Descrição do cargo:

At Disney, we‘re storytellers. We make the impossible, possible. We do this through utilizing and developing cutting-edge technology and pushing the envelope to bring stories to life through our movies, direct-to-consumer streaming services, products, parks and experiences, and our television shows and networks. Now is your chance to join our talented team that delivers unparalleled creative content to audiences around the world.

The Distribution Legal group negotiates and provides legal counsel for the distribution of The Walt Disney Company’s world-class feature films, television content and online direct-to-consumer offerings. We represent Disney’s expansive portfolio of brands from the Walt Disney Studios (including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, Twentieth Century Studios and Searchlight) television entertainment, sports and news (including ABC Entertainment, ESPN, ABC News, Disney Channel/Disney Junior/Disney XD, FX Networks, National Geographic Channel and Freeform), and our innovative direct-to-consumer offerings (including Disney+, ESPN+, STAR+ and ABC News Live). The role is for the legal team supporting Disney Platform Distribution, which is part of the Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution (DMED) division.

This team is the legal hub for Disney content distribution on a global scale, including theatrical distribution, television network distribution, over-the-top distribution of direct-to-consumer offerings via video streaming platforms, physical home video, electronic home video (“EHV”), transactional video-on-demand (“TVOD”), subscription video-on-demand (“SVOD”), ad-supported video-on-demand (“AVOD”) and linear television. The group also advises business executives on distribution technology matters, related legal and policy matters, and handles content protection. The Distribution Legal group is seeking an inquisitive attorney to work in a fast-paced environment on innovative, high-profile, industry-leading content distribution matters for Disney Platform Distribution, including Internet and television distribution of Disney’s portfolio of motion picture and television titles on a linear (free, basic, pay), SVOD, AVOD and direct to consumer basis. We’re looking for a bright, energetic, self-motivated and reliable person who can work closely with other senior attorneys, and with other internal groups, and will exercise the highest level of ethics and discretion.

This position will serve two functions:

Its primary function will be to provide strategic advice and counsel to clients that manage EHV/TVOD/SVOD/pay television agreements, and interoperable platform distribution for The Walt Disney Company’s licensees on a “global” basis. Secondarily, this role will provide legal support to The Walt Disney Company’s physical (DVD/Blu-ray) in-home distribution team, including a variety of distribution channels and ancillary initiatives.

As such, a successful candidate will (1) liaise with Disney’s international counsel, regional lawyers, and domestic/ international business & cross-functional teams to ensure consistency among the company’s various agreements, (2) handle all drafting, and (3) collaborate with business and legal counterparts in the negotiation and closure of various transactions. To facilitate the above, this position will serve as the primary legal point-person for designated Disney’s licensees and customers, interfacing with high-level business and legal executives throughout The Walt Disney Company, both domestically and globally.

Responsabilidades:

  • Draft, negotiate, and close complex transactions with Disney’s licensees/customers.
  • Provide advice and counsel to legal counterparts and business/cross-functional teams regarding the terms of such agreements.
  • Facilitate the implementation of various business strategies in product distribution for sell-through/rental business models, physical/digital hybrid models, cross lines of business opportunities (e.g., consumer products), and other distribution-related initiatives.

  • Significant transactional experience in the entertainment industry.
