Sydney, (April 2017) - TressCox Lawyers is assisting the Attitude Foundation on its production agreement and distribution rights for the planned pilot episode and TV series featuring people with disabilities.

Clare Mirabello, a highly experienced media and entertainment lawyer, is advising the Foundation and this support is part of TressCox’s pro bono practice, which is led by Partner, Karen Keogh

Clare has long-standing practical experience, especially with Australian productions and ensuring that we properly manage all forms of distribution from television to digital platforms and social media.”
