Our detailed knowledge of the industry is evident from the quality of our service — we don’t need to spend time on a learning curve to understand our clients’ issues.
Our expertise is multi-faceted and covers a broad range of areas. We handle a large volume of legal, regulatory and contractual issues in broadcast, digital and print media, film, sports and advertising.
We have a highly regarded expertise in the area of reputation management and regularly undertake proceedings for defamation, breach of privacy and/or confidential information. We also have many years of practical ‘front-line’ experience in providing pre-publication/broadcast advice for the television and publishing industries.
Whatever the medium, we cover a wide range of contentious and non-contentious legal issues.
