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.”
