There’s still no business like show business. Nowadays, however, media and entertainment are much more than art and culture. It used to be a clearly defined area, but today pervades almost all industries and sectors.

Whether as branded content, infotainment, gamification, or following the shift from TV to video on demand. At the same time, virtual and augmented reality already point to where the journey goes next.


SKW Schwarz has an excellent reputation in all of these areas. We were recognized as Law Firm of the Year for Media and Technology at the 2016 JUVE Awards. The trade magazine confirms our firm “to be on the digital fast lane” and “having left behind competitors in several respects” through profound industry knowledge, several renowned partners, and by focusing on close interface consulting. The last point is crucial today. As digital change blurs the boundaries between classical and digital publications, legal advice needs to operate across media and technologies.

SKW Schwarz supports upcoming producer talents and awards an annual scholarship in kind (legal advice & mentoring) for young film- and television producers. For more information see here (information in German) and the application form see here (application form in German).
