Media & Entertaiment

Specialized unit

The multidisciplinary area of Media & Entertainment is made up of lawyers who are experts in different practices, with in-depth knowledge of the entertainment industry and who put their knowledge and experience at the service of the specificities of the sector's operators.

Our team provides advice on contractual, corporate, tax and labour matters, as well as on financing transactions and mergers and acquisitions. The area provides services to entities in the audiovisual sector as operators in the production of events and public shows, cinema, advertising, podcasting, television, radio and digital broadcasting, music festivals, theatre, concerts and music in general; and we operate in the world of sport, esports, gaming and digital entertainment, where we have participated in some of the main operations on the national and international scene.

We advise our clients on a day-to-day basis, negotiate their advertising, artistic or sporting contracts and also accompany them in complex corporate transactions; we assist in the design of legal structures taking into consideration tax incentives and other public aid. We also represent them in out-of-court and administrative proceedings in sports or judicial matters of all kinds, making the Media & Entertainment area a one-stop-shop for any industry operator.
