Brian Chadwick, Partner, Corporate, Fieldfisher

I am a corporate lawyer with 20 years' experience advising tech companies through corporate and commercial transactions.  As the former GC of a fast-growing digital games company, I bring a unique commercial perspective to clients and advisers in the tech industry.

I have particular expertise in private company M&A, joint ventures and cross-border corporate transactions.  From my time in-house with Miniclip, I developed expertise in commercial agreements in the digital games, media and entertainment sectors.  I work to combine the technical expertise of an external adviser with the commercial understanding of an in-house lawyer and director of a fast-growing company.

I am a UK and US qualified corporate lawyer.  Through education and experience, I have a broad legal knowledge particularly in contract law.  I am a transaction lawyer at heart.  I see work streams and steps to complete a transaction, always focused on execution and delivery within the time and budget of the client.

I am focused on the dynamic and fast-moving digital games sector.  I am a tech-focused corporate lawyer and regularly work with companies who create, develop, buy, sell, license and exploit content in the digital media, advertising, fashion and entertainment industries.

Playing my part as a director and GC of Miniclip including the acquisitions of 8 Ball Pool, and Testaluna Studios.  Being part of the team that planned and executed the successful sale to Tencent.

I am a regular speaker at games company conferences around the world.  I am pleased to be on the advisory panel for the Pocket Gamer Connects conference in London. 

I'm involved in the Arts and sit on the Tate Members, Tate Britain and Tate Digital advisory committees.  I recently retired from the British Museum Members' advisory committee where I was Vice Chair.  I am the founder of The Cultural Forum – a dinner club that debates cultural issues of the day.  I am a former All American runner (400m, 800m and 4x400m) and still run from time to time.
