1-2-1 Legal Surgery with Hayley Brady

Book a surgery slot for Friday 24 March 2017. Twenty-minute slots available between 10:00am and 1:00pm.

Venue: WFTV Office, 92-93 Great Russell Street, WC1B 3PS.

Are you drafting, signing and/or negotiating media agreements (for example, media rights or production agreements)? Do you know what to watch out for? Want to talk through this with a legal media commercial expert?

We are delighted that Hayley Brady, Senior Media and Entertainment Lawyer at Herbert Smith Freehills, has offered to do this 1-2-1 surgery exclusively for WFTV members here at the WFTV office. This session will focus on key terms of agreements and is aimed at answering queries that you may have on media agreements that you are signing, drafting and/or negotiating. Having a general understanding of key terms of media agreements is fundamental for those operating in the Television and Film industries and getting it right upfront can avoid problems later down the line!

This unique session will cover both commercial terms and legal terms (such as indemnities, liability and governing law and jurisdiction) and will give you an opportunity to receive tailored legal advice on your agreements.

Described in Legal 500 as ”unflappable under pressure, with incredible stamina and a real eye for detail”, Hayley adopts a very commercial approach with her media and entertainment clients.

How to apply for a slot:

E-mail with the following information:

•         State your name, legal questions and project/company outline
•         Include your contact phone number
•         Put ‘Legal Surgery’ in the subject line

Twenty-minute slots between 10:00am and 1:00pm are available.

Surgery slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Surgery slots will take place at the WFTV office (92-92 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3PS), NOT at the Theatres Trust.
