Whether it's sitting on numerous boards to campaign for Pact members’ interests, giving direct legal advice when it's needed, or ensuring that producers are kept up to date with the most recent terms of trade - our legal & business affairs department is an integral part of Pact and of huge benefit to our members.
The legal team’s knowledge and experience is second to none. They are always available to answer the phone or reply to an email and help with legal questions – whether it be a question on terms of trade, an industry issue, or a small production specific query.
