Entertainment, Digital, & Sports

Jackson Walker’s Entertainment, Digital, & Sports Group leverages both its years of experience and full-service resources and capabilities to provide clients with valued advice in the multiple sectors and disciplines of the entertainment and sports industries, including with respect to their digital or “new media” matters.

Not surprisingly, the digital marketplace has quickly become the focus of Jackson Walker’s clients within entertainment, sports, and across other commercial industries. Advances in new technology are leading to new fields of industry and, in turn, new legislation and precedent-setting cases on a seemingly regular basis. The multidimensional development of the new digital age, together with the globalization of financing, production, distribution, and licensing, is driving change at a speed and level of complexity never before encountered.

Clients turn to Jackson Walker because they are looking for creative, insightful attorneys who combine business acumen, legal experience, and vision to guide them safely and profitably through both known and unexplored commercial and legal landscapes. Such cutting-edge advice requires unique market insights about what drives these industries and the legal acuity necessary to not only know what today’s issues are, but to anticipate what tomorrow’s issues will be as technology and its related business models and practices continue to develop.
