Jonty has over 15 years’ experience advising on a range of issues affecting the computer games industry.

“Having spent the last 13 years working in-house at Electronic Arts, I have experience of working across some of the world’s biggest interactive entertainment properties as well as many innovations in the industry. I use this experience and industry knowledge to deliver strategic, commercial and solution orientated advice.

I can help you with a broad range of legal issues including age ratings, consumer protection, privacy, and regulatory issues, but my specialism is complex commercial transactions such as rights licensing, development deals, publishing and distribution agreements, marketing partnerships and sponsorships.

I also have specialist sports expertise, having managed a complex portfolio of licences and sponsorships for some of the world’s leading sports and racing video games. I use this experience to deliver practical solutions to clients dealing with issues around sports rights, sponsorships, and integrating content and brands into interactive entertainment properties, including esports.”
