In the fast-moving and rapidly developing media and entertainment law field, Haldanes’ lawyers have been recognized as the team to watch.
The firm is widely recognized for its work in this area, with awards and representation on industry bodies within Asia and internationally.
Our lawyers represent clients ranging from major international record companies, and international television and film production companies, to event promoters and artists.
Our law firm’s range of services covers all aspects of the film, television and music industries, including financing, production, licensing and distribution and artist and talent agreements.
We also act for clients engaged in sports and event promotions, theatrical productions, advertising and other forms of media, hospitality and leisure, and advising on copyright and intellectual property matters generally.
Our multi-award-winning lawyers stay up-to-date with the cutting-edge changes in new technology and their impact on the media and entertainment industry, advising on online and mobile deployment strategies and the legal issues associated with these.
Given the sensitivity with which the media is regarded in many jurisdictions in Asia, we are experienced in addressing regulatory issues relevant to the industry.
In particular, we are familiar with the workings of the Broadcasting and Telecommunication authorities in Hong Kong and, in conjunction with our correspondent lawyers, with the State Administration of Radio Film and Television in the People’s Republic of China.
Where necessary, we can assist with contentious issues within media and entertainment law, including copyright infringement, contractual issues and more specialised matters which may require reference to the Copyright Tribunal in Hong Kong.
Our extensive experience in this area in various jurisdictions allows us to provide informed and practical legal advice on a wide variety of issues and to assist our clients in making the right commercial decisions.
