Media Arts Lawyers extends reach to Brisbane

A recently promoted partner will take the reins in the new office

Media Arts Lawyers extends reach to Brisbane

Media Arts Lawyers has announced its expansion to the Sunshine State with a new Brisbane branch.

Marcus Walkom, who was promoted to partner last year, has been elected to head up the new office, which will launch in the middle of this year.

“I’m incredibly excited by the opportunity of opening the Brisbane office and thankful for the support and guidance of the other partners David, Stephen, Julian, Yasmin and Rob. Brisbane has until more recently been overshadowed by its eastern seaboard counterparts Sydney and Melbourne. However the growing recognition of the city – together with Queensland more broadly and Northern NSW - as a creative and cultural hub, made sense for the firm as we continue our growth as the largest boutique entertainment law firm in Australia and New Zealand,” he said.

Brisbane was “an obvious next choice” for the firm’s growing presence as it provides access to clients in Queensland and northern NSW, Media Arts Lawyers explained. Bigsound site Fortitude Valley has been selected as the Brisbane office’s location.

“I look forward to servicing the vibrant music, entertainment and creative industries throughout Queensland and Northern NSW as the region continues its evolution into a globally recognised home of the arts,” Walkom said.
