Paul Taylor, former CEO of creative regional support organisation Vision+Media and commercial director of Granada, has opened a specialist commercial and legal consultancy for the TV and media industry.

Taylor, a qualified lawyer, will be joined in running Big Deal Creative out of MediaCityUK by Granada colleague Maureen Walker, with Cory Bryant having been appointed as office and contracts manager.

Big Deal Creative will offer support to businesses and talent covering commercial strategy, deal making and business affairs.

Taylor explained: "For many independent media businesses the creative talent leads and commercial, legal and financial expertise plays second fiddle. Also, many smaller indies simply can't afford to employ full-time commercial or business affairs support. In a fast changing market, where business models are constantly evolving, issues around rights protection and exploitation are becoming increasingly important, and more and more businesses are entering into partnerships and joint ventures, this sort of expertise is critical."

The company will be based at The Greenhouse at MediaCityUK.
