It’s a great opportunity to get questions answered, that you may be wondering about but don’t quite need a 1-2-1 appointment.

Clare Hoban, Specialist Television and Film Content Lawyer at Reviewed & Cleared. Clare reviews the content of television and film before broadcast to ensure production companies and broadcasters are not sued. Clare advises on every genre of television and film from documentaries, factual drama, factual entertainment, fictional drama, live and ‘as live’ broadcasts, reality television, entertainment shows, news output etc.
There are only a handful of lawyers with this specialism in the UK. Clare is one of only a few of female lawyers in the UK advising programme makers in industry as opposed to advising a broadcaster from ‘ in house’. She started her career as Head of Legal and Public Affairs for the trade body that represents the magazine industry, followed by 12 years at the BBC as a senior content lawyer and the last 4 years she has spent in private practice advising content creators and broadcasters including SVOD platforms and all the main terrestrial channels. Clare is well known to the various insurance companies who require legal content reviews of content in order to qualify for E & O insurance.
