Top 200 law firm celebrates tie to Jane Austen’s summer smash

September 6, 2019

The commercial property team of top 200 law firm Roythornes Solicitors has joined the millions watching the exciting new period drama Sanditon in recognition of its longstanding relationship with production company Red Planet Pictures. 

Roythornes has worked with London-based Red Planet Pictures on a range of legal matters since 2016. Previously, the commercial property team completed the legal work required to lease a production studio on the complex set of popular television series, Dickensian.

Sanditon is a sumptuous ITV period drama that’s been adapted by Emmy® and BAFTA- winning screenwriter Andrew Davies based on Jane Austen’s unfinished final novel.

Kirsten Rimmer, senior associate at Roythornes, commented: “I’m delighted that the positive relationship between Roythornes and Red Planet Pictures has continued and been marked by the exciting start of Sanditon. This perfectly illustrates the breadth and scope of our services; not only in terms of client location but also the team’s skillset and experience.

“It’s always exciting to work alongside the Red Planet team during the creation of such a significant series; following the success of Dickensian and Sanditon, I can’t wait to see how our relationship develops for future productions.”

Roythornes, which was founded in 1934, offers services to clients across the UK from teams based in Nottingham, Alconbury, and Peterborough alongside its Spalding head office.
