Film & TV

Film and television work has been part of Marriott Harrison LLP’s practice since the Firm’s establishment in 1985.

We act for a wide range of producers and creative talent in connection with the origination, development, production and exploitation of feature films as well as documentaries, television and all other audio-visual programming. We also represent sales agents and distributors.

Clients involve us in projects from development and commissioning through to completion, delivery and exploitation in all traditional and new media.

Together with our Corporate Department we have advised numerous independents in relation to merger and acquisition activity as well as those financing and investing in productions and production companies.
