Bird & Bird recruits rising star of RB film group

Bird & Bird has recruited Richards Butler rated film finance associate David Quli and promoted him to partner.

He joined Bird & Bird to work in their UK-based film and TV finance/production team.

Quli said: “I left because of the opportunities I saw at Bird & Bird within the UK and European markets.”

His work goes beyond films and he hopes to introduce new opportunities for his banking and financing clients.

A Richards Butler spokesperson said: “We are sorry to lose David Quli. He is a very capable lawyer and we wish him well in his new endeavors.”

The Bird & Bird team has recently worked on a number of major films including Woody Allen’s first UK venture “Match Point” and his second film made in London, “Scoop.”
