Media & Entertainment Industries

We’ve been called the connoisseur’s choice….

Our media team is highly regarded within the industry. The Legal 500 reports: “This highly experienced team offers a “personalised service and excellent turnaround times and is finely tuned to the needs of clients”. Our team “ explain everything quickly and clearly, and have superb analytical skills”.

Our media experience extends back to the formative years of commercial television and since then, our media practice has consistently been central to our practice and to our hard-won reputation.

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.

Our media clients also face the daily issues that confront any organisation, including employment law, property, company formations, joint ventures and take-overs. In these and other matters, we draw on the resources of the other specialist departments in our firm.
