She will be based in the firm’s London office with a remit to expand the firm’s media practice.

Media and entertainment lawyer Lisa Logan has joined UK national law firm Gateley’s commercial, media and technology team as a partner.

Logan worked as an in-house lawyer at Disney, Nickelodeon and the Discovery Channel, where she headed up music and talent as well as being responsible for TV production legal matters for the Discovery Channel UK.

She was the first UK media lawyer to advise on post-production product placement since the introduction of the new laws governing its use within television broadcasting.

“The media and entertainment industry is constantly evolving and is incredibly fast paced and this is what drives my enthusiasm for working in this area of the legal sector,” said Logan, who also sits on the PACT product placement committee.
