Islam Channel legal chief joins gaming business Konami

The sole in-house legal advisor at Islam Channel TV has left to join Japanese gaming company Konami.

Tinu Adeshile

Tinu Adeshile, general counsel at the Bonhill Street-based media organisation, will fulfil the same role at Konami.

She is working for Konami’s UK digital entertainment business venture, currently employing around 20 staff, but set to expand to around 150 people.

The role will have a particular focus on licensing law, especially IP and commercial rights on games and content.

Adeshile started her career as a paralegal at Calvert Solicitors. She featured in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 this year after forging a successful legal career in the media industry (28 January 2013).

She joined Islam Channel in September 2011 after qualifying with Calverts, having worked full-time to fund her part-time CPE and LPC studies.

Adeshile is also the vice-chair of the Plumstead Law Centre and is helping with fundraising to try to secure the organisation’s future (5 November 2012).

At Konami, which produces market leading games titles such as Pro Evolution Soccer, Adeshile will be based in Windsor as its sole in-house legal advisor.
