New hiring hoped to significantly boost the team’s film finance offering.

Media and entertainment firm Lee & Thompson LLP has appointed Sam Tatton-Brown as partner in its Film Group. 

Previously a partner at Davenport Lyons since 2004, Tatton-Brown joins Lee & Thompson on Monday (Nov 11).

His appointment boosts the number of fee earners in the Film & TV Group to 18.

In 2013, the Group has so far worked on more than 40 productions including Rush, Under the Skin, Kick Ass 2, The Gunman, Macbeth, Locke and Woman in Black: Angel of Death.

Reno Antoniades, head of film & TV and managing partner at Lee & Thompson said: “Sam’s arrival strengthens our growing finance practice and we are looking forward to the contribution that he will doubtless make to the Group and to the firm as a whole.”
