media and entertainment

In the fast-paced media and entertainment industry, GEP is at the forefront of ensuring that robust legal advisory services are provided to clients. We have engaged in the successful negotiations of the terms of a film distribution agreement between a film producer (our client) and an international film production and distribution company. We provided assistance to our client in the procurement of a film rating status from the appropriate regulatory bodies including the National Broadcasting Commission and the National Film and Video Censors Board. We advise clients on all extant laws on media and entertainment. We also advised a client on the legal and regulatory requirements for the expansion of a national reality television programme into the West African market. We liaised with the Nigerian Communication Commission and other regulatory bodies on the registration and protection of the client’s copyright and intellectual property
