Media Lawyers

No matter who you are, your reputation is one of your most valuable assets.

Whether in the public eye, commerce and industry, politics or simply a member of the public, if your reputation has been damaged by something written or spoken, you need to take action. Action doesn’t necessarily mean litigation.

You may simply want an apology or the immediate removal of an offending publication. Our media lawyers have acted for individuals and international media organisations when reputations are at risk, providing commercially sound advice with the aim of a swift resolution.

Privacy, Reputation Management

Media law covers an enormous legal discipline and our advice extends beyond reputation management to general commercial advice relevant to the media sector. As well as specialist legal assistance in respect of actions for defamation, allegations of breaches of privacy law and the right to be forgotten, we also provide advice in respect of commercial contracts and pre and post publication legal matters.

If it appears that litigation is the only option, we are renowned for our robust yet discrete approach in defending our clients’ interests. Media litigation has a reputation for being costly but it doesn’t have to be. We will always explore funding options for our clients and however your matter is funded, we will always work cost-effectively.

Commercial advice and media agreements

Our experienced commercial lawyers are adept at negotiating and drafting a wide variety of media law related agreements. The team gives practical advice to producers, music publishers, performers, composed and musicians, distributors, production companies and broadcasters and can advise on:

· Licensing

· Music for films and television

· Production Agreements

· Director & Producer Agreements

· Location Agreements

· Cast & Crew Agreements

· Recording Agreements

· Publishing Agreements

· Management Agreements

· Band Agreements

· Copyright

Our Media Law Experience

Drawing on over 40 years of knowledge and experience, our expert partner-led media law team includes those who previously worked in public relations. Our advice always takes reputational issues into consideration and we have an excellent track record successfully protecting our clients’ interests. Our media law work includes:

  • Advising individuals before the Leveson Inquiry and Parliamentary Committees in the wake of the News of the World phone-hacking scandal
  • Assisting an international news broadcaster during two major criminal and regulatory investigations, both of which were discontinued following the representations we made on their behalf
  • Obtaining an injunction for a well-known businessman and entrepreneur to prohibit the publication of defamatory blogs and securing their removal
