People Medwyn Jones

Medwyn Jones

Consultant Partner

With over 30 years’ experience advising the television production sector, Medwyn is one of the UK’s leading television lawyers.

“Having grown up with the UK independent television sector (I have acted for leading production companies, rights owners, writers, on-screen and production talent since the late 1980s), I have seen the amazing development of the sector to its current world-beating status.

I see my role as more than simply a lawyer, but rather as a key advisor, helping to achieve both the creative and financial aspirations of our clients. Whether it is development, finance, production or distribution of television programmes, I draw on my extensive experience and contacts across the industry to help get production made, and maximise revenues.

Having spent the first part of my career involved in UK and international corporate acquisitions and disposals before focusing on the television industry, I continue to work closely with my colleagues in our Corporate Group to provide a high quality, holistic service to clients involved in sales and acquisitions in the television sector.

My commitment to the audio-visual industries is demonstrated by my long association with BAFTA (where having served as a Board member and Trustee from 2009 to 2016, I continue to act as Chairman of the BAFTA’s operating company, BAFTA Management Limited, as well attending Board meetings as an advisor to the Board).

I am passionate about the UK audio-visual sector, and it is this passion which I bring to my work with our clients.”

Medwyn Jones moves at an amazing pace because he's got decades of experience. He can identify the critical issues and give fast responses on them and address them.
