Films/TV Programmes I have worked on

by RichardFindlay | created - 03 Nov 2017 | updated - 22 Feb 2019 | Public

Disclaimer: So many of the films I (and my team) worked on over the years did not reach the big screen for various reasons -but such is the nature of the industry. However this is a selection of films in which I (and in some cases, my team) played a part - however large or small, whether as production lawyers, finance lawyers, providing a legal opinion, handling location agreements or distribution - the role on each film varied in extent and complexity.
