Nash & Co provides legal advice to the television production industry including financing, production and exploitation of television content. Duncan White and Tim Jackman both joined the firm in January 2017 from Twofour Group which is part of ITV. Highlights include providing support to Label1 television who produce the television programme Hospital which aired on BBC. This involved advising on contempt, privacy and the correct police procedure under PACE due to the fact that the programme had been filming at St Mary’s Hospital when Khalid Masood was admitted to A & E after the Westminster terror attack. Clients include Twofour Group and Boom Cymru TV.

‘Responsive, proactive and extremely capable’, the corporate lawyers at Nash & Co provide ‘excellent commercial advice in language that is easy for clients to understand’. The firm significantly enhanced its corporate capabilities in 2017 with the hires Tim Jackman (‘a driven and passionate deal-maker’) and associate Duncan White, both of whom joined from the legal team at media company Twofour Group, and had previously worked together at Bond Pearce. Given the pair’s pedigree, the team has unique experience of commercial matters in the media and telecoms sectors. Acting across from two multinational law firms, Jackman and White assisted Patrick Corporate Investment with its sale of Quickstore Storage to Big Yellow, in a transaction that required a complex pre-sale restructuring. The ‘responsive and relatable’ Austin Blackburn has been involved in a number of corporate restructurings and has particular expertise in IP law.
