Film and Media Finance
Perhaps the best known of the firm’s finance capabilities, Morgan Lewis’s Film and Entertainment Finance Practice lawyers have represented leading senior lenders for more than 25 years. Morgan Lewis predominately represents financial institutions in senior bank financings for theatrical, television, and direct-to-video production and distribution. We represent these senior lenders in secured transactions, a substantial number of which currently are film funds set up to enable the major studios (i.e., Disney, Paramount, Sony, Universal, Fox) to get the cost of production off their balance sheets.
As a result of representing the largest lenders in the industry, our attorneys have handled more motion picture and television industry–related financing transactions than almost any other law firm.
