Ekaterina Joukova, Lawyer

  • "At the heart of several fascinating business sectors"

    My role is to accompany Reed MIDEM’s teams in their respective projects in the area of business and economic law related to our activities as an event organiser, especially in the entertainment sector.

    What I appreciate in my work is that we are right at the heart of several fascinating business sectors, whilst at the same time responsible for the tangible creation of a major event. I get great personal satisfaction from seeing the shows actually being put in place, and seeing the results of my legal contribution such as negotiations, legal advice and drawing up contracts carried out ahead of time. And I appreciate the beauty of our shows, which represent a great team effort by talented people, which results in an international reputation and recognition.

    I also like the fact that we have the opportunity to work, both internally and externally, with people from very different backgrounds, cultures and nationalities – no doubt because I myself am Franco-Russian. It’s intellectually stimulating to work in a spirit of international openness, with the possibility to practice several languages in the workplace.

    My advice for a candidate would be: speak several languages, be excellent in your field, and know how to adapt.
