Emily MacKintosh, Senior Associate, Commercial IP
I am a senior associate specialising in the media and entertainment sector.
I have particular expertise in film and television and my practice includes media asset financing transactions, general production work, talent agreements, rights acquisition, chain of title, copyright advisory work, sales agency and distribution. I have represented both financier and independent producer clients on film financing transactions. I have also worked alongside the corporate department on media joint venture structures.
I have recently returned to private practice after spending two years as director of legal and business affairs at Working Title Films. While there I worked on a number of film productions based in the UK and abroad and gained an invaluable insight into the running of a successful entertainment business. I continue to have a strong working relationship with Working Title which is now one of my clients.
I was described in Chambers & Partners 2011 as someone who is "smart, organised and gets things done" and named as one of five "associates to watch" in the film and television sector.
My interests include reading, running, Pilates and watching rugby.
