Macleay William is a preeminent entertainment law practice which encompasses a broad range of work within the entertainment and media spheres. We work with a select group of clients to achieve their creative aims. We maintain close relationships with our clients so as to understand both their immediate and long-term financial goals.
We negotiate and document the financing of film and television productions. We also represent leading Australian creative properties and talent in their local and international arrangements, primarily in the US, but also across Europe.
In recent years we have represented a number of US studios and overseas production companies on productions shot in Australia. In these capacities we work closely with US studios, agents and attorneys and locally with the senior management of most major Australian media companies and Government screen agencies.
We have offices in Sydney and Melbourne. We regularly attend international film and television markets, giving us a greater opportunity to assist our clients to maximise their global reach.
Our goal is to provide personalised service and to work with our clients through all stages of development, finance and production, and to provide ongoing support during the exploitation of their projects.
