Media law

Media law is a dynamic, specialist area.  Constant advances in technology affecting digital communications mean that the law evolves quickly.

We advise clients on all legal issues involved in publishing.  These issues range from avoiding contempt of court and defamation to obtaining the necessary copyright consents and ensuring licence agreements are in place.  Our clients include national broadcasters, small and medium enterprises, major household names, clients in the technology sector and public sector organisations.  We advise businesses across the UK and many of our lawyers are dual-qualified (Scotland/England and Wales).

Clear advice

We understand what is at stake for clients in terms of avoiding penalties and protecting reputations. Our lawyers are straight talking, pragmatic, accessible and media savvy. 

Benefits we bring

We are experts in this area and we routinely handle cases involving defamation, privacy, copyright and contempt of court.  We advise on numerous media law cases every year so know the possible pitfalls and how to avoid problems before they even arise. Whatever comes up, the chances are that we have seen it before.

Our approach to fees

We understand the importance of providing fee clarity and value for money.  We're happy to have an initial meeting to discuss how we can help.   We quote fixed fees so you have a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
