The video games industry is experiencing a resurgence in the UK through increased exports from the leading developers & publishers, more distribution channels, new independent games studios and help from the government in the form of industry tax breaks.

Our team provides legal support to developers, publishers and professionals operating within the dynamic global games sector.

Whether you require assistance in creating, acquiring and licensing intellectual property rights or help with negotiating and drafting agreements we can help.

We advise in relation to all games contracts including: publishing agreements, distributions agreements, porting agreements, mobile applications and development agreements, on-line gaming agreements, freelancer agreements and synchronisation agreements. We provide advice on copyright infringement claims and how to effectively protect the content you create.

We can also help with video games tax relief.
