Our client is a global household name in media looking to recruit an experienced transactional media lawyer to join an impressive team. The role will sit at a senior level in the business and will involve advising on the structuring and negotiation of distribution deals within film and TV.

The scope of deals is broad ranging and will be made up of major output of carriage deals through traditional Pay TV channels as well as more intricate and innovative new media deals with internet, connected TV and mobile service providers. You will be part of an highly reputable team which handles the B2B distribution of all its own generated content.

You will also be expected to offer general advice on regulatory, IP, anti-piracy and competition issues as well as everyday strategic and commercial advice to the business. You may be required to assist with management of junior colleagues. 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 does have an EMEA focus, therefore fluence in French 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
