With 30 years’ experience, Sean is the go-to content distribution and transmission advisor – leading on many of the most ground-breaking developments in the sector.

“I head our Content Distribution and Transmission team and focus on the creation, acquisition, licensing and distribution of content via television, online, mobile and other digital platforms.

I’m also a director and co-founder of three European video-on-demand businesses (Cirkus, Curio and Kritic). I advise across all their content acquisition and platform/OTT regulatory and contractual requirements, as well as assisting with formulating and developing strategy and expansion.

The beauty of this sector is that it’s always changing: every day sees a new challenge as the digital world accelerates. Often, it’s not about today’s problems but tomorrow’s – identifying and solving these issues is a great job to have”.

Sean James is a hugely experienced, hard-working and thoughtful lawyer with a keenly commercial approach. Very enjoyable to work with, provides a safe pair of hands on any matter and adds real value.
