Deutschland > Medien > Entertainment

Durch die Verzahnung der IP-, IT- und Digitalisierungsteams gelingt es der Medien- und Entertainmentabteilung von SKW Schwarz Rechtsanwälte in mehreren Kernmärkten und auch global zu agieren. Beispielsweise konnte die neue E-Sports-Fokusgruppe um Senior Associate Moritz Mehner  zur Gründung einer Weltliga im E-Sport und somit auch zur Entwicklung neuer Regularien und Modelle beitragen. Ferner konnte die Kanzlei im Zusammenhang mit dem neuen Medienstaatsvertrag sowie bei Verhandlungen, etwa in Verbindung mit Kurzarbeits-Tarifverträgen, strategische Beratung anbieten. Im letzteren Bereich zeichnete sich Mathias Schwarz, Experte für Film- und Fernsehproduktion sowie Urheber- und Persönlichkeitsrechte, besonders aus. Martin Diesbach legt einen Schwerpunkt auf nationale und internationale digitale Geschäftsmodelle. Norbert Klingner leitet die Praxis.
