Alex Chapman is an intellectual property expert and leading lawyer in the interactive entertainment, leisure and creative industries. He has an especially strong reputation in computer games and digital media, with first hand knowledge of the sectors as part of the development teams on a number of successful projects before taking up the law. He now acts for some of Europe's top developers and publishers and is regarded by the UK legal directories as "a star", "worth every penny" and "a leading authority on IP law pertaining to computer games" (Legal 500) and "an expert in the computer games sector" rated for "fighting his clients' corners well" (Chambers and Partners). Alex is also listed in Develop Magazine's 25 most important people in the UK games development industry. He is also highly regarded across the creative and leisure industries, particularly advising a wide range of clients from brand owners to sports personalities in relation to intellectual property and commercial rights issues. In this area Chambers and Partners comment that Alex “covers the whole spectrum of IP rights brilliantly and goes through things in great detail.” As software and entertainment media increasingly come together Alex consequently regularly advises, writes and presents on transmedia and convergence matters.
