Anna joined Reviewed & Cleared in November 2018 from our joint venture partner Wiggin (whom she joined in 2000). Anna continues to work with Wiggin as a consultant.
Anna’s extensive experience as a media lawyer has seen her advise on film and television productions (for studios, broadcasters and production companies), the ‘Big Five’ book publishers, local and national newspapers, scientific and academic journal publishers and the whole gamut of magazine publishers, including specialist industry titles, football and automotive titles, fashion, lifestyle celebrity and, during the ‘00s, the infamous ‘lads’ magazines.
On the film production side, in addition to script reads, Anna advises on rights acquisition issues, chain of title, E&O applications and production clearance issues and fair dealing.
Anna also has considerable experience as a specialist media defence lawyer, in libel and privacy actions, contempt of court prosecutions and copyright infringement actions. Most notably Anna is increasingly becoming the ‘go to’ lawyer for legal issues regarding authorship/plagiarism claims.
