South Africa's Leading Specialist Entertainment Law Firm

We have been proudly credited in numerous successes including academy winners and nominees "Invictus", "District 9" and "Mad Max 4: Fury Road".

We focus on the super-niche areas of entertainment, sports, music, and advertising. This is what we do all day, every day. No law firm, or for that matter any professional services firm in South Africa, boasts the sports and entertainment client base from producers to financiers, that we have. As at beginning of 2020 we have been involved in over 200 film and television projects with budgets up to $200 Million.

Our extensive client base includes studios, financiers and predominant local producers, who consistently appoint Irish MacLeod Inc as their South African legal counsel.

 

We also represent a wide array of award winning and successful local producers.

 
 

Whether it is drafting option agreements, music and royalty deals, chain of title agreements, settling talent deals or financing and structuring complicated co-production deals, our record speaks for itself. Add to this an extremely competitive fee structure that understands the entertainment business and it is easy to see why the world's leading studios, production companies and funding institutions involved in film choose to work with Irish MacLeod Inc.

"Dark Tower", "Maze Runner 3: The Death Cure", "Liberty", "Love Jacked", "The Forgiven", "Tomb Raider 2", "Black Sails", "Action Park", "Red Sea Diving Resort", "Accident", "Kissing Booth", "Kissing Booth 2", "Semi-Soet", "Whale Caller", "Noem my Skollie", "Sulphur and White", "Sew The Winter To My Skin", "Redeeming Love", "Survivor South Africa", "Bulletproof", "Love on Safari", "Rogue", and "Last Days of American Crime".
