Independent Production

Recognizing the growth and vitality of the independent production market, Akin Gump’s entertainment and media industry practice reaches beyond traditional studio representation to include counseling independent producers and production companies. In this capacity, Akin Gump lawyers aid the independent market in obtaining and structuring project financing and act as an extension of in-house legal, business and/or production executives. Working outside of the studio system, our lawyers are instrumental in devising the appropriate investment strategies, formulating split-rights deals and finding optimal distribution to suit these producers’ particular needs.
