films, series and digital content (short and long form). The transactions range from content licensing agreements or carriage deals with traditional Pay TV platforms to more intricate and innovative new media deals with internet, connected TV and mobile service providers.  

This is a senior role in the business and an important aspect of your responsibilities will be to support junior members of the team. 

We are looking for a well-trained lawyer with an excellent academic record with experience gained in-house as well as in a reputable law firm. You will be an ambitious and experienced individual who is confident and comfortable handling high value TV programming and channel distribution deals for a global brand. You will gain exposure to important high-profile projects as well as complex and exciting work in a very collegiate team.  

Experience in IP property licensing within television programming, channel distribution and/or digital media will be highly desirable. Lawyers with strong competition experience gained within the media industry will also be considered. The role has an EMEA focus, therefore fluency in another European language is desirable but not essential. This is an excellent opportunity to work in a highly reputable global business as part of a sophisticated team with an excellent working culture.
